Berries, which often grow wild in fields or even road sides, are a great source of vitamin C and fiber.

Remember that if you’re picking your own berries, be sure to pick those which haven’t been sprayed with herbicides.

Very Berry Smoothie Recipe

This is a fairly thin smoothie that’s very refreshing. If you do prefer a thicker smoothie try adding a scoop of ice cream to the blender. I’ve given the honey to taste depending on the sweetness of the orange and strawberries.

  • 3/4 cup blueberry and cranberry juice or just blueberry juice (try ocean spray)
  • 1 orange (peeled and chopped)
  • 1 cup strawberries chopped and hulled
  • 3 tablespoons natural low fat yogurt
  • A few fresh blueberries for decoration
  • Honey to taste
