This mixed berry smoothie is simply frozen berries, banana, vanilla Greek yogurt, liquid of your choice, and sweetener if you desire. If you buy bags of mixed frozen berries and always have a few in the freezer for when a smoothie craving strikes, this is highly recommended. You can make these smoothies with apple juice as it eliminates the need to add any sweetener later on. Other liquid choices are skim milk, almond milk, coconut milk or even a cranberry juice would be nice.
