Fruttare Very Berry Smoothie Recipe

“This shop is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group® and Fruttare, but all my opinions are my own. #itsallgood #pmedia http://my-disclosur.es/OBsstV”

With the warmer weather rapidly approaching, I'm looking for treat and meal options to cool me down. And if my kids will enjoy it with me, that's a bonus!

You all know my ongoing struggle with meal and snack ideas. I tend to fall back into the trap of packaged goods, which get old really fast. One thing I have always been a big fan of? Smoothies!! Seriously, who doesn't love a smoothie?? I've nailed down a few really awesome recipes, but recently tried something new and it turned out amazing!




For me, the best smoothies are packed with fruit, and aren't too thick. I need to be able to suck it through a straw, know what I'm saying?

I also prefer my fruit smoothies to contain fresh fruit, so that's what I blended with. However, frozen fruit would work as well! But I think what makes this smoothie different, is that it calls for Fruttare Fruit Bars. I added both the Strawberry + Milk and the Mixed Berry + Milk to the smoothie recipe. They are super creamy, and contain real fruit and milk so I think it was an awesome addition. They added that little extra something. And of course, we had some left over so we chowed down on them. ;-) I got my Fruttare Bars at Safeway, but they're sold in many different stores nationwide, so next time you're looking for a refreshing treat, or something to add to your smoothies... pick these up!




INGREDIENTS
  • 1 cup strawberries
  • 1/2 cup blueberries
  • 1/4 milk (if you prefer a thicker smoothie, leave this out)
  • 1/2 cup greek vanilla yogurt
  • 2 whole Fruttare Fruit Bars
    1 Strawberry & Milk
    1 Mixed Berry & Milk
DIRECTIONS
  • Combine all ingredients into your blender and blend until smooth and cream. Depending on how many strawberries & blueberries you used, the time of mixing my vary. As I mentioned above, if you prefer a thicker smoothie, don't blend as much and leave out the milk! But if you like a creamier smoothie that will come up well through a straw, you may want to add a little milk until you achieve the desired consistency. 
Serve immediately! This particular recipe should serve between 2-3 people.


Hope you enjoyed this recipe!! Let me know if you try it out, it's delicious!!
