What to do when you want something a little sweeter than a green smoothie, but don’t want a full-on dessert-level banana peanut butter situation? You whip up one of these tasty berry smoothie recipes, of course! In my humble opinion, berry smoothies are the most underrated of all—a true shame, considering how versatile they are. Pair strawberries with beets, and boom! A delicious immunity smoothie. Couple blueberries and chocolate, and voila! The sweet snack of your afternoon delight dreams. When it comes to creating incredible berry smoothie recipes, in the words of Cady Heron, the limit simply does not exist.
Still, I don’t blame you if you need a little guidance. Some people can throw any combo of ingredients into their blender and end up with professional-level smoothie results. Me? I need to follow a step-by-step recipe. There’s no shame in my blending game, though! I have a ton of favorite berry smoothie recipes I can turn to when the time comes to whip up a treat or two.
Whether you’re in the mood for a berry turmeric blend, a blueberry, banana and almond butter concoction, or a sweet, simple berries and cream, I can pretty much guarantee there’s a smoothie in this lineup you’ll love. In fact, allow me to present you with a challenge: find one smoothie that’s right up your alley; make it and enjoy it. Then, pick the smoothie on this list you think you’d like the least—whip it up and see if you don’t end up falling in love. Spoiler alert, you will! That’s how *berry* good these recipes are.
