Heart Smoothie

This fruit smoothie would be perfect for Valentine’s Day breakfast, or with dinner, or as a dessert. It’s pretty and purpley-pinkish (made up word) and there are no added, refined sugars which is always a plus in my book! Smoothies are quick and easy which I love and they’re always a kid-favorite. This recipe calls for frozen mixed berries and frozen strawberries, but you can make this smoothie with just one type and it’ll still taste great. And actually, if you want it more pink colored and less purpley, you can substitute more strawberries for the mixed berries.

THE RECIPE:

Heart Smoothie

1 c unsweetened almond milk (or other milk)
1/2 c plain yogurt
1 small ripe banana
1 1/4 c frozen mixed berries
3-4 frozen whole strawberries
2 Tbsp agave or pure maple syrup
optional: 1/2 tsp vanilla

Add ingredients to blender, in order, and blend until smooth. Add more milk if too thick. Add more ice/frozen fruit if too thin. Can garnish with fresh strawberry. Serve immediately or refrigerate in glass jar with lid and shake well before serving.
