Ingredients

  • 2 cups mixed berries thawed for 5 minutes
  • 1 medium-sized banana cut into 1-inch chunks
  • ½ cup milk unsweetened*
  • ¼ cup yogurt plain*
  • 1-2 Tbsp. sweetener optional
  • 1 tsp. lemon zest

Instructions

  1. Add all ingredients to a blender such as a Vitamin or Nutribullet. Place the softer ingredients closer to the blade and the frozen ingredients further from the blade.

  2. Blend for 1-2 minutes or until smooth and creamy.
  3. Serve with fresh berries, additional lemon zest, and a straw. Enjoy!

Recipe Notes

  • This recipe makes enough for two 8-oz. smoothies or one large, 16-oz. smoothie.
  • Regular, oat, cashew, almond, soy, or coconut milk may all be used.
  • Greek yogurt, goat yogurt, or any other plant or nut-based yogurt may be used.

Prep-Ahead Directions

Measure out the ingredients and store in a freezer-safe bag. Keep the bags in the freezer for up to 3-4 months. 

When ready to serve, slightly defrost at room temperature for 30 minutes. You can also pop them in the microwave for a few seconds if you're in a hurry. Then blend and enjoy!

Expert Tips and Tricks

  • Use a combo of fresh and frozen fruits. This makes it easier to blend together.
  • Choose unsweetened milk. This way you can adjust the sweetness to taste.
  • Buy organic when possible. Organic fruit has more flavor so it won't be as watered down. Plus, it's healthier for you!
  • Make sure the banana is ripe. Unripe bananas will not be as naturally sweet and you'll end up needing to add a lot more sweetener.
  • Mix it up. Switch up the berries or even throw in other fruits such as mango, pineapple, or peaches.
