Ingredients

  • 1 cup of fresh or frozen blackberries
  • 1/2 of a frozen banana
  • 1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 4 cubes of ice
  • 1/2-3/4 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • a few drops of liquid stevia or other natural sweetener to taste

Instructions

  • Blend: Place blackberries, banana, yogurt, ice cubes and 1/4 cup milk in blender and blend until fruit is pureed and ingredients are well combined.
  • Taste: Taste and add stevia to sweeten as well as more milk to get the desired thickness (if necessary).
  • Serve: Pour into a glass and enjoy!

Notes

  • No banana – This smoothie is still delicious without a banana. I recommend adding in 1/2 cup of frozen blueberries or frozen mango if you skip the banana.
  • Dairy-free – If you are looking for a dairy-free or vegan option, I recommend using a dairy-free yogurt!
  • Stevia – feel free to sub with another liquid sweetener like maple syrup, honey or monkfruit.
  • Flaxseeds or chia seeds – add healthy fats, protein and fiber with the addition of seeds!
  • Protein powder – I love adding protein powder for an extra protein boost... especially if I'm enjoying this smoothie on it's own for a meal or snack. I use Nuzest vanilla protein in this smoothie!
