My family loves smoothies for snacks and healthy breakfasts, and this berry smoothie is one of our all-time favorites! 

Berries are one of the best smoothie ingredients because they add fruity flavor, fiber and a beautiful color. This berry smoothie is made with three kinds of frozen berries, banana and Greek yogurt. The yogurt adds the perfect amount of creaminess to this sweet smoothie and really makes the berry flavor shine.

This healthy smoothie is one of our favorite berry smoothie recipes, along with this Strawberry Banana Smoothie, Blueberry Smoothie and Raspberry Peach Smoothie.

Berry Smoothie Ingredients

Ingredients for berry smoothie recipe.

  • Frozen Strawberries, Frozen Raspberries & Frozen Blueberries: This trio of berries makes the best mixed berry smoothie! If you only have two out of these three types of berries on hand, that will work, too. Using frozen berries thickens the smoothie.
  • Banana: The banana is needed to sweeten the smoothie. Be sure to use a ripe banana for maximum sweetness. If you want to make a smoothie with no banana, you may wish to add a tablespoon of pure maple syrup or honey to sweeten the smoothie.
  • Plain Greek Yogurt: I tested this smoothie with and without the yogurt and we much preferred this berry smoothie with a little Greek yogurt blended in. The yogurt makes it slightly creamy and helps the berries to blend up smoothly. It also adds a bit of protein to make the smoothie more filling.
  • Almond Milk: You’ll need some liquid to make the smoothie blend up smoothly. I usually use unsweetened almond milk. Feel free to use another nondairy milk, such as oat milk, or dairy milk, if you prefer.

How to Make a Berry Smoothie

This smoothie couldn’t be easier to make!

First, add all of the ingredients to a blender: the frozen berries, banana, Greek yogurt and your liquid of choice. I used unsweetened almond milk.

Then blend until smooth, starting with the blender on low speed and gradually increasing the speed to fully blend the smoothie. A high powered blender works best here because it will fully puree the raspberry seeds. Any blender will work, though!

If the smoothie is too thick, you can blend in a little more almond milk. Then serve and enjoy!

Recipe Variations

  • You can use a package of frozen mixed berries instead of the three individual berries listed in this recipe. Just be sure to use 2 cups of berries total.
  • Add some ground flax seed, chia seeds or hemp seeds for extra fiber and nutrients.
  • To make this berry smoothie more filling for breakfast, add 1/4 cup old fashioned rolled oats along with the other ingredients. Or try my Oatmeal Breakfast Smoothie recipe.
  • Add 1 tablespoon of almond butter or peanut butter for extra protein and healthy fats, to make the smoothie more filling.
  • Add fresh spinach to get in some healthy leafy greens. You won’t taste the spinach, but it will alter the color of the smoothie.
  • For a dairy free and plant based smoothie, substitute dairy free yogurt for the plain Greek yogurt.
