Smoothies really are the “it” thing now.  You can find them everywhere you go and made with all kinds of ingredients. The problem is, some of the ones you get at your favorite smoothie joint or restaurant, are nothing more than glorified milkshakes.

They’re loaded with sugar, fat and calories.  Not to mention, they can be crazy expensive.

I really like to make smoothies at home because I can control what goes into them.   And, they’re really quite affordable.  Plus, I can customize the ingredients so everyone gets what they want.

My favorite are these healthy Green Smoothies.  But, the fan-favorite in our house are these Triple Berry Smoothies.  I make them with Greek yogurt, flax seed and wheat germ to increase the good-for-you-ness.

I love to use Driscoll’s berries in my smoothies.  I know that I can always count on Driscoll’s for the best berries.

Driscoll’s is passionate about growing premium fresh berries.  And, they should know…their family farm has been growing them for over 100 years.

Driscoll’s berries are are sweet, juicy and naturally wholesome.  And, the best part is, they are readily available all year long at your grocery store.

My son loves to have smoothies for breakfast because he thinks he’s getting a treat.  But, they also make great snacks, too, like these Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Smoothies.  I like to make a big batch and freeze the leftovers for later.  Here’s a great post about the Best Way to Freeze Smoothies, too.
