on weekday mornings, we always have warm oat meal, one or two smoothies, raisins, homemade granola, dried berries and fresh berries or fruits as often as possible. i like to have a fruit based smoothie and a green smoothie. it’s nice to have a repetoire of 5 or 6 favourite smoothies to choose from, especially on weekday mornings when we don’t have too much time.
this berry smoothie* has become a new favourite of ours. for 3-4 servings of berry smoothie you need:
1 cup almond milk
1/2 cup orange juice (not from concentrate)
2 ripe bananas
2 cups of frozen berries (i use a mix of raspberry, strawberry, blueberry, blackberry)
2 tbsp. flax seeds
3 servings of DHA+EPA oils (we use this one)
in the winter we also add vitamin d drops.
1. everything goes in the blender, but 1 cup frozen berries and the bananas. mix at high speed for 2 minutes.
2. add the last cup of frozen berries and the bananas, and blend again.
*this smoothie is best served right away, but can stay fresh in the fridge for about 8 hours.0
