Berry protein smoothie for our 10-day challenge

Berry Protein Smoothie

10.26.2015


Give yourself a plant-based protein boost with this yummy Berry Protein Smoothie that uses nutrient-dense almonds.

Berry Protein Smoothie ingredients with almonds

Everyone knows you need protein to keep your body fueled, especially after a workout. If you’re working towards a flat tummy or toning up your muscles (who isn’t?), then this Berry Protein Smoothie needs to be on your radar.

Can you add protein to smoothies?

Absolutely! The body uses protein at a slower rate than carbohydrates, so adding protein to your smoothies helps prevent blood sugar spikes and hunger pains.

This smoothie is amazing for more than just the protein in this smoothie – it’s loaded up with berries and banana (healthy carbs) which contain vital nutrients, dietary fiber, minerals, and antioxidants. You simply can’t ask for a better snack!

What protein is best to add to my smoothie?

I always recommend using the purest form of plant-based protein to add to your smoothies. I’m in the process of making my own line or organic blends that will be amazing. We’re weeks away from having them shipped to my house for ya’ll to enjoy!

If you like powders, make sure to read the back and find the one with the cleanest ingredients (avoid the gums, natural flavors, stevia, monk fruit, etc). I personally recommend these protein boosts:

  • 2 tbs chia seeds
  • 2 tbs hemp hearts
  • 2 tbs organic tofu

How much protein is in a mixed berry smoothie?

This smoothie contains 12 grams of pure, raw plant-based protein. This is a great amount for a meal replacement for most people. Yet if you’re training hard or insanely active, you might want to up it. If you need more than that, feel free to add in protein power of more nuts even!

Check out our article on the best meal replacement add-ins to ramp up the nutrition and to keep you going strong. (p.s. We’ve got other great post-workout smoothies too!)

    Even tho I didn’t read correct the recipe, and I use water instead of almond milk, this was very good smoothie!

  2. Barbara says:

    I think I prefer eating almonds separate.

  3. Alissabeth Taylor says:

    Yummy! Tart at first, but just sweet enough when you get going. I would probably add more banana next time. Added a boost with some flax!

  4. Stacia Wilson says:

    I didn’t look ahead and missed the step to soak the almonds. Thankfully I have a powerful blender and the almonds blended perfectly. I had to add a little water but other than that I made it as outlined.
    Loved the flavor of this smoothie.
