Brittany Banks is a young woman who likes to experiment with food. She gets bored of always eating the same meals.

Some people don't have the best blender in the world. Using ice can mess up your blender blades unless you have a blender that is top quality. Using the same ingredients for a smoothie can get boring after awhile. This fruit smoothie is healthy for you and is easy to make. It is packed with berries and the antioxidants in them that are healthy for the body as well as bananas, a great source of potassium. Smoothies are a great way to keep you energized though out the day. Having one in the morning is great, but you can also have one for lunch. They are great to have on a hot day as well.

Fruit can go bad easily in the fridge and quickly. A good way to make your fruit last longer is to prepare it, put it in bags, and place it in the freezer. Frozen fruit will also make your drink more cooler.

Prep time: 5 min
Cook time: 5 min
Ready in: 10 min
Yields: Serves one person 24 ounces


  • 1 cup Vanilla Greek Yogurt
  • 1 cup Pomegranate Cranberry Juice
  • 10 Blackberries
  • 10 Raspberries
  • 10 Strawberries, Sliced
  • 1 Banana, Sliced & Peeled


  1. Slice and prepare your bananas and strawberries.
  2. Add blackberries, raspberries, strawberries, and the banana to your blender.
  3. Slowly pour the vanilla yogurt and juice into the blender.
  4. Blend well and serve.

Yogurt Choices

Yogurt has probiotics in it that is great for digestive health. Greek yogurt is healthier for you than regular yogurt. If you don't like the taste of Greek yogurt, you can use low-fat yogurt. Using vanilla flavor, tastes a lot better in my opinion. Strawberry flavored also tastes good. Personally, I have never liked the taste of plain yogurt.

Juice Alternatives

I decided to use pomegranate cranberry juice, because I believe it tastes better. Orange juice is a common juice to use in smoothies as well. Strawberry kiwi juice is another good one to try. If you like cranberries, try regular cranberry juice.

      I'm one of those people who actually likes unsweetened cranberry juice, so I'll definitely try this. Although, I do like pomegranate too... Decisions, decisions!
