Triple Berry Smoothie Recipe
My friend Kelly, at No Sugar Sweet Life, had kind of a brilliant idea: Reclaim the term “Thirsty Thursday” from drunken college boys by sharing healthy drink recipes.
This week I bring you an easy peasy smoothie recipe.
Which actually, would be much easier if my blender didn’t just break. I am going to pick up a new one, and unfortunately it’s not going to be a Vitamix. But it’s going to be something a bit nicer than what I broke!
chobani triple berry smoothie
- 1/4 c protein powder of choice (I used Fitmixer chocolate)
- 1/2 c frozen blueberries, raspberries or strawberries (I used blueberries)
- 1/2 c fresh strawberries, raspberries or blueberries (I used strawberries)
- 1 6 oz container raspberry, blueberry or strawberry Chobani (I used raspberry)
- 3-4 ice cubes
- 1/2 c almond milk
- Pour all ingredients into your blender.
- Blend. Add more liquid if too thick
- Optional: Pour into an adorable cup.
- Enjoy your delicious breakfast creation!
As you can tell, this recipe is pretty flexible. It’s a combo of fresh and frozen fruit with greek yogurt for maximum creaminess. I’d love to hear about new and interesting combo ideas.
My other friend Lauren is starting a new fitness initiative called the 20-minute yoga challenge.
So I’m going to try to commit to doing 20 minutes of yoga a day.
I say try because I do not do yoga. I can barely touch my toes, and that alone is reason enough to give this a try. I’m not going to be as extreme as she is and hop right into a wheel pose. I might start with a tree pose during a break at my desk (how do you know I’m not doing it RIGHT now?) I put a button on my sidebar to show my commitment and so you have a place to click later if you’d like to join.

I love it! And an adorable cup makes all the difference 🙂 That carebear one is too cute! As for yoga, I am so not a yogi. The “stretching” during the insanity workout series is about the most I’ve ever done. I feel like I will do pilates more when my goals move from weight-LOSS to toning/maintaining. I did a pregnancy pilates class when I was like 35 weeks pregnant…it was HIL-arious.

I totally need to do more yoga. Really just stretching in general…

No kidding. I need to stretch. Badly. So this is going to force me to do so.
Don’t you just love Kelly & her genius ideas? I love that care bear cup. And I love smoothie ideas because whenever I just wing it…. it turns out really weird.
I do love her! PS My sister’s name is also Coree (but spelled differently, as you may have noticed). She’s Coree Beth.
Also, mine sometimes turn out really weird. I was into making green smoothies for a while, and then I made one that looked EXACTLY like Nickelodeon green slime.

Awww, you two are too sweet 🙂

Mmmmm… I have some excess berries too. This looks fab!
You know I’m something of a smoothie whore. It’s becoming an addition. Tonight I made a chocolate version of my oatmeal cookie protein shake. For dinner. That’s acceptable, right?
