Dairy Free Mixed Berry Protein Smoothie

Leave a comment

After my 5 mile run today, I made probably the best tasting smoothie so far – I think it was the peanut butter. Here are the ingredients and approx amounts (I honestly just threw stuff together!) Great source of potassium, protein, and vitamin C.

In a blender, blend until smooth:

1/2 c coconut milk (I use the coconut milk from a can; also this was partially frozen because it was left over from another dish I had made)
1 frozen banana
3/4 c mixed frozen berries (strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, blackberries)
1 scoop vanilla whey protein (optional)
1.5 tsp ground flax seed (for omega 3s!)
2 tsp natural low sodium peanut butter
additional almond milk (about 1/4 cup) as needed for texture

A little rosemary next time will probably make it quite a fun drink!
