The Berry Bomb Vegan Smoothie!

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
  • water

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!

    I'm surprised you still have fingers the way you cut apples! (-;
    We make the same shake but instead of protein powder we add almond butter and hemp seeds…and bananas.
    Nice Shirt.

    Almond butter is a great idea. Will try that. Shirt is a chop chop special. Thanks for stopping by Chase!
