Blueberry-Raspberry Smoothie Recipe

Tuesday, May 2nd, 2017

This recipe combines blueberries and raspberries for a delicious and filling smoothie you’ll enjoy having every day (if you so choose). We have used frozen raspberries and fresh blueberries, so if you don’t use both fresh and frozen, the ingredients will need to be altered slightly (add about 1/2 cup ice if not using any frozen berries; add about 1/2 cup more milk if using both frozen raspberries and frozen blueberries), and increase the amounts if you’re serving others too. This smoothie is best enjoyed right away, but can be kept in the fridge for about two days for a quick, on the go healthy breakfast or snack.

Blueberry Raspberry Smoothie Recipe

What you’ll need:

  • 3/4 cup 2% or 1% milk
  • 1/2 cup vanilla yogurt
  • 1 cup fresh blueberries
  • 1 cup frozen raspberries
  • 1 tablespoon honey

Directions:

  1. Pour milk and yogurt into a blender, followed by berries and honey.
  2. Blend until smooth and strain if desired.
