Creamy Banana Berry Smoothie

This creamy banana berry smoothie is delicious and oh-so refreshing! It’s easy to make and only needs a few ingredients. So I’d call this one a win!

You can also use either fresh or frozen fruit. I prefer frozen because it adds body to the smoothie. Plus you don’t have to wait for the fruit to be in season.

You’ll be amazed by how easy it is to get your children to consume vast amounts of nutrition. When you offer them one of these, they’ll happily accept it and drink it to the very last drop.

Flavor-Packed Fruit Smoothies

I’ve been making smoothies ever since I bought my first blender, which was many years ago. The fact that I could add something to wonderful to my diet appealed to me. There were even times when I substituted a smoothie for a meal.

I love the fact that you can toss a bunch of fruit, veggies, yogurt, and other ingredients into the blender and come out with something so good. If you want to add protein powder or another supplemental ingredient from the nutrition aisle at the store, that’s all the better.

Creamy Banana Berry Smoothie Ingredients

You only need 4 ingredients to make these delicious smoothies:

  • 1 cup yogurt
  • 1 medium size banana
  • 1 cup frozen mixed berries
  • 1 cup milk
Almond milk, vanilla yogurt, mixed berries, and a banana

You can use whatever type of milk you prefer. I happened to have almond milk on hand. So that’s what I used. In the past, I’ve used cow’s milk and coconut milk. They’re all good, so you can’t go wrong, regardless of which one you use.

How to Make Creamy Banana Berry Smoothies

It is so easy to make these smoothies you’ll think you’re doing something wrong. All you have to do is toss all of the ingredients into your blender.

Smoothie ingredients in the blender

Then turn it on and let the blender do the work. I started with it on the lowest setting and worked my way up to the highest. It took about a minute. If you want more than 2 smoothies, simply double the recipe … that is, if your blender is big enough. Or make them in batches.

Fruit Smoothies

On occasion, I’ll add something green, but that always dulls the bright colors of the berries. So I rarely do that if I’m making it for other people. Some smoothies have a bunch of ingredients. But this orange smoothie only requires 3 things … although you can add more.

If you want to enhance the orange color, you can add carrots to the blender. Or if you want it a deeper red-orange, toss in a couple of strawberries. One of the things I sometimes put in this is either vanilla-flavored protein powder or flavorless collagen powder.

Kid Friendly Smoothies

When your kids need a treat, make them a berry smoothie. They have the sweetness the kids crave, and they’ll give them the energy to do the things they love!

I made them for my daughters, and now my older daughter makes smoothies for her children. I’m happy to know she enjoyed it enough to continue with this healthy tradition.

Berry Smoothie Benefits

These smoothies have a variety of fruit in them, including a banana and mixed berries. According to Healthline, berries are packed with antioxidants, fiber, and many other nutrients that keep the body healthy and fight inflammation.

They also help to fight inflammation and may assist in lowering your cholesterol levels. Since berries are low in calories, they can be eaten while on most diets. According to the American Heart Association, a banana is an excellent source of potassium, a nutrient that is necessary to maintain a healthy heart. Bananas also aid in digestion, memory, and other body functions.
