With berries popping up at Farmer’s markets everywhere, smoothie season is also in full swing!
Smoothies are so quick to prepare and an easy way to get a lot of nutrition into one small glass. I love them.
The following recipe calls for a variety of berries and a cup of green tea. Both are full of antioxidants and give this smoothie a refreshing taste.
It’s a great way to start your day or boost your afternoon.
Green Tea Berry Smoothie
Makes about 2 cups of smoothie.
5 frozen whole strawberries
½ cup frozen blackberries
1/4 cup frozen blueberries
½ cup brewed green tea, cooled to room temperature
1/4 cup plain yogurt
½ cup cranberry juice
2 Tbsp. Honey
Put all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth.
Tweak the ingredients to suit your taste or use what you have available. It’s hard to mess this recipe up – leave out or add other ingredients as you see fit.
This recipe is based on one I found in the January 2008 issue of Sunset magazine (it used soy milk instead of yogurt and frozen cranberries instead of the juice).
