High Protein – Low Sugar Berry Smoothie -240 Calories

It took a while to get this recipe just right.  I use whole milk organic yogurt. Fat reduced or fat free dairy has a lot of chemicals (to make up for the fat), added sugar, and is also highly processed.  Also plain yogurt is the way to go here because fruit flavored yogurt has added sugar, preservatives and calories. 
This smoothie is great for breakfast or lunch on the go and totally fills you up. I use organic whole frozen berries that is a blend of strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, and black raspberries.  You can usually find a blend like this very easily. Buying frozen organic fruit and veggies is also more economical and lasts longer. 

Ingredients:

In order of adding to blender:

1/2 cup of water (no need to add extra calories or sugar)
1 cup whole milk plain yogurt – I use this:

yogurt

 

 

 

 

1 cup of frozen mixed berries
1 tablespoon of pure vanilla extract (optional)
1 teaspoon of pure maple syrup

Directions:
Add the ingredients above in order to a blender. Pulse until smooth.

blend

 

You can double this recipe and have some for later or just to make ahead.  Pour blended smoothie into a quart size zip top bag and put into a freezer bag. It will last in the freezer for one month and in the refrigerator for 2-3 days.
