Who doesn’t love berries? They’re delicious and have a huge amount of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. In fact, blueberries, have one of the highest antioxidant values of any food. If you care about your health, you should eat lots of berries and combining them into a smoothie is one way of accomplishing this.
I like to keep frozen blueberries and raspberries on hand in the freezer just for this purpose. Sure, I like to eat fresh berries too, but they don’t keep very long in the fridge (especially the raspberries) so I usually tend to eat them the day I buy them. Keeping frozen ones in the freezer allows you to have berries at the ready whenever you want them and you never have to worry about them going bad.
One of my favorite things to do with these frozen berries is to combine them with some coconut milk to make a smoothie. It’s easy and simple, you really don’t even need a recipe, but I’m going to include one below anyway. You could use any fruit really – in the grocery store they even have special mixes of frozen fruits just for smoothies.
I buy the coconut milk that is in the grocery section with soy milk. You could substitute soy milk, almond milk or regular milk or even juice for the liquid in this recipe.
I use the Vitamix to blend it all up, but a regular blender would work fine too.
