Berry Smoothies for Breakfast anyone?

Berry smoothie in Vitamix

Berry smoothie in Vitamix

I usually write about recipes or restaurants that Veggie Hubby likes, but this week I decided to share a recipe I like. I spent the last year or so coming up with a smoothie I like with ingredients that work for me. I have one of these smoothies 2-3 times a week depending on my travel schedule. This recipe makes a big smoothie and could be shared, but I don’t share ūüôā ¬†In the picture below it more than fills the cup!

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup strawberries
  • 1/2 cup blueberries
  • 1/2 cup cherries
  • 1 cup almond milk (or milk of your choice)
  • 1/4 grape juice

Throw everything into a Vitamix for about 30 seconds and serve.

Yummy! Great Breakfast that lasts until lunch.  When berries are in season I buy fresh.  If not in season then I buy them from Costco.  Costco carries all 3 types of berries in an organic variety.  I usually take out the strawberries and blueberries before I work out and then put the cherries in frozen.  Sometimes I will replace the milk with greek yogurt. It mostly depends on my mood that day.  Below I included pictures of the different kinds of milk that I use for my smoothies.

Please share your smoothie recipes. ¬†I’m always looking for variations!
