Apple-Berry Smoothie Recipe

Apple-Berry Smoothie Recipe

Apples and berries taste great together, especially in a smoothie. A lot of our readers have been asking for smoothie recipes that do not have banana, so here’s a good one. The most predominate flavors are blueberry and strawberry with just a hint of apple.

Blueberries are an excellent source of antioxidants and apples helps facilitate detox as well as adding lots of fiber. This smoothie has 49% of your daily recommended value of fiber.

You can use frozen strawberries OR blueberries which will chill this smoothie nicely for a hot day. I wouldn’t recommend using both frozen strawberries and blueberries because you’ll end up with a frozen mess in your blender!

If apples are not in season, try making this recipe with peaches or nectarines (use one large or two medium). Of course, banana thickens and adds a nice texture as well.

Apple-Berry Smoothie Recipe

  • 1 cup blueberries (frozen or fresh)
  • 1 large apple, cored
  • 2 cups spinach or other leafy green
  • 10 medium strawberries (fresh or frozen)
  • 8 ounces unsweetened almond milk

Directions: Start by adding the liquid to your blender (see my blender recommendations), followed by the soft fruit. Add the greens to your blender last. Blend on high for 30 seconds or until the smoothie is creamy.
