What with all the healthy breakfast smoothie recipe choices we have here you would think that we have a breakfast smoothie every morning. But that is just not the case.

I get up much, much earlier than my partner and, if I serenaded her each morning with a blender mixing up smoothies, I wouldn’t have lasted as long as I have. So, a lot of mornings I have very quiet cereal with fruit. It doesn’t taste a good but it does allow for more sleep.

All this leads me to a new-ish healthy breakfast smoothie recipe I have tried and it is pretty darn good.

Should you and your partner rise together, or if your partner sleeps more soundly than mine, I think this is one you will very much enjoy.

In your favorite blender mix:

  • One Cup Raspberries (fresh or frozen)
  • 1/2 Mango, sliced
  • 3 sliced peaches
  • 1 cup vanilla Greek Yogurt
  • Ice to Taste

Well, yes, corn flakes can be used as a smoothie ingredient. In fact they are quite good. We haven’t tried all the potential permutations yet but this one is really, really good.

At its heart, this smoothie is a pretty traditional Raspberry smoothie. But! Adding flakes gives it a bit more body than you would think and adds a whole lot of fun as well.

In your favorite blender mix:

  • 1 cup milk (your choice, whole, soy, etc.)
  • 1/2 cup plain Greek yougart
  • 1/2 cup Raspberries (fresh or frozen)
  • 1/2 cup corn flakes
  • Sweetener to taste (honey, or whatever your favorite is)
  • After blending, serve in a glass with a bit more flakes on top. This is a pretty simple smoothie to make but delivers a lot of satisfaction and taste.

Fruit Fact: Raspberries are in the same family as the Rose which seems very fitting. Also, raspberries are really tasty and that fact is proved in the raspberry Greek yogurt smoothie below.

With just four ingredients, this shouldn’t take more than about five or six minutes to throw together. Great for a quick and healthy breakfast or anytime you want a little something until the next meal.

In your favorite blender mix:

  • 1 cup raspberries (fresh if available but frozen works too)
  • 3/4 cup plain Greek yogurt (this is one six ounce container if you have it)
  • 1 Tbsp. honey (about 65 calories, so not bad!)
  • Ice to taste, probably about a cup
  • 1 Tbsp Chia seed (Optional but a good choice)

Greek Yogurt Blackberry Smoothie: Easy To Make

Greek Yogurt Blackberry Smoothie; of course it will work with regular yogurt too but Greek yogurt gives the mix more body.

Ever wonder what the difference between “Greek” yogurt and regular yogurt is? Greek yogurt (also called strained yogurt, yogurt cheese, or “labneh” ) is simply yogurt that has been strained through a filter to remove the whey. The result is a yogurt that is creamier and not as sweet as regular yogurt with about half the sugar content.

Blackberries are not a true berry in the botanical sense. Technically it is classified as an aggregate fruit made up of druplets. Nutritionally speaking, blackberries offer a good way to get dietary fiber, vitamin C and vitamin K. And, as a bonus, they taste great too.

Enjoy both in this easy to make,Greek yogurt blackberry smoothie!

In your favorite blender mix:

  • half cup Greek Yogurt
  • half cup Blackberries (fresh or frozen)
  • 1 medium frozen banana (peel and slice before freezing)
  • 1 tbsp sweetener
  • 1 tbsp Chia seed(Optional)
  • Ice to taste
