Kiwi Berry Smoothie

This colorful smoothie is as delicious as it is pretty.

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?

No worries, all you have to do is freeze them and the frozen berries will be available at your fingertips for use later.

When freezing berries, if I’m in a hurry I just rinse the berries, and dry them off with a paper towel (for strawberries I’ll also trim off the stem and leaves and cut them in half) then put them in portion size zip-top freezer bags for later use.

But doing it this way can make the berries stick together and freeze into a block.

Which is okay if they’re frozen in portion size freezer bags, and they can be set out on the counter for a few minutes before adding them to the blender for a smoothie.

To freeze the berries properly there’s a few more steps.

Here are some tips on how to freeze berries so that they don’t turn into a block when frozen.

Preparation for freezing berries:

  1. Remove the leaves and, or stems
  2. Put the berries in a strainer or colander and rinse them in cool water
  3. Transfer the berries on to a paper-towel lined plate and let them completely air dry

To prevent the berries from freezing in a “solid block” form:

  1. Spread the berries out on a pan or plate that will fit in your freezer (i.e. a large plate, small pizza pan or smaller sized metal pan like a brownie pan).
  2. Place the berries in the freezer just long enough until they’re slightly frozen (about an hour).
  3. Then transfer them to a plastic Ziploc or zip-top bag.
  4. Squeeze out as much air as possible from the bag before tightly sealing it.
  5. Store in the freezer for up to 6 months.

Let’s check out the ingredients.

Kiwi Berry Smoothie Ingredients

Frozen or fresh strawberries and blueberries, kiwi fruit, plain yogurt, honey, flaxseed (optional)…and ice (if using frozen berries, a little liquid such as orange juice, almond milk or water may be required if the smoothie is too thick)

If using frozen berries, no need to thaw them…

…the colder the smoothie is the better.

Honey and Flax Seed in Dishes

Adding flax seed to the smoothie is optional.

It has fiber, antioxidants, and omega 3 fatty acids; and it also adds a nice subtle crunch to a smoothie.

Honey is used to sweeten the smoothie.

I especially like the natural flavor of honey with yogurt and berries

TIP – 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.
