A Berry Delicious Smoothie

Ha…See what I did there??

Here’s a quick, healthy smoothie you can make for breakfast, lunch, a snack, pre-workout, post-workout, whenever! All you’ll need is a banana, some strawberries, blueberries, & whatever fresh/frozen fruit you can get your hands on! 

I used fresh berries because we had an abundance of them in the house & I figured why not freeze them for a smoothie? 

  I folded the larger bag in half when I froze it so I would remember to use the berries in 2 smoothies. 

Frozen fruit is a great option because it saves $$ & lets you enjoy your favourite fruit even when it’s out of season!

Fill your blender with about a cup of water (or milk if you want it creamy). A smaller amount of liquid will keep the mixture thick like an actual smoothie. 

Now it’s time to throw in your fruits.

   (it looks like more water because the fruit displaces it)

If this is your breakfast/pre-workout snack- keep your coffee or tea close..

  
I added chia seeds & vanilla protein to my mix. If there’s anything else you desire, there’s no time like the present. Add away!!

It’s blending time 

If your mini blender is anything like mine, you’ll have to help the whole blending thing actually happen…annoying side effect of getting a cheap blender. 

  
Enjoy your healthy, delicious little creation! Get creative with the next one 😉 

Adding smoothies to your regular diet is a great way to give yourself more energy. Being consistent is a little difficult at first, but once you start feeling the benefits in your body it’ll be worth it! Having more fruits & veggies will be a good thing.

~peace & all good~

Coffee Smoothie

How can you go wrong with a coffee smoothie? Two of the best thing mornings have to offer in one place… You’re welcome. 

So what will you need? 

  

  • coffee (shocking, I know) – about 1/2 cup brewed, or throw in 1/4 cup of grinds
  • 1/2 cup vanilla Greek yogurt
  • 1/2 banana, or the whole thing if it’s small 
  • 3-4 ice cubes

If you’re using coffee you brewed, try to let it cool before using it for your smoothie.

   I used way too much coffee…don’t follow in my footsteps. If you do, you’ll have a mixed coffee drink- not a smoothie. Still great, but not quite what I was going for..

Blend it all together in whatever you may use for smoothie-making until the  ice chunks are gone. Feel free to add anything else you want that will make a more enjoyable experience for you. 

  
Enjoy this protein, caffeine, deliciousness filled breakfast (or snack/pre-workout)!!! 

Have a wonderful day 🙂
