Berry Blossom Protein Smoothie

BY ELIZABETH BORELLI

Serves 1
Preparation time: 5 minutes

If you’re looking for a mid-morning protein boost, this rich blend of berries and botanicals will do the trick.

Whip it up in a blender in 5 minutes or less, include ½ cup of ice and frozen berries for an extra thick and chilly treat. If you like a bit of green, a cup of raw spinach or kale adds extra fiber and nutrients without changing the flavor. At ½ the sugar of most fruit smoothies, this antioxidant-rich drink weighs in at about 200 calories, yet the protein and fiber keep you satisfied long after the shake is gone.

• 3/4 cup plain Greek yogurt or silken tofu.
• ½ banana
• ½ cup raspberries, blackberries or blueberries, fresh or frozen
• 3/4 cup brewed Berry Blossom tea (room temperature or cooler)
• Stevia to taste
• ½ cup ice (optional)
• 1 cup raw spinach or kale (optional)

Combine all ingredients in your blender, puree on high for 2 minutes, serve immediately and enjoy!
