The Very Berry Smoothie Recipe

I'm not a breakfast person.  At least not seven days a week.  A cup of coffee and off to get on with the rest of my day.  I know, breakfast is the most important meal of the day.  However, eating breakfast makes me hungrier more throughout the day.

Instead of focusing on my tasks at hand, I end up making more trips than I should to raid the frig and/or pantry.  I usually just wait to eat my first meal around brunch time, but with I've been taking on more opportunities in both my personal and professional life that have me away from home during brunch time.  To solve my breakfast/brunch dilemma, I've decided to just start substituting my morning cup of coffee with my very own Very Berry Smoothie.



I love that I can make as much or as little as I want of this smoothie.  I just have a cup while I'm getting ready and pour the rest into one of cold beverage mugs and take it on the go.  I'm giving my body the nutrients it needs and not binge eating or staving off hunger until lunchtime.  Anyways, below is the recipe.  And of course, you always adjust the measurements of the ingredients to your liking.


Ingredients
1/2 cup ice
1 cup frozen mixed berries (or fresh, if you prefer)
1/2-1 cup soy milk (or milk of your choice)
1 teaspoon sugar (optional)

Directions
1. Pour all ingredients into a blender.
2. Mix.
3. Pour smoothie into a cup and enjoy!


I hope you enjoy my recipe.  If you try it let me know.  Also, let me know if you have any smoothie recipes that you really enjoy in the comments below.

  1. I am definitely not a morning person but I must have my breakfast. Sometimes breakfast is the only thing I eat throughout the day that is full. I just snack on and off for lunch and dinner. I love smoothies but mine never come out right so I gave up.

    1. Don't give up on the smoothies. It takes a while to tweak recipes to your liking. Also, the issue is sometimes the blender.

  3. I used to make smoothies daily. It's interesting you'd add sugar. An alternative, if you like pineapples or bananas, those would add a good amt of sweetness.

    1. When using the frozen berries, they're not always as sweet. And since this is strictly a berry smoothie, I just add a teaspoon of sugar when I'm not using fresh berries instead of adding other fruit. But the sugar is totally optional.

    2. I've found that smoothies are a great way to add nutrition into my toddler's diet. He doesn't always sit for a meal but he sure loves smoothies! It's always a great way to sneak some flax seeds, hemp, or chia into his diet :) #blogma
