Here's a quick look at what you need to put this smoothie together. Full measurements are listed in the printable recipe card at the bottom of this post...
- Mixed Berries
- Chia Seeds
Smoothies are versatile and allow you to "choose your own adventure" when it comes to exact ingredients. I've popped down a list of ingredient substitutions and suggestions that will guide you in your smoothie mixology and help you get a delicious smoothie in your hand ASAP.
Milk: Choose a milk you actually like. Lately I've been using soy milk for all my smoothies as I find it doesn't really change the taste of the smoothie at all.
Berries: I buy a frozen mixed berries mix from my local supermarket which includes strawberries, raspberries, blackberries and blueberries but if you don't have something similar simply use your favourite berry. I've made this with just strawberries and it was still amazing.
Chia Seeds: These are my go-to smoothie booster / add-in as they thicken up the consistency and don't taste like anything. Chia seeds are rich in fibre, omega-3 fatty acids and protein, as well as rich in minerals such as calcium and magnesium. BUT if you don't have them just omit them completely and add a little less milk in, or substitute for your favourite smoothie booster.
Yoghurt: I typically use either vanilla yoghurt or a slightly sweetened plain greek yoghurt in my smoothie recipes. If you are using an unsweetened plain greek yoghurt, you may wish to add a teaspoon or two of your favourite liquid sweetener. You could also use coconut yoghurt or omit yoghurt entirely.
Vegan / Dairy Free: Use your favourite non-dairy milk and use coconut yoghurt, or omit yoghurt entirely.
Fresh Vs Frozen: I love using frozen fruit and vegetables in my smoothie recipes, as I find they not only help keep the smoothie cool but also help to thicken it. I've added some info and tips for freezing your fruit and vegetables below, but if you only have fresh on hand this is absolutely fine to use.
- Put all ingredients in a high performance blender and blend until smooth.
- Serve and enjoy!
🍓 TOP TIP - FREEZE YOUR FRUIT
Freezing fruit and vegetables not only helps make your smoothies thicker and more creamy, but it's a bonus way to stop wasting fresh produce. I'm sure I'm not the only person who's guilty of throwing away unused, spoilt fruit and veg at the end of the week.
But that all stopped as soon as I realised I could freeze my favourites and use them whenever I liked. No more waiting for bananas to ripen, or wondering how to use that whole bunch of kale in a week.
I now have a freezer stocked with ready-to-go smoothie ingredients that I can use at any time.
Here's how to freeze some of my favourite smoothie ingredients:
- Remove the skin.
- Cut into slices and place on a plate or tray.
- Place plate / tray in the freezer for 1 hour until banana slices are solid.
- Place banana slices in an airtight container or freezer bag and store in the freezer for up to 3 months.
- Rinse the strawberries.
- Cut the stems and halve them.
- Place is airtight container or freezer bag and store in the freezer for up to 3 months.
Freezing Greens (Kale, Spinach, Rocket etc):
- Rinse the greens and remove as much water as possible (I use my salad spinner).
- Place in an airtight container or freezer bag and store in the freezer for up to 3 months.
Tip: Buy fresh produce when it is heavily discounted just days before it's expiration date! Freeze it straight away and it will be perfect for your smoothie!

Mixed Fruit Smoothie
A berry green smoothie that tastes delicious (yes, it is possible) and will get you well on your way to hitting your daily serves of fruit and veg!
- 250 ml / 1 cup milk
- 1 tablespoon vanilla yoghurt
- 1 handful spinach leaves
- 1 handful kale leaves
- ½ cup frozen mixed berries, strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, blackberries
- ½ frozen banana
- 1 teaspoon chia seeds
- Put all ingredients in a high performance blender and blend until smooth.
- Serve and enjoy!
- Milk - Pick any milk you enjoy. My favourite is soy.
- Berries - If you don't have a mixed berry blend, feel free to use just one berry. Blueberries, strawberries, raspberries etc will all work perfectly in this recipe.
- Chia Seeds - If you don't have chia seeds on hand feel free to omit and just add a little less milk, as chia seeds help to thicken the smoothie.
- Yoghurt - Vanilla Yoghurt or Greek Yoghurt work well. If your Greek Yoghurt is unsweetened, you may wish to add a teaspoon or two of liquid sweetener. You can also sub for coconut yoghurt, or omit entirely.
- To make Vegan / Dairy Free - Choose a dairy free milk and sub yoghurt for coconut yoghurt or omit entirely.
- Fresh vs Frozen - You can easily sub fresh fruit or veg into this recipe. I simply prefer frozen as it helps to make smoothies thicker and creamier.

Terri Beavers says
That is one colorful smoothie and it sounds amazing. I bet I could get the kids to drink this one. If it's green, they tend to shy away from it but yours is a pretty color.
Thanks so much Terri! Let me know if the kids drink it!
Thank you so much for this post!! Yes, smoothies tasting like a garden are what had turned me away from them. I love veggies...but the veggie smoothies! Ugh. Saving this to try it over the weekend!!
You'll have to let me know what you thought Kori!
Apolline Adiju says
i am sure this taste good. Any smoothie with banana and kala is always a favorite to me.
Banana's lend such a lovely sweetness to smoothies!
I love smoothies, they are so yummy and I love having them to keep me going
They are great for an energy boost!
This looks delicious and I love the emoji smiley face. My eight year old daughter might even give it a try with that cute presentation!
Haha smiley faces make everything brighter!
Renee @ The Good Hearted Woman says
"...unless your intention is to be so scared of the green smoothie you never venture towards it again..." Hahaha! I've always had kind of an aversion to green smoothies, mostly because every time I have a taste of a one from a friend, it's so green that I feel like I'm drinking the front lawn. Your advice to start small is probably a good plan.
Haha yep if you go to hard with the veggies at the start it's not going to end well!!
Blair villanueva says
It is surprising it wasn't green, and I was anticipated it is green. Thanks for sharing us your smoothie!
The berries give it the purple colour 🙂
Cassie Tucker says
Thanks for the tip of adding water when blending frozen ingredients! This is going to make my smoothie making so much easier.
Yeh without it sometimes it's too hard to blend!
Pooja Sharma says
I have been looking for a good smoothie recipe since a long time. I am glad that I came across. Hopefully it works for me!
Let me know how you go Pooja!
David Elliott says
This smoothie looks delicious and I am not even a big fan of chia seeds in my drinks. And even if the shake is green it doesn't look very green so much more tempting to try this.
I love the idea of including some chia seeds into it. Also the garnishing with a smiling design surely make kids want to try it.
Haha smiley face always!
Cindy Ingalls says
I too like milkshakes & haven't quite gotten too into green smoothies so this perfect for me.
Can't jump straight into full green for sure!
Carol Cassara says
Sounds great! I love green smoothies but I don't want anything that tastes too leafy, if that makes sense. This is the perfect recipe and guide!
Thanks Carol - definitely not too leafy
I am a huge sucker for smoothies. Lately, I've been trying out a bunch of different ones. I will have to give this one a try. Yum
Awesome Jeanine! Let me know how you go
Candy Rachelle says
I am a huge believer in smoothies and cold-pressed juices and am always looking for new recipes. I read on another site to freeze using popsicle molds. I never thought to use popcicle molds! This is something I will be trying for something quick and on-the-go! Thanks!
That's an awesome idea!
Emily Morton says
I've been completely obsessed with smoothies lately. This looks like an awesome one!

This looks so good...I'm just wondering why I have never thought to use these for my smoothie..they always end up in my bowl of oats....I'll try this soon
Shoshana Sue says
My hands are covering my face with embarrassement as I tell you now that I have never tasted or had chia seeds- ever haha. I love kale, berries and I am thinking this is a superb recipe combining all my darling ingredients. I am trying this smoothie out. Oh and like you I hate wasting food and I appreciate the tip about bananas!
Haha no need to be embarrassed Shoshana! But definitely start putting the chia seeds in your smoothies today! haha. Hope you enjoy lovely
Jasmine Eclipse says
Yummmm! I need to get a blender so I can make all these yummy smoothie recipes I see online, especially this one!
My blender is my second favourite appliance. Food processor is number 1
I love how you have used those berries to make that cute smiley face topping! The recipe is delicious and would make a great addition to my breakfast 🙂
I'm glad you noticed Khushboo!!
Jen Temcio says
I am totally fine with vegetable taste in my smoothies, but my teen son is NOT! I will make this for him so he can get in some veggies.
Good idea Jen!
Terri Steffes says
I love smoothies. I add protein powder to all of mine now. I am loving the TWO greens in yours!
I do love to add protein powders in too! YUM!
Susan Minich says
Heather Johnson says
I used to use the frozen baby food cubes that I made for my kiddos to make smoothies sometimes. I usually add milk to thin mine out and to add a little extra protein.
Good idea Heather
I have a hard time eating breakfast beause I'm generally not hungry in the morning, but I can always go for a smoothie!! This looks like it would be a great start to my day, something I can make and take, and I'd love to try it! Thanks
Hope you enjoy Pam!
This berry and greens smoothie is my kind of way to fuel myself either for breakfast or snack.i love the mixture of kale and spinach in there. i also like that you added chia seeds and only half a banana.
Glad you like it Andrea!
That smoothie looks so good for a cool treat this summer. I never thought about greens in a smoothie. I will give this to my kids so they get their veggies in a sweet way.
They might not even guess they are in there!
Sarah Bailey says
Oh now I like the sound of this, all those berries mixed in the with the greens, perfect combo!
It's a really nice refreshing combo
Karen Morse says
Smoothies are awesome and there are so many recipes and combinations that you can do. This is a great guide for people who'd like an introduction to green smoothies. It's good to start with less greens at first.
So very true Karen
That looks delicious and healthy! I love all the seeds you put in there. What a great eat/drink well on the go!
Thanks Heather 🙂
tara pittman says
That sounds like a wonderful breakfast. I just love smoothies!
Me too Tara!
Erica M says
I always freeze my fruit before making a smoothie. But I've never frozen the veggies. Such a smart concept. I'm not sure why that never occurred to me. Will definitely start doing that from now on.
I love it - never have to throw out kale or spinach again!
Helene Cohen Bludman says
I love having smoothies in the morning. This one looks delicious.
Thanks Helene 🙂
Sherri Coleman says
My wish is that smoothies will balance out the mini dutch babies, stuffed french toast, and pound cakes! Can this replace exercise?
Haha love it Sherri
Love green smoothies! My family's favorite is kale/banana/strawberry/blueberry. When the kids want a special treat we also add some yogurt, which they love.
YUM! Sounds lovely heather
robin rue says
This smoothie sounds awesome and I have to be honest, I love that it's not the color green. So many green smoothies that are actually green are a huge turnoff to me 🙂
Yeh I can be a little iffy about it too!
