You can use your favorite berries but that must be frozen. You can take blueberries, strawberries, and raspberries mixed or can choose any one type.

Banana (pieces of one banana):

If you like a thick smoothie then take a frozen banana. But if you want a thin smoothie then take normal bananas.

If you like to add extra proteins to the berry banana smoothie then add yogurt. But choose Greek yogurt as it does not have any sour taste. Do not take flavored yogurt as it can alter the taste of a banana berry smoothie.

Ice cubes:
