I love whole fruit juices and smoothies. I also love that smoothies made with fruit don’t really need any additional / added sugar – because fruit is already so naturally sweet!

They are one of my favorite snacks, especially on a hot day.

Smoothies are also a great way to get your daily servings of fruits and vegetables – it’s like a little mini-meal when made correctly.

The thing to watch out for though, is that most smoothies that you’d get at a restaurant have tons of unhealthy sugary additives (like ice cream or frozen yogurt) – which you really don’t need to make smoothies taste good! I like making smoothies at home, because then I can control what’s in them.

And the great thing is, it’s super easy to make your own smoothies at home: all you need is a blender (or a hand blender), a few ingredients, and 5 minutes. You don’t even need a knife if you use frozen fruits – which is what this recipe calls for!

Here is a recipe for an easy mixed berry smoothie, and it’s really healthy too.

The Ingredients 

  • 1 cup Frozen Berry Medley (I use the one from Trader Joe’s that has Blueberries, Blackberries, Strawberries, and Raspberries), but you can also just use frozen Strawberries, frozen Blueberries, etc. – pretty much any combination of berries that you like.
  • 1/2 cup Unsweetened Vanilla SoyMilk: you can use any brand you like, but just make sure it’s unsweetened – and has only 0-1g sugar and 100 calories for 1 cup. For a creamier smoothie with more protein, use 1 cup soy milk.
  • Stevia or Agave sweetener, to taste (optional)

The Directions – there’s only one step!

Puree the berries and soy milk in a blender. You can also use a hand blender if you have one at home. Add Agave or Stevia to taste (once the smoothie has been prepared)

Note: If you don’t like Soy Milk, you can use 1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk (40 calories for 1 cup), or even regular 1% organic milk (100 calories for 1 cup). Using regular organic 1% milk makes this drink even sweeter and tastes just like a milkshake!

Nutritional Info

  • If you use 1/2 cup Almond Milk, this smoothie recipe has 125 calories, 5g fiber and 0.5g protein
  • If you use 1 cup Almond Milk, this smoothie recipe has 150 calories, 5g fiber and 1g protein
  • If you use 1/2 cup Soy Milk or 1/2 cup 1% milk, this smoothie recipe has 150 calories, 5g fiber and 4.5g protein.
  • If you use 1 cup Soy Milk or 1 cup 1% milk, this smoothie has 200 calories, 5g fiber and 9g protein.

The great thing about this recipe is: the entire cooking time is 5 minutes, but you end up with a delicious and super healthy smoothie which is a great option for breakfast or or a healthy snack. Hope you enjoy this delicious, cool, nutritious drink!

    • Awww I’m so happy you were able to make this smoothie Kayla! Thanks for letting me know – I’m glad you and your sister loved it! 🙂

    • Sure of course! Adding a frozen banana is great – if you can omit the molasses that would be even better since the banana will give you a lot of natural sweetness without having to add sugar (the way molasses would!) So glad you liked this recipe!
