Recipe – Banana Berry Blast Smoothie

Fruit smoothie in a glass with berries and a banana on a table surrounding it

This simple and healthy smoothie is naturally sweetened with fruit, so there is no need for added sugar. It also counts toward your daily servings of two food groups from Canada’s Food Guide (Vegetables and Fruit, and Milk and Alternatives). Thanks to our partners at Alberta Health Services for providing this delicious recipe.

Ingredients for 3 servings

  • 1/2 cup frozen unsweetened berries (blueberries, strawberries, Saskatoons, etc.)
  • 1 medium banana
  • 1/2 cup low-fat plain yogurt
  • 1/2 cup low-fat milk

Directions

Note: Customize your smoothie. For an extra-thick smoothie, add a handful of ice to the blender. For a thinner smoothie, add a splash of water.

  1. Place all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth
  2. Pour into glasses and enjoy!
