Healthy Triple Berry Smoothie

    This year, patriotic and healthy will go hand in hand! One of our favorite food bloggers, In Katrina’s Kitchen, makes this absolutely delicious triple berry frozen smoothie.

    Ingredients:

    For the blue layer:

    • 1/2 cup milk or cranberry juice
    • 1 cup blueberries, fresh or frozen
    • 1 tablespoon honey
    • 3 oz yogurt (I used Lemon Chobani)
    • 5-8 ice cubes

    For the white layer:

    • 1/2 cup milk
    • 1 tablespoon honey
    • 6 oz yogurt (I used Lemon Chobani)
    • 6-8 ice cubes

    For the red layer:

    • 1/2 cup milk or cranberry juice
    • 1 cup strawberries, fresh or frozen
    • 1/2 cup pitted cherries, fresh or frozen
    • 1 tablespoon honey
    • 3 oz yogurt (I used Lemon Chobani)
    • 5-8 ice cubes

    Direction:

    1. Blend together the ingredients for the blue layer and divide into 3 (or more) glasses. Place in the freezer for 10 minutes.
    2. Repeat for each layer, freezing for at least 10 minutes in between each color.
    3. Let thaw for 10 minutes before serving.
    Notes:

    • I used 2 (6 oz) containers of Lemon Chobani Yogurt to make these smoothies. One 6 oz container is split between the red and blue layer. The white layer gets a full 6 oz container.
    • Use juice instead of milk for the red and blue layer for a deeper color. Use milk for a lighter color and a bump in protein.
    • As with any smoothie recipe you can flavor to your liking- feel free to omit the honey if it is sweet enough for you without it.
