Berries are in season and are naturally sweet. They are a great way to start off the day because they are packed full of fiber and vitamin C.



Makes 2 servings



  • 2 cups frozen strawberries, blackberries, blueberries or raspberries
  • 1 small banana, sliced
  • 1/2 cup light coconut milk
  • 1/2 cup lowfat vanilla greek yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 teaspoon grated lemon zest



Process blackberries, banana, coconut milk, yogurt, lemon juice, honey and lemon zest in a blender until smooth. Divide the mixture evenly into 2 chilled glasses and serve.
