Very Berry Smoothies Recipe

Very Berry Smoothies Recipe – Rich in flavor and loaded with vitamins, this restorative drink could be “brunch on the run”. If calories matter, substitute nonfat yogurt and a sugar substitute for the honey. If you like, use 4 perfect blackberries in place of the strawberries for garnish.

The secret to a thick and frosty smoothie is to use nearly frozen fruits and juice.
