Strawberry Blueberry Smoothie

Strawberry Blueberry Smoothie

In this world of candied ever’thangs, may I present: a delicious no-sugar-added strawberry blueberry smoothie.

No Sugar Added Strawberry Blueberry Smoothie

It’s as good as it looks.

Frosty. Thick. Tasty. Filled with nutrition. Fun!

Store-bought smoothie or homemade smoothie?

I prefer to control ingredients by making smoothies at home.

I want to know every detail of what I’m putting in my body.

Plus, if I’m going to drink my calories in smoothie form, I don’t want any extras, like sugar.

I’d rather save those calories for cake.

Glorious cake!

Life is all about choices, right?

I’m also not a fan of ingredients I can’t spell or recognize as actual food.

So, nope, you won’t find me in line to buy a smoothie.

(Full Disclosure: I throw out all these rules for milkshakes. I consider milkshakes liquid cake. Glorious cake!)

How to decide?

So, what’s a smoothie-loving gal to do?

Make my own, that’s what.

As I have declared before, I truly, dearly, whole-heartedly dislike ice in my smoothie.

I get enough quality H2o during the day.

I prefer using frozen fruit as my vehicle to a thick delicious shake-like smoothie.

Did you know frozen fruit and vegetables retain nutrients better than fresh fruit?

DID YA?!

WebMD weighs in:

Nutritionally speaking, frozen veggies are similar to — and sometimes better than — fresh ones. This makes sense, considering that these veggies are usually flash-frozen (which suspends their “aging” and nutrient losses) immediately after being harvested. Frozen veggies were often picked in the peak of their season, too.

Learnin’, OMT-style! (it’s delicious AND interesting!)

If you took a peek into my freezer, you would find bags of frozen berries year-round.

My favorites are wild blueberries and strawberries.

Which of course, is why this delicious no-sugar-added strawberry blueberry smoothie exists!

You use what you have available, right?

Are blueberries and strawberries good together?

Yes and yes! 

They go together like cake and icing, like ice cream and sprinkles, like summer and swimming!

They are summer in a cup.

I think the absolute biggest tip I could give is to use wild blueberries in your smoothies.

Wild blueberries are sweeter and easier to blend.

None of that cultured blueberry flakiness.

This easy and deelish recipe requires three ingredients.

THREE!

That’s it!

A brilliantly colored smoothie that gives you four servings of fruit.

FOUR! BAM!

Nutrition’d! (yep, not a word.)

You could share this between two people (and thereby get two servings of fruit each), but I typically have the entire thing for lunch, after a long run.

If you’re like me, you usually have berries in your freezer.

Instant yum, whenever you need a milkshake-esque dream.

No ice.

No schlepping to the store for fresh fruit.

No running to the smoothie joint.

Not only is it nutritious and delicious, but it will leave you feeling like you’re KING/QUEEN OF THE WORLD for getting so many important repairy/buildy things into your body in one meal.

Effortlessly.

Just keep it coming through that fun straw.

Berry Smoothie with yogurt.

Lots of folks love making their blueberry berry smoothie with yogurt.

4-ingredient recipe!

I’d add a giant dollop or two to this strawberry and blueberry recipe, or to taste.

The yogurt will make for a more milkshake texture – which can make the difference between getting this amazing nutrition into kiddos!

Do you, Boo!

Strawberry Blueberry Banana Smoothie

Can you add a banana to this recipe?

SURE!

You can use frozen bananas or fresh – dealer’s choice.

Kiddos love bananas and a strawberry banana blueberry smoothie ups nutrition!

Win Win!

You can’t lose with this strawberry and blueberry smoothie.

Pure smoothie brilliance, with no added sugar or chemicals you can’t pronounce.

The best part is the whippersnappers among you will love it (most kidlets are suckers for a blueberry strawberry smoothie) and they don’t have to know about the adult things like vitamins and fiber and antioxidants.

No really, you don’t have to tell them.

I’m pretty sure if you did tell them, they’d squinch their noses at it and start begging for the leftover Easter candy you think you’ve hidden so well.

DON’T TELL THEM!

Strawberries and Blueberries!

That’s all you gotta say!

♫ Strawberries and blueberries ♫

Yum!

Happy smoothie making, my babies!

Directions:

  1. Place milk in blender.
  2. Add frozen fruit.
  3. Puree
  4. Pour into tall glass, insert straw and watch for freezer brain!

Notes:

If your blender struggles with frozen fruit, you can add small bits at a time – or – thaw fruit for a few minutes before adding to blender.

I prefer wild blueberries because of their sweetness.

Hard Crushing on Powerful Vitamix Blenders

A gentle reminder: OMT! uses Amazon referral links at no cost to you.~

Oh, mah babies. A powerful blender makes blending smoothies a dream.

Whether you get a profesh blender or a powerful other-name blender, just make sure you get one that can handle frozen fruit!

The following review is for a Vitamix, but I now have Blendtec (for full disclosure). I love them both. I would use either or – simply a personal preference (what do you use?).

There you are – doesn’t matter what you make (make ’em all!), just make one.
