Berry Yogurt Smoothie Ingredients
Berries: It all starts with frozen berries. Any type will do. As you can see, I’ve used a mix of strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, and blackberries. It was a berry mix that I picked up in the grocery store’s freezer section. Any combination works well here. Mix and match your favorites, or use all of one kind if you prefer.
Yogurt: Next, add in your unsweetened non-dairy yogurt of choice. Use plain or vanilla flavored. If using the plain flavor, you may like to add a splash of vanilla extract or 1/2 teaspoon of ground vanilla to the mixture before mixing.
Banana: To add a banana or not? I’ve made this smoothie both ways, with and without a banana, and I must say the one with the banana was the better of the two. I used a room temp banana, which added extra creaminess and made it slightly less icy. It will also add some bulk and extra added nutrition. If you have one on hand, by all means, add it in!
Non-Dairy Milk: Lastly, you’ll want to add about 1/2 cup of unsweetened non-dairy milk or water to help get everything moving in the mixer, adding an extra splash or two as needed.
Toppings: Some optional toppings to consider are frozen berries, granola, cocoa nibs, and coconut flakes, to name a few.
How To Make Mixed Berry Smoothie
Making a mixed berry & yogurt smoothie is so easy and ready in minutes!
- Place ingredients into your blender, blend until smooth, stop every now, and then scrape down the sides if needed. Add an extra splash of non-dairy milk or water as needed.
- Once ingredients are blended, serve your smoothie in a glass with a straw/spoon or enjoy your smoothie from a bowl. Either way, adding a few toppings will take your smoothie over the top.
Now you are ready to sit back, relax and enjoy this frosty berry sensation! ❄️
- Add healthy omegas. For an extra boost of nutrition, try adding 1 tablespoon of hemp seeds, ground flaxseeds, or chia seeds!
- Adjusting for variations. Use all frozen fruits, or mix and match frozen fresh and frozen fruits. If using all frozen fruits, you can expect a thicker smoothie and may need to add a tad extra liquids to help it move along in the blender.
