Pink Smoothie (Berry & Yogurt)

This pretty pink smoothie comes together in 5 minutes with only 5 ingredients. It makes a delicious breakfast that kids and adults love.

This smoothie is a fun and nutritious way to start the day! I love that it includes a full cup of fruit, 18 grams of protein, 5 grams of fiber, and a boost of calcium and vitamin C. 

I like making this for my kids (and myself) for breakfast or as a refreshing afternoon snack. It’s creamy, lightly sweet, and berry delicious. 🙂 

Pink Smoothie Ingredients

Frozen raspberries, frozen strawberries, milk, Greek yogurt, honey, and vanilla on a countertop.
  • Frozen raspberries and strawberries give this smoothie a pretty pink color. Frozen berries are the best way to get a slushie consistency without watering it down. I love that frozen fruit tends to be cheap, lasts for months, and has the nutritional quality of fresh!
  • Plain whole milk Greek yogurt is the thickener for this smoothie. I love that it provides probiotics, calcium, and protein. 
  • Milk is the best liquid to add to this smoothie to give it the most flavor. 
  • Honey adds a sweetness to this smoothie. We love including raw local honey in our diet! You can adjust the amount of honey to make it more or less sweet. A tablespoon of honey makes this a lightly sweet smoothie. Less is tangy and tart but still delicious. More honey will turn it into a sweet dessert-like treat. 
  • A splash of vanilla extract compliments the berries and cream flavors. But it’s optional.

Variations

  • Switch up the sweetener: Use maple syrup or agave in place of the honey. 
  • Make it vegan and dairy-free: Use coconut-based yogurt, plant-based milk, and maple syrup instead of honey.
  • Make a reduced-fat pink smoothie: Use reduced-fat milk and yogurt to reduce the fat and calories.

How to Make a Pink Smoothie

Everything goes in the blender. But adding things in the correct order will help get a smoother result!

Add everything to a blender. The frozen berries should be closest to the blades. This means that you put them in first in a standard blender pitcher. If you’re using a single-serve blender cup, you’ll want to put the frozen berries on top. They’ll end up close to the blade.

Pour the milk in last so the liquid seeps over the other ingredients.

Then, blend until smooth. If your smoothie is too thick, add a splash of milk and blend until smooth. If it’s too thin, add a few ice cubes and blend them in.

What to do with leftover smoothies

You can refrigerate any leftover smoothie. Re-stir it before drinking, and it will still be delicious. If you want to add a frozen consistency to the leftover smoothie, add it to the blender with a handful of ice. Re-blend until smooth.

How to Serve this Pink Smoothie

  • Enjoy one as a meal on the go with almost 20 grams of protein.
  • Serve a whole smoothie or split the recipe between 2 little kids. It can be part of a balanced breakfast, a snack, or a wholesome sweet treat.
  • Serve it as part of a special Valentine’s Day breakfast. I love serving this smoothie with fresh fruit and a heart-shaped strawberry pastry!
  • This is a fun recipe for a Galentine’s Day brunch or breakfast for a girl’s sleepover!
  • Have a Barbie-themed birthday party? Make sure to start the day with a pink smoothie birthday breakfast.
