Berry Smoothie

Always looking for nutritious snacks that only need a few steps, and this is just one of those recipes!  You can make this ultra-healthy or ultra-decadent.  Use Greek Yoghurt 0%, natural sweeteners like juice, and fresh fruit; or, use Vanilla Greek Yoghurt and add a 1/4 cup of heavy whipping cream for a dessert-like version--you choose.

I am featuring a compromise of the two option.  Check it out!

Blender, ie Magic Bullet / Nutri-Bullet / Ninja Blender / Waring 
(Nutri-Bullet is highly recommended for its' versatility & easy clean-up.
Measuring Cups

1 1/2 cups Greek Yoghurt (0%, 2%, Vanilla, Fruit-flavors)
1/4 cup orange juice
1/4 cup pomegranate / cranberry juice
1/4 cup water
1/3 cup frozen blueberries
1/3 cup frozen raspberries or blackberries
1/2 cup frozen strawberries (approx 5 strawberries)
1/3 frozen banana, (approx 4-5 1/4" slices)
2 tsp honey or agave syrup 

1. Begin filling the blender cup with yoghurt, juices, water.
2. Add your frozen fruits and sweetener.
3. If you want the decadence, add the whipping cream in place of water.
