Fresh vs. Frozen Mixed Berries
Discover the secret to a more satisfying smoothie texture – frozen berries! Opting for frozen blackberries, blueberries, raspberries, and strawberries creates a thicker and less icy smoothie. Unlike fresh fruit with added ice, the frozen berries lend a more solidified consistency, enhancing your smoothie experience.
What Type of Mixed Berries Should I Use?
Make your smoothie truly yours by selecting your favorite berries. Whether it’s strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, or an adventurous addition like acai berries or goji berries, the choice is yours! Customize your blend to suit your taste preferences and create a berrylicious symphony of flavors.
What is Pea Protein?
Boost your protein intake with the addition of pea protein to your smoothies. Derived from yellow and green split peas, this plant-based protein supplement promotes muscle growth and naturally increases metabolism. Ideal for vegans and vegetarians, pea protein adds a nutritional punch to your smoothie routine.
The Secret Ingredient: Almond Butter
Elevate the thickness and richness of your smoothie by adding a scoop (or two) of almond butter. This sophisticated alternative to peanut butter imparts a delightful nutty flavor while providing a dose of heart-healthy fats. Almond butter adds a creamy touch to your favorite healthy smoothies.
Extra tips and advice:
- For the freshest almond butter, consider making it from scratch for your smoothie.
- No sugar is added to this recipe, as the natural sweetness of mixed frozen berries shines through. However, if desired, you can enhance the sweetness with healthy options like coconut sugar, stevia, or monk fruit sugar.
- Enhance the nutritional value by incorporating protein alternatives of your choice, such as other plant-based, organic options.
- If you’re seeking an extra boost of micronutrients, consider adding greens like spirulina and chia seeds. However, the existing ingredients already offer a plethora of benefits to enjoy.
