With the turn of yet another year, it is now time for those “New Years Resolutions”… I’ve never been one to set concrete resolutions. In 2016, want to really work on this site, create and experiment with recipes, craft and create more and be overall happier and healthier. Not super concrete resolutions or goals, maybe a goal should be to set more concrete and measurable goals?
After New Years celebrations, I neeeeeeeeeeeed some nutrition and vitamins in my body. For a quick, easy fix- I made this very berry smoothie. This is one of my favorite smoothie combinations. I love smoothies any day any time. One of my “resolutions” is to post more smoothie recipes, it is such an easy way to get in some fruit and veggie servings.
In my smoothies, I like to add in Chia Seeds or Ground Flaxseed. I also always, always, always add at least 2 handfuls of spinach. Spinach is tasteless, yet packed with vitamins and nutrients. Anything I can add it to, I do.
I used vanilla Greek yogurt in this smoothie, which I really like vanilla Greek yogurt when making smoothies. The only downside of including Greek yogurt, especially flavored, is the amount of sugar. If you are watching your sugar, then I would either omit the the Greek yogurt, or really read the labels and do some research on which Greek yogurts have the lowest sugar content. But watch out for those artifical sweetners (if you’re into that kinda thing, if not- have at it!!!)
Here’s what you need to make this Very Berry Smoothie!
