Red berry smoothie aka the lazy breakfast. Throw few things into blender lazy breakfast. The most difficult part is to peel the banana. That’s the level of difficulty we are dealing with here. I think that can be managed even on the most challenging morning.
The smoothie is fresh and not too sweet. Few dates can be added to amp the sweetness but for me, the slight sourness from the yogurt and berries in of this smoothie is one it benefits. It’s cool, refreshing and utterly delicious.
I always use frozen berries for this smoothie. That’s the whole point. No washing or chopping. Not that that’s difficult or time-consuming. It takes only a few minutes to throw any smoothie together regardless of the ingredients. But red berry smoothie is the definition of no time at all to make. It’s the holy grail of breakfasts. When you make this smoothie few times you will know how much of what is needed to make the perfect, to your liking smoothie. You will be able to make it with your eyes closed. No measuring cups, no scales, no knives and chopping boards. Just you, the blender and eeeer well, the spoon. I forgot you will need a spoon for the yogurt. I like the thick greek kind that can’t be poured in and I recommend you use it as well. Greek yogurt adds incredible creaminess to the smoothie. But I think we can cope with the spoon. It’ still manageable with the spoon. And if you like this smoothie to be rich and thick than the spoon will definitely be handy to eat the smoothie with. I do that sometimes. It’s more of a smoothie bowl than a smoothie but works either way.
Use whatever berries you like and you can get your hands on. The blend I’m using have strawberries, cherries, blackberries, raspberries, red berries. Any blend will do. You can always create a blend you like from fresh fruit and freeze them in portions. It’s all down to what you like. Make the smoothie your own.
