Milks & Smoothies
Berry Breakfast Smoothie
By: Christina Soong
To combat the mid-morning munchies, the kids and I often have a healthy fruit smoothie for breakfast in summer.
Quick Tips: You can make your own almond milk — See instructions here — for this smoothie or you can buy a pre-made almond milk from the supermarket. For a thicker smoothie, add a couple of tablespoons of natural or Greek style yoghurt. If you don’t have fresh berries, frozen berries work extremely well in this recipe, too.
- 2 cups fresh or frozen berries
- 1.5 cups almond milk
- 1 banana, peeled
- ¼ cup slithered or flaked almonds
- 2-4 dates, pitted or 1-2 tablespoons honey (to taste)
- Ice (optional)
Step by Step Instructions
Blend all ingredients until well combined.
Divide into two glasses and serve immediately.
