Smoothie Saturday: Berry Blue Smoothie


We’re kicking off our Smoothie Saturday series with this beautiful Berry Blue Smoothie. While fresh blueberries are always available, it’s great to keep some frozen ones on hand so you can grab them at a moment’s notice. Blending an acidic fruit juice (like orange, apple or pineapple) with blueberries creates a bright, deep and vibrant color – and not to mention, a delicious drink!

Berry Blue Smoothie2 cups fresh or slightly thawed frozen blueberries
1 6-ounce container lowfat vanilla or other flavored yogurt
1 cup fruit juice, such as orange, pineapple or apple
1 tablespoon honey or sugar, more or less to taste

In the container of an electric blender, place blueberries, yogurt, juice and honey. Whirl until smooth. Serve immediately
