Smoothie recipes have so much potential! You can combine a wide variety of ingredients, add a splash of liquid, something frozen and something sweet and viola! You have yourself something magical and cool. Here are 2 berry smoothie recipes that are great for summer breakfast, lunch or snacks. Also- I have made a couple smoothies for dinners when I didn’t know what I wanted but had to eat something!
As I wrote in a previous post about my Green Smoothie recipe, there can be a lot of nutritional value to your smoothies. You don’t always have to go with the sweetest ingredients. But here is a quick list of things you might want to add to your next smoothie- fresh or frozen.
|Bananas||Protein powder or shake|
|Berries- I like Costco’s Triple Berry Blend||Coconut water|
|Watermelon||Regular yogurt or favorite yogurt|
|Peaches||Ice (but I don’t typically use ice)|
Triple Berry Smoothie Recipe
3 Easy Ingredients! The Premier protein shake makes this smoothie 32 oz total but I drink from a 16 oz cup. It’s sweet and delicious!
- 2 cups Triple berry blend form Costco
- 1 banana
- 1 Premier protein shake
- Makes 32 oz of smoothie, I drank a 16 oz cup
Blackberry & Honey Smoothie Recipe
Combine protein shake with Greek yogurt and whatever fresh berries you have in the fridge!
- 1/4 cup blackberries
- 1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt
- 2-3 tbs of honey (or to sweeten) 🍯
- 3 tbs mixed nut butter
- 1 cup of ice 🧊
- ~1/4 cup of unsweetened, vanilla almond milk or milk of choice 🥛
Green Smoothie with Spinach and Avocado
Sounds like it might be gross with the smoothie and strange bitter flavor that sometimes accompanies an avocado- but bananas are a great sweetener and mellows it out.
- 1 cup frozen spinach
- 1/4 cup orange juice
- 1/4 cup yogurt
- 1 banana
- Frozen berries or ice
- 1/2 avocado
