Ingredients You’ll Need

Raspberries – Use frozen ones here for an icy sweetness, perfect for smoothies. 

Almond milk – Unsweetened, low calorie is best, still deliciously creamy. You could also use oat milk, almond milk, or coconut milk.

Greek yogurt – Low fat and THICK!  Choose an unsweetened one. Substitute with coconut yogurt for vegan and Paleo version.

Lemon – Juicy and zingy, roll it a few times on your kitchen top before juicing; it’s much easier to squeeze.

Spinach – You can use any regular or baby variety; just make sure it’s washed and ready to go.

Ginger – An excellent anti-inflammatory to add to your diet, great for digestion, and it tastes fresh and invigorating! Use fresh root that has been peeled.

Is a Berry Smoothie Healthy?

Berry smoothies are healthy and tasty!  On top of that, they are full of pretty colors, containing anthocyanins and flavonoids, providing great antioxidants to our bodies.

Berries and spinach are a good source of Vitamin C, essential for good health and a strong immune system. 

And that creamy Greek yogurt will keep you full and energized with protein – it’s a winner!

Other Ingredients You Can Use to Keep This Smoothie Low Calorie

If you had other frozen berries you wanted to use – you can!  Blueberries, strawberries, and blackberries are all sweet, low fat, and contain similar nutritional benefits to raspberries.

Thus, add different greens if you like – kale would be great and gives you a dark green leafy veg perfect for this healthy smoothie.

Want it extra chilly? Then, add a scoop of ice cubes and whizz up some even fresher flavors!

What Milk Can I Use?

There are so many to choose from. So, how do we exactly know which one is best?

Simple, all the non-dairy kinds of milk are good for smoothies, and so many are fortified, which means you can get an extra boost of nutrition.

Did you know lots of non-dairy milk have added Vitamin D, in particular?  If you work inside or feel you don’t get outside during the winter, boost this essential vitamin!

You can use hemp milk, walnut, hazelnut, cashew, oat, soy, coconut milk so choose your favorite.

You can make your own non-dairy milk easily, and it tastes so good!
