I know, a smoothie recipe isn’t really a recipe. As long as you have some fruit, a thickener, and a liquid, you can pretty much create any kind of smoothie you like. But this mixed berry smoothie is my go-to breakfast and too good not to include on the blog. It is high in protein from the milk, yogurt, almond butter, and protein powder (which you can’t taste) and delicious in flavor from the berries and ripe banana. You can add cacao powder to give it a chocolaty berry taste, or leave it out. A sprinkle of bee pollen, which you can find in stores and online, gives the smoothie a bit of crunch and a floral honey finish.
- 1/2 cup mixed berries
- 1 very ripe banana
- 3/4 cup milk of choice
- 1/2 cup Greek yogurt with honey (or regular yogurt, and add honey or 1 Medjool date)
- 2 tbsp almond butter
- 1 tbsp hemp protein
- bee pollen (optional, but worth it)
- 1 tbsp cacao powder (optional, for a chocolaty taste)
Blend everything together. Wow, what a recipe!
