The Best Berry Smoothie

Follow my blog with Bloglovin
You might remember a while back, quite a while back, I wrote a post featuring my Berry Smoothie Recipe. I’ve been making the smoothie on a regular basis since then and the other day, I realised that I’ve changed a lot. I wrote that post nearly three years ago wow and since then I’ve tried to make the smoothie a lot healthier and also better tasting.

I considered just updating the last post but I’m not a massive fan of doing that purely because I like to look back on older posts to see how far this blog has come. Anyway, here’s the new recipe- the Berry Smoothie 2.0!

I like to use a Nutribullet to blend everything up, but as long as you’ve got a decently strong blender, the recipe should work for you! If your blenders not so strong, leave out the almonds, you don’t want chunks of nuts in between mouthfuls!

Ingredients

 

 

1 frozen banana to make the drink creamy and cold
1/2 cup frozen berries because it is a berry smoothie… you can use whatever berries you prefer, I normally go for a mix
1/2 cup greek yoghurt (optional) for protein
250 ml/ 1 cup soy milk (approx) you just need to fill it up to the blend line… personally I find soy milk makes it taste much nicer than normal (dairy) milk, but whatever floats your boat
1 handful of rolled oats (optional) to make the smoothie more filling
1 Tablespoon of chia seeds (optional) because they’re good for you and you can’t taste them, what’s better than that?
1 handful of almonds (optional) again, they’re healthy but don’t put too many in unless you want a very nutty taste
1 teaspoon of honey (to taste) because it beats sugar (marginally)

Method

Not sure this really justified a ‘method’ but just chuck it all in the blender and blend!

Tips

  • Put the soy milk in before the chia seeds, otherwise they’ll stick to the side and be a pain to clean
  • The measurements don’t really matter- they’re just guidelines. I always ‘eyeball it’!
  • To make it vegan take out the yoghurt and switch the honey for maple syrup/leave it out
  • For a smoothie bowl, just put enough soy milk in so that it blends. This way it’ll be super thick and you’ll be able to eat it with a spoon!
That’s it! The smoothie is incredibly easy to make and great to make as a breakfast on the go! Let me know if you try out the recipe and if so how you find it!
