Veggie Berry Smoothie

A cinch to throw together.

2-veggie-berry-smoothie

When berries are in season and especially when they’re on sale it’s the perfect time to take advantage of the low prices and stock up.  But let’s face it, you can only eat so many berries before they start to go bad.

If you have to throw them away then there goes all your savings, and it’s a shame to waste them.   A great place to store extra berries is in the freezer.

Just put them in Ziploc bags and freeze the extra berries for use in smoothies, desserts, sauces, or for baking, toppings and jams.

I like to use the quart size Ziploc bags so that I can fit them in the nooks and crannies of my freezer since it’s always stuffed to the brim with other sale items.

Then for a quick and easy breakfast, snack or even dessert, grab one of the bags of frozen berries and add them to the blender along with other delicious ingredients and just like that, you have a smoothie for breakfast that you can sip on the go.

While adding the smoothie ingredients in the blender why not sneak in some veggies.  Raw veggies for breakfast?  Yes, your taste buds will never know the difference because when blended, this veggie berry smoothie is really really good.

Let’s check out the ingredients.
