Kalyn's Triple Berry Smoothie

Recently, my kids were home from school for 9 consecutive days due to Tulsa having more snow than ever before.  All area schools were closed for this amount of time, which is a record here.  Being all cooped up inside really made us all yearn for Spring.  
With the exception of cleaning it, my kids love being in the kitchen creating their own recipes.  On one of the snow days, Kalyn came up with this simple but delicious fruit smoothie.  It's so good, so easy I wanted to share it with you all. 



Kalyn's Triple Berry Smoothie


2 single serving containers of lowfat blueberry yogurt
2 Cups frozen strawberries
3 Tblsp blackberry jam
1 cup ice cubes appx.
3/4 Cup milk




Combine all ingredients into a blender and blend until smooth.




The strawberries, blueberries and tart blackberries combined make a pretty pastel color.

 A perfect match, served on a lavender transferware platter,




with adorable demi spoons shaped like twigs and leaves.




A perfect combination of tart and sweet




"This one is mine"

  1. Oh, these look wonderful and seeing the glasses took me right back to being a teenager and living at home. My Mom had those glasses! The spoons are amazing. I have never seen anything like them before.

  6. Your presentation was so pretty! When I make smoothies is a bit more messier than that. lol

    My kids love smoothies and you're right about being a nice spring/summer treat when the berries are in season. And when they are in season and really cheap, I buy a bunch and throw them in my freezer and use frozen strawberries in my smoothies instead of ice cubes.

    I'm hosting a food blog hop and I would love for you to link and up play along in our Friday Food Fight. I hope to see you in the ring.

  13. Nancy, these look delicious!

    You asked about the woven chargers with handles that I used in my tablescape. I got them a couple of weeks ago at World Market but you can also order them online. In the store, they were sold individually for $5.99 but they are sold in sets of 4 on the website. If you go to their website, enter SKU #432875 in the Search box and you should see them!

    Thanks so much for leaving such a nice comment about my 1st tablescape. You are one of the bloggers that has inspired me so much, so I feel honored that you visited my new blog!
