Berrylicious Smoothie

One of the best things about living on the West Coast is berry season. Every year, I look forward to filling buckets with local berries and freezing them for the winter months. I like strawberries and raspberries in combination, but you could use just one berry or substitute any of your other favourites—blueberries, blackberries, huckleberries, Saskatoon berries . . . try them all! (If you’re using fresh berries, throw in a few ice cubes to increase the thickness.) This smoothie comes together in just a few minutes, so it’s perfect when you need breakfast in a hurry or a mid-afternoon pick-me-up.

"The berries in this smoothie are packed with antioxidants, and the protein and fiber will keep you satisfied until lunchtime!" -Erika Weissenborn B.Sc. FNH, CHN
