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