I love having shakes after I work out, as a snack, or even as a healthy dessert. These are my two favorite recipes that were developed by a Whole Foods nutritionist. They are super easy to make, and they taste amazing! You can add protein powder to either of these!
The Berry Vanilla Smoothie is thick enough to be eaten like an acai bowl with granola and bananas, but you can always drink it too! This recipe makes 2 servings, each at 110 calories. Save some for later, or enjoy with a friend!
Recipe: Berry Vanilla Smoothie
1 cup Almond Milk (I use Vanilla flavored)
1 tbsp vanilla (I use organic non-alcohol vanilla)
½ to 1 cup frozen mixed berries (a raspberry+blackberry+blueberry mix tastes best)
1-2 cups ice
about 1 tbsp agave nectar to sweeten, but you can always add more!
(I don’t usually do this, but you can add ½ cup of raw dehydrated almonds as well)
Just put them all together and blend! I love the berry-vanilla combo.
Bonus Recipe: Pumpkin Shake
1 cup almond milk
½ teaspoon of vanilla
2 squirts of stevia
½ can pumpkin
1/8 teaspoon of cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon of cloves
2 cups shaved ice
Place all ingredients in blender and blend until smooth.
