Berry Protein Smoothie Recipe Notes

You may use a frozen banana if you slice and freeze it in advance, otherwise, a ripe banana is perfect.

I like the freshness that fresh blueberries add to this mixed berry smoothie recipe, but if you opt for frozen blueberries I would suggest using wild blueberries, as wild berries tend to be bursting with antioxidants.

Frozen mixed berries can be found in the frozen food sections of grocery stores. Some are marketed as made for mixed berry smoothies, but you don’t need to get fancy, this is the kind I like to go with here: frozen mixed berries

For the protein powder, I often try different brands to see which I like and don’t like. This recipe is made with a vegan protein powder that has minimal ingredients. It’s organic and clean and adds a nice subtle vanilla flavor to this healthy berry smoothie recipe. You can find it online here: vanilla protein powder

When it comes to almond milk, I prefer plain unsweetened almond milk, but you can use unsweetened vanilla almond milk or even any non-dairy milk of your choice. Cashew milk is an easy swap for almond milk. It is another dairy-free milk option that I use often. This is my favorite almond milk.

You will also need a high speed blender. I have this Vitamix blender, and I love it. It’s available online here: Vitamix Blender. There are also many different blenders available online for different price ranges, and abilities. You can find those here: Blenders
