Do you find it challenging to get in your recommended daily requirement of fruits and veggies EVERY. SINGLE. DAY.? I know I sure do! There's a lot of days I'm longing for a personal chef to chop up healthy fruits and vegetables, and serve me delicious colorful salads for lunch and dinner. Ha, probably not in this lifetime!
Well, I've found a pretty quick and delicious way to get in 2-3 servings of antioxidant rich fruits. 🙂
This 3 Berry Fruit Smoothie is one of the easiest breakfasts (or snacks) to make!
The preparation is super fast because I start with a frozen fruit mixture of 3 berries: blueberries, blackberries and raspberries.
For about a 16 ounce glass size smoothie, I use 3/4 cup of berries, and almost equal that amount of rice milk or almond milk. You can use whatever milk is your favorite.
I put the frozen berries in the blender, and add the milk a little at a time to see how much I need for a drinkable consistency. Now I usually don't add sweetener to mine, because I like it a bit tart, but you can add a tablespoon of honey if you prefer yours sweeter (just remember your littles can't have honey).
For a natural sweetener you could also add half of a ripe, chopped up frozen banana (you may need to add a bit more milk).

Isn't that so easy!? Give it a try and let me know what you think! 🙂
