Kiwi Berry Smoothie

Have you ever seen fresh berries such as strawberries or blueberries on sale at a ridiculously low price but passed on buying them because the quantity was too large?

Or maybe you bought too many berries and just weren’t using them up fast enough?

A great idea when this happens is to freeze them.

Just rinse off the fresh berries (trim off the top of the strawberries and cut them in half), put them in a Ziploc Freezer Bag in portion sizes and store them in your “freezer pantry” for later use.  It works great.

In this recipe I used some frozen berries from my “freezer pantry” which is also a great way to add a nice chill to the smoothies.

Let’s check out the ingredients.

No need to thaw these strawberries; it’s best if they are still frozen.

The blueberries are also best if used right out of the “freezer pantry”.

Flax seed has fiber, antioxidants, and omega 3 fatty acids; and adds a nice subtle crunch to a smoothie.

Also, the honey tastes great with the yogurt and berries.

Here’s how to make it.

Depending on the size of your blender you may need to make one serving at a time by dividing each of the above ingredients in half

Add the strawberries to the blender.

Add the flax seed.

Add the honey; if you like your smoothies on the sweeter side you may want to add a bit more honey in each serving.

Add about ¼ cup of crushed ice to each serving if you would like more of a chill to your smoothie.

Add the blueberries.

Peel the kiwi fruit.

Cut the kiwi fruit into large pieces.

Add the kiwi fruit.

Add the yogurt.

Blend until smooth.

Serve immediately for a delicious and refreshing beverage.

Enjoy!
