Full of juicy berries, this Triple Berry Smoothie is the perfect nutritious breakfast to start you and your kids' day! It's fruity, creamy, and packed with nutrition.

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, just like my pineapple spinach smoothie. Both recipes will help you get healthier food into your family’s diet, even if you have pick eaters!

I’m always on a mission to find healthy ways of serving foods that my family will love, which is how I ended up building an entire program that helps families eat better together. In my Family KickStart Program, you’ll learn how to eliminate processed foods as a family without fussing and fighting. The program is full of delicious recipes for every meal, meal plans, shopping lists and everything else your family will need to succeed.

If you’ve had trouble sticking with programs that have you eating differently for 30 or 21 days, this is the answer you’ve been looking for. It’s so much easier to stay on track when the whole family is on board and excited about what you are doing. I included recipes like healthy pancakes and other treats kids love, so you can eliminating whining at the table, and cook one meal for everyone (even your picky eaters).

Grab a free sample of the Family KickStart Program here and start eliminating processed foods with your family on your team.

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

Oh, overnight oats! The simplest breakfast there ever was. I mean, what’s better than waking up to breakfast already completely done? I can’t think of anything else!

These couldn’t be easier – 5 minutes of prep at night to have breakfast waiting for you when you wake up. Make a few jars of these apple cinnamon overnight oats to eat throughout the week and you won’t have to think about breakfast ever again!
