Blackberry, banana and mint smoothie


Here it is, another amazing smoothie. This one is blueberries and banana pretty much with a little hint of mint coming from fresh mint leaves. A very refreshing smoothie indeed!!

One important note I want to add is that blackberries are important to get organic. If you go to my health and nutrition link I mention that certain foods are more important than others to get organic. Berries are one of them. If you are on a budget try to save some for organic berries, it does make a lot of difference, and I am not talking just about the taste.

As the weather is getting better I am finding myself making more smoothies.
Not long ago I mentioned a pumpkin spice smoothie, well, that one is also coming soon, I haven’t forgotten, so stay tuned.

Enjoy!!


I first blend the mint with a little bit of the soy milk before adding the rest of the ingredients but you can just blend them all at once if you prefer.

Believe it or not but the mint gives the smoothie a really refreshing subtle flavor. You can omit it if you wish but I strongly recommend you use it.

Blackberry, banana and mint smoothie

Miryam's original recipe

Yield: 4 servings

Ingredients:

1 cup Greek yogurt
3 cups almond milk, more or less if you like
6 oz organic fresh blackberries
2 frozen bananas
2 tablespoons honey, more or less if you like
1/4 cup flax seed meal, optional
Fresh mint

Directions:

Place mint leaves and 1 cup of almond milk in a blender and blend for 10 seconds. Add remaining ingredients and blend until smooth. Serve.



It is high in dietary fiber, manganese, magnesium and vitamin B6. Low in cholesterol, saturated fat and sodium. If you want to lower the sugar content just omit the honey :-) This calculations are based on the recipe giving 4 servings.

  3. “will go on vacation for just 4 weeks :-(”

    Hahaha. I’m pretty sure everyone in the US with two weeks of vacation will hate you for that. Not hate you, but you know what I mean. :)

    But since you’re not going to Europe this year, that means you can save money and have an even more awesome European trip next year!

    And how have you not made banana bread before?! It’s so American. :) Your version looks super healthy and I love that it uses partly almond flour! And no sugar. Good job. :)

    Pretty pictures, too! This is an awesome awesome final post before your break.

    Have a super vacation! I hope you get to bake something and have a little fun.

  4. this looks crazy good.. i love healthy desserts.. so great for breakfast. it’s gonna be like 103 degrees here in nyc, i need to stay in and bake.

    Okay, I’m working on my friday’s favorite things, and I’m talking about Georgetown Cupcake again. It’s soooooooooooo good. You have to try the Salted Caramel and Strawberry Cupcake. those are the best. Red Velvet – a bit dry. Coconut Cupcake is also delicious. Let me know how it goes. Yes, there is one in DC.

  6. I’m so glad that you have a banana bread recipe. I tried it last night, and it turned out really well. I used a combination of GF flours I had in the pantry and added a small handful of dark chocolate chips. I’m so happy to be so satisfied without butter, oil, or sugar. Thank you.

  7. I made this in the week and it was very delicious ! definitely recommend it if you want to follow a healthy diet and treat yourself :)

  8. We have tried this recipe many times in our house, it’s so very good. The bread is moist, sweet and delicious. It can’t be any healthier, so if you’re looking for a healthy dessert, this is the one definitely. Thank you so much for great recipe.
