Very Berry Smoothie
½ - 1 cup unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk (depending on thickness*) (*you can substitute other types of milk or milk alternatives based on your preference. I avoid using milk in smoothies which has lactose, a form of sugar.)
1-2 scoops of Vanilla Protein Powder ( such as Whey Protein Powder)
2 teaspoons of almond butter
½ cup fresh or frozen blueberries (If frozen I wild blueberries)
½ tsp cinnamon
4-6 Ice cubes (as desired, the more ice-cubes, the thicker the smoothie)
Pour the Almond Milk into a blender.
Add the remaining ingredients
Mix the ingredients in the blender until smooth. Pour into a glass and enjoy!
If you like your smoothie thinner, use more Almond Milk
If you like a thicker smoothie, use less liquid and/or add ½ cup Greek yogurt
If you like your smoothie to have a sweeter taste, add a small amount of sweetener of choice
Want more antioxidants? Add some frozen Acai Berry Puree (Sambazon makes an organic, unsweetened puree) Or add 1 1/2 tablespoons ground flax seed or chia seeds
