Very Berry Smoothie

***What's the perfect light lunch on a hot summer day? You guessed it...a cold, delicious mixed berry smoothie. The honey, vanilla and cinnamon in this recipe really adds that something special. I love a nice mix of different berries, so I just used mixed frozen berries. However, please feel free to substitute a mixture of your favorite frozen fruit. I added a sprig of fresh mint for garnish.***

Ingredients:
2 cups mixed, frozen berries (strawberry, blueberry, raspberry, & blackberry)
1 (8 ounce) container vanilla yogurt
1 cup 2% low-fat milk
3 tablespoons honey
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 pinch cinnamon
Fresh mint, for garnish

Directions:
* Combine all ingredients in blender.
* Blend until thick and smooth, about 2 minutes.
* Pour into 2 large glasses. Garnish with fresh mint, if desired.
* Serve immediately.
