Banana-Berry Yogurt

Here is another delicious and quick breakfast recipe. It’s one of my favourites because it’s so tasty. Mommy likes it because it’s packed full of nutrients. The berries offer a good deal of antioxidants and the Greek yogurt provides much-needed protein.

This puree of berry goodness takes only minutes to prepare. It doesn’t even require any cooking time. It’s ideal for busy mornings when time is limited and perfect for quick and tasty snacks. Try this recipe the next time that you’re low on time but unwilling to compromise on nutrition.

Ingredients:

4 ripe bananas

3/4 cup raspberries

3/4 cup blueberries

1 cup Greek yogurt

Organic banana, raspberry, blueberry, and Greek yogurt

Pretty colours!

Preparation:

Berries are delicate fruits and are hard to wash thoroughly. We always soak ours in cool water for a few minutes and then give them a good rinse in running water. After a good washing, place the berries on some paper towel, gently roll them around to soak up the water, and set them aside for a couple of minutes.

Ripe bananas will work best because they add a good amount of sweetness and won’t cause constipation. Peel the bananas and remove the stringy fibres. We like to snip the ends off as well to remove the dark bits. Slice the bananas in approximately one inch pieces.

Place the berries in a blender and run on high-speed until the berries are completely liquefied. Reduce the speed to medium and begin adding the bananas a couple of pieces at a time. Finally, add the Greek yogurt and run the blender on high for a minute or two to make sure everything is thoroughly blended.

You can almost see the nutrients!

This recipe can easily be reduced for a smaller batch. One banana, a handful of berries, and a few spoonfuls of yogurt would make only a meal or two. We prefer making larger batches and freezing meal sized portions for convenience. This puree will keep in the fridge for a day or two.
