Berry Blast Smoothie

Are there any momma’s looking to fill their kids with a healthy balanced diet? I recently went to the doctor for Karlie’s 12-month check up and our pediatrician recommended that we start introducing smoothies into Karlie’s diet. After doing some research, I have found some fun smoothie ideas that I tweaked to help sneak some additional items I wanted in my growing toddlers belly that she wouldn’t normally eat. My Berry Blast Smoothie is a yummy option for breakfast and takes very little preparation.

Berry Blast Smoothie (Serves 15oz)


½ cup of blueberries and raspberries mixed

1 cup of strawberries

1 banana

1 container of Siggi’s vanilla yogurt (OR 1 cup yogurt of your choice)

½ cup of ice

1 tablespoon of flaxseed



  1. Combine all ingredients in blender.


  1. Blend until you reach desired constancy.


  1. Pour and serve for your littles to enjoy!


Fun Facts:

I choose to introduce flaxseeds in my smoothies because they are a rich source of protein and fiber and help with some digestion issues Karlie has been having. They also are proven to help improve brain and eye development.

I included blueberries, raspberries and strawberries because they all have high levels of antioxidants and are good for boosting those immune systems to prevent sickness during the flu season.

I threw in a banana because they are rich in fiber and are an excellent source of potassium and magnesium, which can help maintain a healthy heart rate.

I put in some yogurt because it is loaded with protein and boosts immunity and digestion.
