Triple Berry Smoothie


clean, low fat, healthy breakfast shake


For a healthy breakfast to go, made with clean, wholesome ingredients, try this berry smoothie made with strawberries, raspberries AND blackberries blended with yogurt and ice. I'm a berry lover, so the fact that they are good for you is an added bonus.

Freeze it in the summer for an awesome frozen berry pop your kids will love!

Low in calories, rich in vitamin C and loaded with cancer preventing flavonoids and phytochemicals. Drink up!!

    1. Do you have any suggestions for other yogurts to add? I don't like the WW yogurt because it has sucralose (Splenda).

      1. Why don't you try Greek Yogurt and sweeten it with stevia? The high protein in the yogurt will sustain you much longer!

      2. I use a cup of strawberry, blueberry, raspberry mix, 1/2 cup rolled whole oats, 1 cup Fage greek yoguart, 1 T olive oil and 1 cup water. Makes a wonderful shake under 400 Cals to start your day. I quit using any sweetener because it just didn't taste good that sweet.

    2. You could use whatever fat free yogurt you prefer. Just check the points!

    4. Activia Light is 1 point, so that's a great choice. Regular Activia is 2 points.

    16. can you use frozen berries for this and not use the ice?

    17. At our WW meeting we were told that blended fruit is no longer 0 pts in the new program. What do you know about this and does your recipes reflect this. The difference has something to do with the fiber component. Anyways I really your website, it's awesome and I can't wait to try more.

    19. This smoothie is awesome, I added 2 handfuls of Blueberries and a little bit of sugar(not a big fan of super tartness)

    21. I always count the fruit in my recipes, they are not free. Only if eaten alone.

      1. Is that a points plus thing? How would the calories or fat increase just by including fruit in a recipe?

        Delete
    22. Looks yummy! To really prevent cancer, it would be healthier if you replaced the yogurt with coconut milk. Add a banana for a smoother texture. Look up casein and you'll see that dairy is actually very bad for us.

    23. Thanks for posting such wonderful recipes. I made something similar to this, but added 2 handfuls of baby spinach. Even my picky DH, he won't eat anything green or veggies lol, drank it and said he'd drink it again!

    24. I would love some recipes to be both ww friendly and cancer preventative for those of us at high risk. :O)

    27. i just made this for breakfast and absolutely loved it. Who knew something so simple can be so delicious! I just started making your recipes and they are great! I hope I lose weight soon. Quick question though, when you write the calories down payment it per serving or for the whole recipe (in this case the 2 servings for the triple berry smoothie). Thanks for all these wonderful recipes, my husband and I really enjoy them.

    28. This looks great! If i use frozen fruit, would I still use ice cubes?

      ReplyDelete
    29. The smoothie was a little too tart for my taste, so I added a banana and 1 cup of spinach, because why not? You can't taste it anyway. And it was awesome... took the tart taste away just enough.

    30. The recipe calls for 1/2 cup blackberries and raspberries. Is the 1/2 cup amount of fruit the total amount of fruit or is it a 1/2 cup raspberries and a 1/2 cup blackberries making the total fruit amount 1 cup?
