Love how thick this frozen mixed berries smoothie is. When making smoothie frozen fruits works BEST. The texture of a good smoothie is thick and creamy and you easily achieve it with frozen fruits.
When plenty of fresh berries in season, you are naturally intended to buy them in bulk and freeze. Frozen berries are a way to extend summer a little longer.
If you love clean eating recipes for breakfast or snack this is for you! It’s so simple to make, refreshing and satisfying meal. The Greek yogurt in the smoothies makes it filling and satisfied. You wont reach out to that pantry for something more to pop into your mouth after the smoothie.
Best blender to use
Smoothie is all about blending frozen fruit. If you are a smoothie person you know very well that a good blender is very important to make good smooth creamy smoothie. Use powerful blender to get smooth texture.
DEFINITELY FROZEN! To help you achieve a thick, creamy consistency ALWAYS use frozen fruits/berries. Using fresh berries in this recipe will give you berry juice and not smoothie.
To any smoothie add some frozen bananas as well. It will help add the required sweetness. Banana also helps as thickening agent to the smoothie
Making protein rich smoothie
You can add protein powder to your smoothie to make it protein rich. After all you want to eat breakfast that is filling and satisfying. Protein helps you keep full until the next meal.
Adding extra kick of flavors to the smoothie makes it interesting. A spoonful of cocoa powder, cinnamon powder, nutmeg powder, vanilla extract.

I love how thick it is. Berries are my favorite. I think instead of a straw I would eat this with a spoon. It sure looks fantastic and refreshing!
