The Mixed Berry Smoothie

- Advertisement -

Over the past couple of years, smoothies have become extremely popular, whether it’s because of the raised awareness about healthy food options, lack of time to prepare elaborate meals and the need for something on the go or simply because when we look at those fantastic colourful smoothie pics on Instagram, we cannot resist but try to make one ourselves.

But genuinely speaking, smoothies indeed are a healthy option for breakfast or those in-between hunger pangs. Unlike the presumption that healthy foods are not very delicious, smoothies are as good to taste as they usually look.

There are numerous ways you can make a smoothie, but here I am sharing a personal favourite- The Mixed Berry Smoothie.

In my recipe I do not add any sugar, instead add a slightly sweeter food like apple or banana to balance the tanginess of berries but if at all you feel the need to make your smoothie sweeter, add some honey or jaggery in place of sugar.

Now coming to the recipe

Ingredients

One cup of milk (toned, almond or coconut milk)

One banana sliced

One and a half cups mixed berries

3/4th cup vanilla Greek yoghurt

One tablespoon of honey (optional)

Some berries and mint leaves for garnishing (optional)

Method

Place the milk, banana, berries and, yoghurt in a blender; blend until smooth. If the smoothie seems too thick, add a little more liquid (1/4 cup). If you like it thick, empty it in a bowl instead and top it up with some more fruits of your choice, some nuts and seeds.

Taste and add honey if desired. Pour into a glass and garnish with fresh berries and mint sprigs if desired.

I hope you enjoy the recipe as much as I do.
