Mixed Berry Smoothie

Smoothies are such a great option for breakfast when you have a busy day ahead of you. The past few weeks have been hectic around here and I’ve been loving this mixed berry smoothie a lot. The thing about smoothies is you can prepare your ingredients ahead of time and whip one up in 5 minutes. I like to keep single portions of mixed fruit in my freezer so that I can easily throw one into the blender with some milk or juice to make a smoothie. Breakfast doesn’t get any more convenient than this, does it?

This mixed berry smoothie is healthy, filling and delicious. Depending on where you get your berries, they can be a little tart, and the key to balancing out their tartness is a few slices of ripe banana. I usually make this berry smoothie without any added sweetener to keep it on the healthier side and find that banana is such a great natural sweetener. Not only does it sweeten, but it also gives the smoothie the creaminess that many of us enjoy.

Though, I don’t like my smoothies way too creamy, and that’s where my favorite smoothie ingredient, peach, comes in. I think peach works really well in smoothies and makes them exactly how they should be, which is smooth. Adding peach reduces the creaminess of the banana while you can still get the sweetness from it.

HOW DO I GET A NICE BERRY SMOOTHIE CONSISTENCY?

Freeze your fruit. I do this religiously for my smoothies. Frozen fruit makes smoothies a little thicker and a little more ice cream-like, especially when you add some frozen banana and peach as mentioned above. if you’re one of those who finds it hard to enjoy room-temperature smoothies like me, you’ll appreciate this. 😉

WHAT LIQUID DO I USE IN  MY BERRY SMOOTHIE?

I use soy milk in this recipe because I want to add some protein to the smoothie. Plus the soy milk isn’t too thick or too light so when it’s blended with the banana, berries and peach, you get a nice smoothie texture. However, if you’re not a fan of soy milk, you can definitely replace it with any milk you want or you could even use some fruit juice.

    I start most days with a smoothie which often includes berries (fresh or frozen) . I’ve never made smoothies with soy milk. I want to try that. Yours looks so good!
