A mug filled with mixed berry smoothie and garnished with fresh berries.

Can you ever have too many smoothie recipes? I don’t think so! This mixed berry smoothie is my girls’ current favorite, so I figured it was time I shared it all with you too. It takes about 5 minutes to make, and it’s packed with protein thanks to Greek yogurt so it’s both filling and refreshing.

How do you make a mixed berry smoothie?

This mixed berry smoothie is simply frozen berries, banana, vanilla Greek yogurt, liquid of your choice, and sweetener if you desire. I buy bags of mixed frozen berries and always have a few in the freezer for when a smoothie craving strikes. I typically make these smoothies with apple juice as it eliminates the need to add any sweetener later on. Other liquid choices are skim milk, almond milk, coconut milk or even a cranberry juice would be nice. When I do sweeten smoothies, I typically reach for a little honey. Like I said, it’s really not needed here if you’re using juice, but you may want to add some if you go with a less sweet liquid like skim milk.

I have an insanely picky 3 year old, and on days when I can’t get her to eat more than 2 bites of anything, these mixed berry smoothies are a lifesaver. Nutrients, protein, fiber – and they happen to be her favorite color, bright pink! So while this may be a simple recipe, it’s definitely worthy of sharing for all of you out there who are trying to get your families to eat (and drink!) healthier. Hope you enjoy!

  1. Hey – this looks great!
    One question, I am looking to make this even more healthy by adding milled chia seeds.
    Will this affect the taste/consistency of the smoothie?
    If you think this would be a good idea, please would you be able to tell me how much to add?

    Many thx!

    Delicious, followed exact recipe, without honey. Also made it with almond milk, both taste delicious.

    1. Using frozen yogurt is just as good, but did you know you donโ€™t even have to use yogurt If youโ€™re trying to make a low calorie smoothie with mostly just fruit?
      Ingredients: 1 cup mixed berries frozen
      1/2 cup of milk (almond milk if wanted)
      1/2 cup banana slices (or half a banana)
      Enjoy! ๐Ÿ˜„

        Delicious! I would say if you want a lower calorie smoothie, use plain yogurt or omit the yogurt and use slightly less apple juice/milk. My family loved this recipe!

  3. Sounds yum and I canโ€™t wait to try it tomorrow once my new blender arrives! I am new to smoothies and wondering why some fruits are used frozen in most? If I donโ€™t like my smoothie too cold is it ok to use non frozen? Or does it change the texture or taste?

    1. Frozen fruit is typically used because it gives the smoothie a thicker texture. You can use fresh fruit if you prefer, it will just be a little thinner!

    Super delicious!!! I recommend adding a couple pinches of chia seeds to make this extra healthy! Chia seeds contain tons of fiber!

    Sooooooo delicious! Followed the recipe exactly and used Apple juice (no honey). If you don’t like it too sweet I would sub milk ๐Ÿ™‚
