Mixed Berry Smoothie is an easy and healthy drink you can make for breakfast or as a snack. It’s quick to whip up and full of good-for-you ingredients! The sweet and delicious berry flavors make it perfectly kid-friendly, too.
If you’re following me on my Instagram stories, you’ll know that I’ve been teasing you with this recipe for days. Because I keep making it without sharing it 😉
But now I’m here, you’re here and, most importantly, the berry smoothie recipe is here, too.
Smoothies with berries are some of my favorite to make, like my strawberry banana smoothie and my raspberry mango smoothie. Probably because both of my kids love them and will drink them without arguing over it.
One of them because she genuinely likes the taste of it. The other one? Well… Because it’s pink. I’ll take it.
How to make a berry smoothie:
Ingredients for my mixed berry smoothie:
- Your preferred liquid
- Mixed frozen berries
- Greek yogurt (all-natural vanilla OR plain are both fine)
- Rolled oats (optional to make the smoothie more filling)
- A sweetener if you need it, we like honey
How to make a smoothie:
The best part of smoothie is how easy they are to make: Just throw everything into the blender and blend until smooth.
We got a Vitamix for our wedding a million years ago (OK it’s actually been five) and I LOVE it. No blender I ever had before was this good.
I have this one from Amazon and it makes the smoothest soups and smoothies. FYI, I make a commission for purchases made through this link.
Foolproof tips to make this the best berry smoothie recipe:
Make it ahead
For easy meal prep, you can make this smoothie ahead and keep it in the fridge for up to a few hours.
If it thickens too much because of the oats, just stir in a little extra juice!
Make it as sweet as you like
You can use plain Greek yogurt, but if you like your smoothies on the sweet side, it’s delicious with vanilla Greek yogurt, too.
You can also add more sweetener if you like! I usually do when I make it with plain yogurt, but not when I’m using vanilla yogurt.
Use your favorite liquid
I love both orange juice and pineapple juice in this berry smoothie. I know juice is controversial, but I refuse to believe a bit of juice will do any harm to me.
It’s my personal choice to use juice in smoothies, as it doesn’t affect my blood sugar in a negative way when I have it blended with other ingredients.
If you prefer not to use juice, just use water. You can also use 2 cups water and the whole segments of 2 oranges. Or 2 cups of water and 1/2 cup of pineapple chunks! Just know that water will make the smoothie less fruity and dilute the flavor a little.
If you’re going for juice, experiment and see whatever you like best. You’ll taste the fruit but it’s subtle. Orange makes it more tangy and fresh and pineapple sweet and mild with a tropical kick.
I hope you’re glad I’m finally spilling the beans on our favorite mixed berry smoothie. I know I’m glad to finally be crossing it off my to-do list 😉
P.S: Who wore it better? 😉
