If your winter meals are starting to look a little beige, this vibrant berry smoothie is here to help. Grab some frozen berries, an orange, some Greek yogurt, and coconut water – let's make something delicious for breakfast.

This smoothie is easy to adjust based on your preferences. You can choose any type of berry for this smoothie, but I went with frozen strawberries, blackberries, raspberries, and blueberries. Like your smoothie a little less thick? Try adding some more coconut water.

Berry Smoothie

Serves 1

1/2 cup mixed frozen berries
1/3 cup Greek yogurt
1 orange, peeled and segmented
1 cup coconut water

Scoop the Greek yogurt into an ice cube tray (silicone is preferred), and put in the freezer. Freeze the berries and orange segments on a baking sheet for 1 hour (to avoid clumping and hurting your blender), and then put in container or bag with 4 yogurt cubes until ready to make your smoothie.

Dump the frozen berries, orange segments, and yogurt cubes into the blender, along with one cup of coconut water. Blend until desired consistency.
