Smoothies have been a hit across social media platforms for quite a while now, but so far I haven’t joined the trend. I’m all for healthier versions of the classic milkshake, but I’ve never been one to drink my meals. What can I say – there’s just something about chewing my food that I like! The various textures, the pops of flavor you get when you bite into different parts of a dish, and the satiation from eating rather than drinking are all part of why I haven’t been big on smoothies. It doesn’t help that the majority of smoothie recipes I come across contain bananas. Have I mentioned that’s the one fruit I don’t like?!

Over the past few weeks, I have begun to recognize why smoothies are so popular for many. They’re relatively quick and easy to make, require little cleanup, can be eaten on the go, and are super refreshing on a hot day, which thankfully we’re starting to get here in NY. Plus, they’re an efficient and Nutritioulicious way to increase your intake of fruits and vegetables, something almost everyone needs to do.

When made with nutrient-rich ingredients like fruit, vegetables, low-fat yogurt, and nut butters, smoothies can be an all-in-one balanced meal or snack. To increase the satiety of smoothies, I suggest adding a fiber supplement powder like Metamucil, which provides 3 grams of fiber per tablespoon. The addition of Metamucil will help you feel less hungry between meals*, help maintain blood sugar levels*, and help to promote digestive health*.

This mixed berry yogurt smoothie is made with low-fat yogurt for a creamy consistency and a protein and calcium boost. Some fresh squeezed orange juice is added to balance out the flavors, and using frozen fruit eliminates the need for added ice.

  1. I’m a smoothie addict! I love that they are packed with nutrition and can taste so different just with changing a couple ingredients. This recipe looks extra tasty. What a great way to add in more nutrition with the Metamucil.

    1. You make a great point about the ease of changing up the ingredients to have the same recipe with a different flavor. I guess I just never feel totally satisfied with it as a meal!

  2. I’ve actually made the same exact smoothie [without the powder] but I think it’s a great addition! I didn’t realize there were different Metamucil flavors. Can’t wait to buy this one!

    1. So funny! It’s a great combo and the metamucil doesn’t really add much flavor, but definitely adds to the nutrition!

    1. Spinach would definitely fit well with this smoothie – and you’ll get an iron boost from combining the spinach with the vitamin c-rich berries!

  3. I’m not a smoothie person, but this looks & sounds delicious & filling. And yay, no protein powder! Love the adorable jar, too. Where can I get one?

    1. Thanks Rose! I’m not a big smoothie person either, partly because so many are made with protein powders, which I don’t use. Glad you like this one! The jars are pretty widespread these days. You can get them at Home Goods, Bed Bath & Beyond or other houseware stores. Hope you enjoy!
