The Smoothie Mix Up!

Smoothies are always a great way to treat yourself to a cool delicious treat.  Using fresh or frozen fruits, limiting juice and using water instead, and adding yogurt to create that creamy texture all tend to make this a nutritious snack filled with nutrients.  This weekend I was craving an ice cream, but as a healthier option I decided to make a cool delicious smoothie.  The only frozen berries I had were blueberries, but I had some watermelon and kiwi in my fridge that I had to use up.  So I threw everything together and made the most delicious smoothie – give it a try!

Ingredients

  • 1 cup of frozen blueberries
  • 1 kiwi
  • 2 slices of watermelon
  • Vanilla Greek yogurt or plain yogurt
  • Water (~1/2 cup or add until smooth)
  • Honey (if using plain yogurt)

Directions

Add all ingredients to blender or Magic Bullet (what I tend to use for single servings).  Blend until smooth.  Enjoy!
