Ingredients

  • 2 cups frozen mixed berries
  • 1 cup milk (substitute your favorite dairy-free milk. I like coconut milk.)
  • 2 ripe bananas
  • 1/4 teaspoon fresh grated ginger
  • 2 tablespoons sweetener (Optional, if desired, can add two dates, coconut sugar, maple syrup, honey, agave, sugar-free substiitute.)

Instructions

  1. Place all ingredients into a blender and blend for several minutes until smooth and frothy.
  2. Taste and add sweetener if needed or desired. I usually don't need it.

  3. Serve into two glasses and enjoy!

  4. May be stored in the refrigerator for up to 2 days.

  5. Note:  Try to use organic berries if available.  Additionally, fresh strawberries and blueberries may be available seasonally, locally through farms.

Recipe Notes

  • If using fresh berries, add one cup of crushed ice to achieve the thickness of the smoothie.
  • Garnish with mint leaves or berries if desired.
  • Replace agave with honey (not vegan) or maple syrup (it will change the flavor slightly).
  • Replace milk with yogurt (regular or dairy-free) to make a thick smoothie bowl.
  • Use leftovers to make mixed berries popsicles!
