Next up in the smoothie series is our awesome Mixed Fruit smoothie. This has natural sugars only from the berries and it makes it just so delicious.
Once again we are using frozen mixed berries, canned crushed pineapple with fresh banana. We stuck with almond milk again, and of course our favorite vanilla Greek yogurt. We added some milled flaxseed to this to add even more protein.
We make two to four servings of this smoothie at a time and it keeps well in the refrigerator for a few days. This is an ultimate favorite for the kiddo in the house. His favorite addition to breakfast or his after school snack.
Since I talked about the benefits of creating our own smoothies vs. store brand powder shakes last week, I will just get down to this delicious recipe for this week. Enjoy!

- ½ c vanilla greek yogurt
- 1 c mixed frozen berries

- ½ c crushed pineapple
- 2 tbsp milled flaxseed
