Your Skin Glowing, Low Sugar, Healthy, Berry Smoothie Recipe
Debatable, but I don’t think smoothies are only for breakfast time. I will often have a smoothie for lunch or a snack and even sometimes for dinner. I find them to be a great way to cure a sweet craving without much sugar.
A good blender is key to a good smoothie and after burning through three different nutribullets over the course of three years, I bought a Ninja Foodie Power Nutri Duo. This thing has SO much power, comes with two different sized cups and doesn’t take up too much cupboard space.
Protein Powder/Collagen – I rotate between grass fed whey, goats whey and bovine collagen in my smoothies. I love all three and having a rotation means there is less likelihood of developing an intolerance to one or the other. I still love vegan protein powders as they are amazing to bake with but I’m definitely not using them in my smoothies anymore as I prefer to reap the amazing amino acid benefits of using a complete protein. The collagen hydrolysate from Nutraviva is sourced from grass fed, grass finished cows (happy healthy cows) to ensure all of those amazing nutrients are passed on to you. It also contains smaller pre-digested peptides (when compared to other proteins) which allows them to be absorbed by the body faster than intact proteins, this maximises nutrient delivery to cells which is awesome! Collagen is my pick for this healthy berry smoothie because it keeps it dairy free but will still deliver max nutrients to the body including loads of protein.
Smoothie sweeteners – I try not to load my smoothies up with too much fruit because #gutissues so I find they are not quite sweet enough without a little something extra and that extra is pure monk fruit extract. I wrote an entire blog on how amazing this stuff is and why you should be using it as your sweetener of choice if you experience gut health issues like bloating, gassy stomach, chronic constipation etc etc. Read why I love monk fruit sweetener so much here. It’s the perfect sweetener for this berry smoothie recipe.
Milk – This berry smoothie recipe will work with any milk you choice. I tend to use an almond or coconut milk that is free from fillers, gums and oils.
Extras – I’m loving the new super reds powder from Happy Way in smoothies right now! It adds so much flavour with just one scoop and as always with Happy Way products the ingredients are spot on/no nasties! Use code HAPPYBLONDE for a discount. This will also add a boost of sweetness to your smoothies or you can stir it into a glass of still or sparkling water for an afternoon pick me up!
