Berry Smoothie

Post image for Berry Smoothie

There are two kinds of people in this world: sweet and salty. I unfortunately, am one of those with a huge sweet tooth. I’m always trying to come up with healthy options that can still satisfy my craving. This berry smoothie is one of my favorites. It’s made with almond milk which gives it the perfect creaminess, and I also throw in a few mint leaves to make it refreshing. The best part? Almost anyone can eat it! It is vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free. =)

Ingredients:

-1 cup frozen strawberries

-1 cup frozen blueberries

-almond milk (approx 1 cup)

-1tbsp mint leaves

You will need either a blender or a hand blender (shown in this example)

Instructions:

Fill measuring cup with berries and mint leaves

Hand blend (or blend) ingredients

Once ingredients have a purplish/pink color you can pour it into a glass or bowl and eat with a spoon.

**now that you’ve made this recipe feel free to experiment with any fruit combination you’d like. I like to stick to frozen fruit because they give it a nice cold iciness!

I have problem that smoothies will be seperated after leave for a night.

This looked so good, I had to try it! I only had strawberries and mangoes in the freezer, though, but a straw-berry mango smoothie ended up being yummy! I left out the mint leaves, because I didn’t think they would combine well with the mangoes. Almond milk was a great idea :-)
