Tickle Your Taste Buds with Berry Smoothie Recipes

Berries are special fruits, containing vitamins C and E, that we should all integrate into our daily life. They are tasty but low on the glycemic index.

With all those pretty colors they are "good looking" and also have some of the highest antioxidant levels of any fresh fruits. With their high levels of phytochemicals — those naturally occurring nutrients that help protect cells from damage.

They are said to help with memory improvement as well as Parkinson’s disease and Alzheimer’s prevention when consumed regularly. They help manage diabetes, high blood pressure and boost heart health. With their fiber and liquid content they are a great source for weigh control. Flavonoids and other compounds found in berries may help reduce colon cancer risk. They are also closely associated with urinary track health.

These benefits are just to name a few. Of course when they are consumed fresh they are more nutritious and ​healthy for our body. Incorporating them into smoothies is another flavorful way to consume them.

Elegant Strawberry Smoothie

• One cup of crushed ice or ice cubes
• Two tablespoons of organic honey
• Half cup of skim milk
• Half cup of yogurt (strawberry flavored-optional)
• One and a half cups of frozen strawberries • One large banana


  • To begin this recipe, slice the strawberries into one-inch pieces, and freeze them for a few hours.
  • When the strawberries are frosty, and you are ready to start on your smoothie, slice the banana into small pieces as well.
  • Add the solid ingredients of the recipe first (one cup of crushed ice, sliced banana, and sliced, frozen strawberries). After combining the solid ingredients, spoon two tablespoons of organic honey on top. Pour in half a cup of skim milk and a half a cup of strawberry-flavored yogurt or vanilla-flavored yogurt (if you can’t find a strawberry-flavored one).
  • Set your food processor to its highest setting, and then puree your ingredients for three to four minutes. After a minute, you should be able to see all your ingredients are being blended nicely and, after four minutes, your Elegant Strawberry Smoothie will be ready to serve.
  • Feel free to sprinkle a little bit of cinnamon on top after pouring. The cinnamon will add more depth to the flavor. Serve and enjoy your Elegant Strawberry Smoothie!
