In honor of National Berry Month (which happens in July), Driscoll’s Berries has been sending me some yummy organic berry recipes all month to share with readers. So far we’ve seen…
- Homemade Organic Blackberry Chocolate Frozen Yogurt
- Elegant Organic Berries and Zabaglione for Dessert
- Organic Caribbean Raspberry Avocado Salad
The final berry event this month is a kid-friendly, organic, and healthy mixed berry smoothie. You can make this smoothie exactly as shown, or experiment with your own mixture of organic berries. Smoothies are perfect for many folks. Kids love them, they’re a super healthy pregnancy drink, and they cool everyone off in summer but aren’t full of chemicals like soda pop.
Drscoll’s Berries offers organic berries at many stores, which means you can make this smoothie pesticide free!

Crystallized ginger adds a sweet spiciness to this berry blend. A few pinches of dry ginger can be substituted. Ginger is listed on many “super foods” lists, along with berries, so this smoothie is a super refreshing, healthy treat.
Thanks to Driscoll’s Berries for the recipe and lovely berrylicious images
