Berry banana smoothie

IMG_5447

I love to start my day with a cold fruit smoothie, especially in the hot months of summer. I know, I know, it’s October. But here in Southern California it still feels like July, so I often opt for a cold smoothie over a pumpkin spice latte (sorry, world).

Smoothies are perfect because they’re so versatile. You can basically use any fruit you have on hand, fresh or frozen. I love using banana as a base to get a thick consistency and fresh berries to really bring out that fruity flavor and vibrant color. Although there are endless fruit combos when making smoothies, I found this one particularly tasty (and pretty)! I used mostly fresh fruit because I think it packs a bigger punch flavor wise, but feel free to use frozen if that’s your style.

Enjoy.

Ingredients 

  • Ice
  • Banana
  • Strawberries
  • Raspberries
  • Frozen mango
  • Vanilla greek yogurt
  • Almond milk

Instructions 

In a blender combine all ingredients and blend until smooth. For a thicker consistency add more yogurt, and for a thinner consistency add more almond milk.

If you don’t like almond milk, coconut milk and coconut water are good substitutes. And if you don’t like those, use whatever liquid your little heart desires.
