Banana Berry Smoothie

Who doesn’t love a smoothie? They are insanely easy to make, (usually) a healthy meal choice, and really hard to mess up! Although, I say that now, and the next time I make a smoothly it’s going to end up awful. ;) How can you go wrong with berries and bananas, though? Add in some greens and a little coconut and you have the perfect breakfast.

I’m going to need to stock up on some healthy recipes for the rest of the week, because this Saturday may just be a disaster. Why, you ask? The 3rd Annual LA Vegan Beer Fest. I went last year and did a couple of posts on it, and had an amazing time; so, I am very excited for this weekend and look forward to hanging out with cool vegans/vegan enthusiasts/beer lovers. For me, it doesn’t get much better than that.

Back to the healthy part of this post, the recipe! Also, I’ve been inspired by a couple of other blogs (mostly Smitten Kitchen), and am going to start linking back to past recipes for each year; this is about to get embarrassing.

  1. Delicious!!! Once again, I wish we ad blackberries. Do you ever use Stevia in smoothies?

    • Jackie @ Vegan Yack Attack!

      Hi Maria! No, I don’t use stevia in my smoothies, mostly because I feel that the fruit is sweet enough. If I ever feel that I want it sweeter, I usually just add a couple of dates.

  2. Adding ginger and pineapple to a smoothie is delicious!
