Serves: 1 smoothie
Ingredients
  • ½ cup frozen blackberries
  • ½ cup frozen raspberries (or sub strawberries)
  • 1/4 cup frozen blueberries (I like wild blueberries)
  • 1 frozen banana
  • 2 cups organic spinach
  • 1 tablespoon flaxseed meal
  • 1 tablespoon almond butter (or your favorite nut butter)
  • ½ cup plain greek yogurt (whole, 2% or fat free will all work)
  • ½ cup unsweetened almond milk, plus more as necessary
  • Optional: 1 tablespoon hemp seeds
Instructions
  1. In a large high-powered blender, add in all ingredients and blend on high for 1-2 minutes or until all ingredients are well combined. If necessary, add in more almond milk to thin the smoothie. Makes 1 smoothie.
Notes
if you are not a fan of bananas, you can feel free to skip the banana and simply use vanilla greek yogurt instead to help sweeten the smoothie a bit.

chia seeds: feel free to add in a tablespoon of chia seeds to your smoothie for a boost of healthy fats and fiber.

hemp seeds: if you’ve been wondering what to do with those hemp seeds lurking in your cupboard, feel free to throw in a tablespoon into your smoothie for a boost of healthy fats, omegas and minerals.

oats: to add a little heartiness to your smoothie and to help thicken it, feel free to add in 1/3 cup oats. Do not use steel cut oats as they will not blend well.

frozen cauliflower: feel free to throw in a cup of frozen cauliflower to thicken your smoothie and get extra veggies in, especially if you opt for fresh berries instead of frozen. You won’t even be able to taste it!
