Do you like berries? My children loves all sorts of berries and especially blueberry. Both fresh and frozen berries disappears very quickly in my house as we couldn’t resist eating them. For me, I try to find as many excuse to eat them as possible so after my workouts each morning, I like to quench my thirst and cool down with my Berry Smoothie.
It’s really easy to make healthy smoothies at home and with Nutribullet. With this blender, cleanup is super quick. For this smoothie, I add frozen mixed berries, baby kale, banana, non-fat Greek yogurt, chia seeds and almond milk. If you wonder if whether you can taste kale in the drink, no, you don’t taste it at all.
It’s so easy to make and amazingly delicious! You can use fresh berries that are in season (in that case, add ice cubes or freeze them first), but even when berries are not in season, frozen berries are perfect for making this smoothie.
To avoid unhealthy snacks, I drink a smoothie between meals as my snack so that I can keep my meal portion smaller. It feels great to eat healthy while getting the good nutrients our body needs. Now that summer is in full swing, it’s time to beat the heat with delicious and nutritious smoothies!
