Berry, Berry Good Smoothie: A New Take on an Old Classic

Although summer is drawing to a close, I still have a hankering for berries. What better way to get them than in my morning smoothie! Taking our old favorite, Green Goddess Smoothie, I added a little OJ and some frozen organic berries (found in the freezer section; cheaper than fresh, but with the same maximum nutritional punch). Also, because my energy has been dragging a bit lately (credited to a wee back injury), I tossed in a few tabs of Brewer’s Yeast for extra Niacin and B-vitamins.

The result? A fresh, delish, superfood smoothie that is just, dare I say it, berry berry good! 😉

The Berry, Berry Good Smoothie

Serves 1
1 – 1 1/2 scoops of Garden of Life RAW Protein, Vanilla flavored (seen here)
1/2 banana
Handful of Spinach or Kale (or both!)
1/4 of an avocado
1/4 cup 100% OJ (squeeze your own, or do like I do and get it from the grocery; if you buy it from the store, read the ingredients. We want only OJ in the list!)
1/4 cup milk (hemp, rice, almond, flax, etc.)
1/2 cup H2O
1/2 cup ice
1/2 tsp maca powder (seen here)
1/4 c. berries
4-5 Brewer’s Yeast tablets, or 1 tsp Brewer’s Yeast powder

For a yummy sorbet and kid-friendly dessert, add a few more ice cubes and blend or freeze until almost solid!

 Bon appétit!
