Wild Berry Smoothie

Wild Berry Smoothie

 

I’ve been wanting to try one of those Wild Berry Smoothies at McDonald’s ever since they came out. But since we rarely go there, I decided to create my own version of a wild berry smoothie at home. I used lots of delicious mixed berries, blackberries, blueberries, raspberries and strawberries. I used a bag of frozen mixed berries for convenience, but fresh fruit would be even better. To slightly sweeten my smoothie and add even more flavor, I learned a neat little trick from Sommer at A Spicy Perspective. I saw in her recent simple strawberry smoothie post she adds a little strawberry jam. Believe me, it is wonderful. It not only adds just the right amount of extra sweetness, but even more intense fruity flavor. For my smoothie I added raspberry jam, but you can add whatever berry jam you have handy. To add another layer of flavor, I added a squeeze of fresh lime juice. I used soy milk, so the acid didn’t curdle the milk. If you use a dairy milk, I would omit the lime juice.
