Berry Smoothie-3

Those four factors make smoothes in the summer a go-to, must-have in your kitchen!

I will be posting more smoothie recipes as a part of my Summer No-Bake Series! This recipe is just a start, but I’ve got more up my sleeve I’m wanting to try.  For now though, I’m going to KEEP IT SIMPLE! 🙂

So here is number 3 in my No-Bake Series!

summer NO-BAKE

You will need:

A blender

A spoon

A glass or mason jar

Berry Smoothie-4

Ingredients:

1/2 cup rasperries – fresh, and washed

1/2 cup blueberries – fresh, and washed

1/2 cup whole-fat OR non-fat greek yogurt

1 Tablespoon honey

2 Tablespoons of almond milk

1 teaspoon cinnamon

1/2 Tablespoon lemon juice or key lime juice!

(I had a bunch of key limes leftover from my Ice Box Cake recipe…)

1/2 cup ice cubes

Lemon Pudding Cup-2

Directions:

  1. Pick through your berries after you’ve washed them and make sure there aren’t any moldy ones.  That’s the worst!!  I mean, the taste might disappear into your smoothie, but it’s still a good practice to wash and sort your fruit.  (And veggies for that matter!) You can also give them a vinegar bath if you don’t intend to use them right away.
  1. Dump the berries and scoop the yogurt into your blender.  Blend on low for a few seconds.
  2.  Add the honey, milk, cinnamon and lemon juice.  Blend a few more seconds.

  3.  Add the ice last and blend on high until smooth.

  4. Poor into glass and enjoy!

Berry Smoothie-1

Ok ok, I know my pictures don’t reflect this order, but I’ve made it a few times and I like doing it a little bit at a time, better.  🙂

 

Like I said, this one is short and sweet and simple.  But I will be adding more as the weeks progress.  Especially as I experiment with more protein powders (I found a vegan one I really like!).  I also want to try some with veggies and other non-traditional ingredients.  There’s so much out there to blend together that the possibilities are infinite 🙂

Try your own and share your results!

Enjoy!
