Smoothies are popular for a reason. They’re quick to make, easy to consume, and can be full of nutrients. Unfortunately, too often when you buy a smoothie on the go, they are laden with sugar and other questionable ingredients. You’re best bet then is to make your own! Not only will you know what is actually going into your drink, but you’ll also save money and it is so darn easy.
This is my basic smoothie drink when I am on the go and want a fruity drink with a kick of protein. My boyfriend asks me to make this very smoothie practically every day so it’s certainly only for everyone to enjoy.
1 heaping cup of frozen mixed berries
⅓ cup plain greek yogurt
½ – 1 cup milk of choice
Splash of vanilla extract
1 tablespoon maple syrup (could also use stevia, honey, agave, etc.)
Place all ingredients into a blender and blend!
Add more or less milk to achieve desired thickness.
