Very Berry Smoothie

Okay, I confess. I've been on a smoothie kick lately. And the best part, I've been killing it with bananas.

As I mentioned in one of my previous posts, my family LOVES bananas. So much so, that very often I tend to over buy the bananas and they go brown faster than I expected. The best way to make use of them at that moment is to put them in a smoothie. But c'mon...I've already made a banana smoothie.

What I love about adding a riped banana to a smoothie combination is that it instantly sweetens it up. I could take the most bitter fruit ever, add a banana, and it tastes amazing! This day in particular, I decided to pair it with some berries.

Blueberries and strawberries are so rich in antioxidants and fiber. All of that power is just one cup. Unfortunately the berries I picked up weren't the sweetest in taste, so I added a banana to sweeten it up along with my almond milk.


All of my smoothies contain almond milk. I've seen several that likes to add yogurt, but I honestly just prefer almond milk or even the vanilla flavored almond milk. It works for me, and I feel turns out just as amazing.

Serving Size: 1 Glass
Very Berry Smoothie

Ingredients:
  • 1 cup blueberries
  • 1/2 cup strawberries
  • 1 banana
  • 1 cup almond milk


Directions:
  • In a blender, combine your bluberries, strawberries, banana, and almond milk
  • Pulse in the blender until you reach the consistency of your liking. I tend to blend for 45 seconds
  • If you'd like to thicken your smoothie up more, you can add a handful of ice cubes
  • Pour into your favorite glass and enjoy 


Smoothies are one of those power drinks that you can have for breakfast or as a snack in between. Anything that I can get versatile with I am a huge fan of. Now that I've mastered making smoothies for myself, I love that I can experiment with different fruits and simply blend them all together.


What are your favorite smoothie combinations?
