I’m a fan of quick and healthy, and this Mixed Berry Yogurt Smoothie could not be simpler to prepare. With no kitchen equipment needed, you can stockpile your fridge for a week of breakfasts or have the perfect brunch starter, packed with protein and organic goodness. Best yet, if you are looking for a way to pack more fruits and veggies into your meals, you can do so in a burst of intense berry deliciousness. Who would guess these bottles of juice had 7 strawberries, 1/2 a kiwi, 1 1/2 bananas, the juice of 2 beets, 3/5 carrot and 1 1/6 of an apple? Or 25 blueberries, 23 blackberries,  1 1/16 bananas, the juice of 4 2/3 beets, 3/5 carrot and 2 3/4 apples? I enjoyed the rich vanilla flavor of the Stonyfield Smooth and Creamy French Vanilla yogurt, which provided a wonderfully creamy base for the the True Organic Juice.

Leave the juicer and the blender in the cabinet, grab a mason jar and let’s shake up your breakfast and brunch routine!

I enjoy writing about and participating in the food, wine and culinary scene in Central FL in my off hours. I started Orlando Uncorked, a local non profit wine education group, to promote the approachability of wine and donated our event proceeds to local area charities. The popular wine tasting events grew into structured wine classes and finally, food and wine writing for Orlando Home & Leisure Magazine and The Seminole Chronicle. Thanks for stopping by and if you'd like to join in on my fun, follow me on Twitter, Instagram, Untappd, Drync & Vivino @WineChix . Cheers!

    Our juices lasted 2 days. We couldn’t get enough of them. They would certainly make a great smoothie.
