Healthy Berry Smoothie Recipe

Recently, I have really gotten into starting my day with a berry smoothie packed full of healthy goodness. This recipe is great because it gives you a ton of nutrients and keeps you full for hours! I looked for a lot of fruit smoothie recipes, and ended up creating this one. I’m pretty happy with it!

Smoothie Ingredients:

1.5 cups of milk – I use vanilla almond milk
1.5 cups of frozen berries – mine are a mix of raspberries and blueberries
1 tablespoon of ground flax
1 tablespoon of almond butter (or any nut butter)
1 cup of spinach

Smoothie Instructions:

Put in a blender in this order so that they all mix well – milk, flax seed, berries, almond butter, spinach. If you don’t use frozen berries, be sure to add ice cubes on top.

Smoothie Nutritional Facts:

Notes on nutrition –

As you can see, a lot of the calories come from the almond milk. If you use an unsweetened kind, that will lower the calorie level. But keep in mind that your body needs 1500-2500 calories a day (depending on your physical activity). This smoothie fills me up for 4-5 hours. If you’re having a low-calorie breakfast and then a snack in the middle of the morning, it probably adds up to at least this number.

If you really struggle to get enough leafy green vegetables per day, a fruit smoothie like this is actually a really good way to go. I hate bananas and have low potassium levels (pros of having my kind of health issues – monthly blood work to check these kinds of things), so I started getting them like this, which has really helped.

    I make berry smoothies, but they're always the unhealthy kind. I'll definitely try your healthy recipe. Raspberries are my absolute favorite fruit! 🙂
