Berry Berry Good Smoothie ingredients

Berry Berry Good Smoothie

First, lets define what is a smoothie? According to Wikipedia, a smoothie consists of raw fruits and vegetables with dietary fiber (skin, seeds, pulp, etc) and are thicker than fruit juice. Other common ingredients can include Dairy (milk, yogurt, or ice cream) or Sweeteners (honey or sugar). It all depends on personal preference. Therefore, there is no “bad” smoothie.

Smoothies can be a good way to get a healthy breakfast with few ingredients and a few pulses from a blender. I modified a version of this recipe from a class I took in Cardiac Rehab. I don’t know who created the original recipe, but it is a good one. In addition to the healthy benefits of the mixed berries, banana, and spinach in this smoothie, you can also boost the protein by using reduced fat, high protein milk.
