Banana Berry Smoothie Recipes - 
all your favourite berries

We all know that bananas and berries create particularly yummy smoothies, after all strawberry and blueberry banana smoothies are famously popular.  So, I thought, why not create banana berry smoothie recipes using a variety of mixed berries.  

The berries add the sweetness and the bananas the creaminess – a marriage made in heaven.

You can experiment with lots of different flavour combinations.  Ready frozen bags of mixed berries, which usually contain strawberries, blackberries, blueberries and raspberries, make it very easy.  Use this as a base then just add whatever else you fancy to add more sweetness or creaminess to your smoothie.

Remember, strawberries and raspberries are very sweet, so adding extra will give you that sweetness without the need for sugar or honey.    You can go the traditional route and add yogurt for added creaminess, or you can make it dairy free by adding fruit juice, such as apple juice.

All are equally delicious.
