One of my favorite things about summer is all the fresh berries available. Especially here in Louisiana, where locally grown strawberries are ruby red and juicier than any fruit you’ll ever try. It makes me even more thankful to live in a place with such tasty food!

Since summer is basically just a time for me to figure out how to eat the most amount of berries I possibly can, I have to get creative with recipes. My favorite? Smoothies! I love freezing fresh berries and throwing them in the blender for creamy, refreshing smoothies.

This Triple Berry Smoothie is one of our favorites right now! Berries are a great source of antioxidants, so we have three types of berries in here for the nutrition punch. And the tastiness. :) Greek yogurt adds protein and creaminess, and you can even add a handful of spinach for extra nutrients.

You and your kids will love this refreshing Triple Berry Smoothie for breakfast or a snack on warm summer days!

Did you know berries are considered some of the world’s most powerful superfoods? They are rich in antioxidants, vitamins C and E, and phytochemicals, so you can feel good about serving them to your family—and your kids will love them!

Cut the prep time for this recipe even shorter by making multiple parfaits at once and storing them in your fridge for grab-and-go moments. I like to keep them on a low shelf so my kids can easily grab them when it’s snack time.

Let your kids get involved with prepping these parfaits! Older children can chop the strawberries, and younger ones can help assemble the ingredients in the jars.

Making these parfaits is so simple! Check out this video to see how I do it:
