Come summertime, we figure we should eat as many berries as we can. This creamy fruit shake is a great way to do just that.

kitchen gear

  • Measuring cup
  • Blender (adult needed)
  • 2 glasses


  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 cup plain yogurt
  • 1 cup fresh or frozen unsweetened raspberries or strawberries, or a combination
  • 1 cup fresh or frozen unsweetened cherries, pitted
  • 2 dates, pitted
  • 2 ice cubes


  • Put all the ingredients in the blender.
  • ​Put the top on tightly. Turn on the blender to medium speed and blend until the mixture is smooth, 30 to 60 seconds.
  • Divide the smoothie equally between the glasses and serve right away, or cover and refrigerate up to 4 hours.


Dates are a great natural sweetener because they also add nutrients, including fiber and the minerals calcium, magnesium, and potassium. Feel free to swap half a banana—another wholesome sweetener—for the dates, if you prefer.
“Pitted” means with the pits removed.
