gluten-free dairy-free refined sugar free

This easy breakfast berry protein smoothie recipe uses mixed frozen berries & multiple sources of protein for a filling, nourishing meal to carry you through the day! Makes the perfect quick & healthy on-the-go breakfast or snack! Can be used to make smoothie bowls too!



Combine all the ingredients in a blender.



Blend on high until very smooth and creamy.



Taste and adjust sweetness to your liking!

If you like a thicker smoothie or are using fresh instead of frozen berries, add ice for better texture. For a thinner consistency, add more milk. If you prefer a sweeter, smoothie, add 1/2 sliced banana to this recipe.

simple ways to customize this recipe:

Make the smoothie thicker using only 3/4 cup milk. Also, make sure to use frozen berries to help you get that thick consistency. Once blended, pour into a bowl and add your choice of toppings - nuts, seeds, fresh fruit, granola, honey, cacao nibs or a drizzle of almond butter.
