Ingredients

  • 2 ½ cups fat-free vanilla yogurt
  • 1 cup blueberries, rinsed and drained
  • ½ cup raspberries, rinsed and drained
  • ½ cup blackberries, rinsed and drained
  • 2 tablespoons ground flax seed (a great source of fiber!)
  • Optional: 2 tablespoons honey for a sweeter smoothie; 1 medium banana for a thicker smoothie (a good idea if you use milk in place of yogurt)

Directions

Put all ingredients in the blender. Mix on high speed until smooth, about one minute. Pour and serve.

Variations: Use any combination of berries. You can use frozen berries if you prefer. To reduce calories, use fat-free plain, unsweetened yogurt.
