Very Berry Smoothie and Whole Food’s Frozen Berry Blend

ncVeryBerrySmnm

Do you ever shop at Whole Foods Market? I love going there whenever I have the chance! The closest one to me is about an hour and a half away, so I stock up on things when I go. I recently heard about some new products in the Whole Foods Market 365 Everyday Value brand of organic frozen fruits and veggies. I was excited to have a chance to try some out, too, compliments of Whole Foods!

The new item in their organic frozen fruit selection is the Frozen Berry Blend, which I used in my Very Berry Smoothie recipe. I also picked up some frozen blackberries to make a Blackberry Crumble, and I’ll be sharing that recipe with you soon. There’s also some new organic frozen veggie blends that I’ll be trying out and telling you about …the Organic Southwestern Blend, Mediterranean Blend, and Leafy Greens Blend. Don’t those all sound good and healthy?

But for now, I’ll tell you more about the smoothie I created with the Frozen Berry Blend, which is a delicious combination of strawberries, blueberries, and blackberries. I just love this smoothie–it’s one of the creamiest, smoothest, smoothies I’ve made! I’m sure the organic frozen fruit made a big difference in the taste, too. When it comes to berries, it’s good to use organic since so many pesticides are used on berries grown the conventional way.

Here’s the smoothie recipe…I hope you get a chance to try it out! It’s great for breakfast or anytime you’re wanting a healthy snack.

VERY BERRY SMOOTHIE by NancyCreative

  • 1 (10-ounce) package (or about 2 1/2 cups) frozen blend of strawberries, blueberries, and blackberries
  • 1 medium banana
  • 1 cup vanilla yogurt
  • 1 to 2 Tablespoons honey
  • 1/4 cup low-fat milk

Combine all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Since this is a thicker smoothie, you may need to stop the blender and stir the mixture with a spoon or spatula to help it along. Then continue blending. Makes 2 servings.
