Ingredients for this Berry Smoothie

Ingredients for berry smoothie with coconut water laid out on a counter before making it.

Coconut Water: We want this to be nice, light, and refreshing; so we use coconut water for this smoothie. If you want a creamier, more filling smoothie, then go for a coconut milk or another non-dairy milk for the smoothie, like this berry chia smoothie with hidden greens!

Vanilla: This can be omitted, but everything tastes better with a little vanilla.

Banana: Bananas help this smoothie blend nice and smooth. Without it the smoothie wouldn’t be much a smoothie, it would be more like a berry drink.

Strawberries: Use frozen, using frozen berries is what makes this smoothie cold and fruity-ful!

Blueberries: For best results, use frozen blueberries (they’re usually cheaper too).

How to Make Berry Smoothies

You stick everything in a blender and you blend until it’s smooth.

No, seriously, that’s all you do!

If you see another smoothie recipe and you have to do more than dump your ingredients in the blender and blend it, then they’re complicating the recipe too much – either that or it’s a specialty smoothie like my strawberry cheesecake smoothie.

How to Serve This Berry Smoothie Recipe

Serve cold, with maybe some coconut flakes on top to be fancy! (You can tell you’re a toddler mom when Fancy Nancy’s voice is stuck in your head when reading this.)

How to Store Smoothies

Fridge: Don’t. Just like I tell my kids, if the smoothie has a banana in it then you can’t save it in the fridge. You can dump it 🙁 or freeze it.

Freezer: The best way to freeze this smoothie, or any smoothie, is by freezing it in a popsicle mold. And then you’ll have berry popsicles!

FAQ’s to help you make this Berry Smoothies

  1. Should I use coconut water with or without pulp?
    1. Use the type of coconut water you prefer, or the kind that you can find. It doesn’t really matter which type you use, as the pulp will be blended in with the smoothie and you won’t even notice it when the smoothie is ready.
  2. Can I use fresh berries, or do they need to be frozen?
    1. It’s best to use frozen berries, using fresh berries will result in a thinner, less cold smoothie.
  3. Is vanilla optional?
    1. You can omit the vanilla if you don’t have it, it is in the recipe purely for enhancing the flavor. It’s not needed for the recipe to work.
  4. What blender do you recommend for this smoothie?
    1.   It’s recommended to use a high-speed blender for this recipe if you have one. If not, you may need to blend slightly longer than the recipe calls for to make sure all frozen fruit is blended well.
  5. Do I need to add ice to this smoothie?
    1. No, the frozen berries make it so you don’t need ice, and also makes it so the smoothie won’t taste watered down.
