Bad Boys Smoothie

This stimulating blend of boysenberries and blueberries is a salute to the baddest of all the boys. This smoothie's rich, creamy, magenta appearance reflects its intense berry flavor.

Adapted from "Smoothies: 50 Recipes for High-Energy Refreshment" by Mary Corpening Barber, Sara Corpening, and Lori Lyn Narlock.

Ingredients

  • 1 ½ cups low-fat boysenberry yogurt
  • ¾ cup passion fruit sorbet
  • 1 cup fresh boysenberries, frozen
  • 1 cup fresh blueberries, frozen

Directions

Combine the yogurt and sorbet in a blender. Add the boysenberries and blueberries. Blend until smooth and strain through a sieve.

Smoothie Shopping Tip

Buying fruits in season when they are at the peak of their freshness make for great tasting food and can save you money.

Smoothie Cooking Tip

Don’t throw out your overripe fruit – instead blend into a smoothie or salad dressing, add to muffin batter, bake into a cobbler, or boil down with sugar and a little lemon juice to make jam.
