I won’t call mine as an authentic recipe, as I went with a different spice mix that we prefer. So here comes my version of Aam Panna. :-)

Mixed Berries and Yogurt Smoothie

Mixed Berries & Yogurt Smoothie

Yesterday I posted a simple smoothie with fresh bananas and today’s smoothie is also simple but instead of fresh fruits, I choose frozen fruits.  We love berry smoothie, but finding them year around is difficult. So I always have a frozen pack in handy so that I can whip up some easy smoothies, parfaits not only for breakfast but for snacks.  This is a simple four-ingredient fix.
