With the winter chill settling into my neck of the woods, mornings call for a healthy start. This Triple Berry Smoothie is a bright, fresh, and invigorating breakfast or post-workout treat.

The University of California’s Berkley Wellness center created a triple berry smoothie they say is the perfect post-holiday repentance. I’ve tweaked their recipe, created by nutritionist and exercise physiologist Jeanine Barone, just slightly to my taste — and what I always have on hand in the freezer.

By adding a whole banana, the smoothie becomes thicker and more milkshake like. But, if you’re like my son and like it thinner — cut the banana in half.

Either way… it’s simply and divinely delicious!
