Mary Berry Smoothie

M L Recipe

By M L mcmaven

This is my go-to breakfast. I like using blueberries and strawberries, but any combination of frozen fruit - except peaches - seems to work well.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
I don't know about you, but I like to enjoy smoothies in the morning as I get my day going in the Test Kitchen!  And this recipe from Mary is a really good one - The flavors are a great mix.  In fact, it was so good I had to fix another one the next day!

    Love this smoothie!
    As I'm bleary-eyed in the mornings, I measure out the milk and yogurt and put in a single container in the fridge. I put everything else into the blender container and put it in the freezer. In the morning, I just have to combine the two before I push start. What's easier?
    Oh, I add flaxseed to it, too. It doesn't affect the taste but makes it even healthier (if that's possible!).

    I am not a yogurt lover. Would sour cream make a good substitute or would that be too tart? Any other suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks! I love this website!
