Yesterday morning I whipped up a vegan, berry spinach smoothie and thought I would video my creation and share it here.
Here is my “recipe” and list of the ingredients:
- a couple of handfuls of blueberries (frozen and fresh)
- handful of strawberries
- one whole apple
- a few handfuls of baby spinach (add to taste, it gets sweet when mixed in the blender)
- fresh mint
- almond milk
- protein powder
- crushed ice
As I mentioned in the video I don’t measure the ingredients as I just like to throw stuff together. I forgot to add the raspberries I normally add. The less ingredients the more you will be able to taste the berries, but I tend to throw in anything I can get my hands on until the blender is full – mangoes and pears are great additions. My kids like banana’s but I find this pushes this into the high glycemic territory. You could probably use rice milk as well or dairy, of course, if you were so inclined (…but I can’t imagine why you would be).
With the protein powder in the drink, it ends up being a near meal and I put it in the fridge so I can have it as a snack all throughout the weekend whenever I make it.
If you have your creations, add them in the comments below, would love to hear them. Enjoy!
