All Smoothies are not Equal

I have been on a smoothie kick recently. I often go through these kicks during the summer. In the past I have thrown in whatever I could find in the refrigerator or freezer, sweetened it until I was happy, and called it a day.

However, I noticed that although every smoothie was good, they weren’t all great. Some were too thick, some too thin, some too sweet, and some too tart. I decided that I needed to measure and write down what I was doing, so that I could replicate my best smoothies. Done.

Berry Smoothie

After my recent sinus surgery, it hurt to chew for a week or two. So, I have had ample opportunity to work on my smoothie game. The first smoothie recipe I will present to you is my berry smoothie.

This thing is EASY to make. Really easy. And quick. So, it works for weekday breakfasts or a afternoon snack. This smoothie is MY version of perfection. It’s thick, but I can still drink it through a straw. And it’s sweet enough to make me smile, but not so sweet I think I’m eating dessert.

Here are a few tips and recipe options for making this berry smoothie:

  • You need a good blender. I highly recommend this Ninja Blender.
  • I highly recommend the Honey Vanilla Greek Yogurt. It adds a subtle, sweet taste. If you use a different type of flavored Greek yogurt, taste before adding honey to make sure you are not over sweetening your smoothie. If you use plain Greek yogurt, you will likely need more honey than 1/2 tbsp.
  • You can substitute any berries you like, but I recommend you keep the ratio of 1 cup frozen berries to 1/2 cup fresh berries. This helps to keep the smoothies cold, but smooth enough to drink through a straw.
  • Often times I’ll add in a 1/2 cup of fresh spinach or kale. These add nutrients without making the smoothie taste like a vegetable.
  • Vanilla almond milk is my favorite for smoothies. It’s lightly sweetened with a subtle flavor. Regular milk, coconut milk, or unsweetened almond milk work, but you will likely want to add more honey and
  • vanilla extract.
  • Besides honey, agave and maple syrup taste great as well. The maple syrup will change the flavor though.
