Here is my recipe for a Mixted berry smoothie. The end of summer often means returning to routine, but it also brings the harvest of wild blueberries, a small fruit with many benefits that are great to have in your kitchen. With its bluish-purple color, this berry adds color to many recipes while also having positive effects on our health.
Tips & Tricks for the Best Mixed Berry Smoothies
Something that many people struggle with is making a smoothie like the ones we have at smoothie places! The secret to a successful smoothie is using the right ingredients. The key to a thick and creamy smoothie is frozen bananas! Make sure your bananas are ripe – no green… with lots of brown spots all over! Freeze them in an airtight container – (can be stored in the freezer for weeks and weeks!).
