Banana Berry Breakfast Smoothie Recipe

Yields: 1-2 servings
Prep Time: 5 minutes

Ingredients

Base

  • 1 frozen banana (ripe is best for sweetness)
  • 1 cup frozen mixed berries (or your favorite berry combo)
  • 1 cup milk of choice (dairy, almond, soy, oat, etc.)
  • 1/2 cup plain or vanilla yogurt (Greek yogurt for extra protein)

Optional Add-ins (choose a few!)

  • 1 tablespoon nut butter (peanut, almond, etc.)
  • 1-2 tablespoons chia seeds or flaxseeds
  • 1/4 cup rolled oats
  • A scoop of protein powder
  • Handful of spinach or kale
  • Pinch of cinnamon or other spices

Equipment

  • Blender

Instructions

1. Combine ingredients: Add all your ingredients to the blender. For a thicker smoothie, start with a little less milk and add more if needed.

2. Blend: Blend until completely smooth. This might take 30 seconds to a minute depending on your blender’s power.

3. Adjust: Taste and adjust as needed. If the smoothie’s too thick, add more milk. If it’s not sweet enough, add a drizzle of honey, maple syrup, or a bit more banana.

4. Enjoy: Pour into a glass and enjoy immediately!

Tips

Freeze your own bananas: If you have overripe bananas, peel them, break them into chunks, and freeze them in a baggie. Perfect for smoothies!

Customizable: This recipe is a great base. Play with different fruits, add-ins, and spices to create your signature smoothie.

Make ahead (sort of): You can prep smoothie packs by portioning and freezing ingredients (minus the liquids) in freezer bags. In the morning, dump the bag in the blender with your milk and yogurt!
