Creamy Berry Smoothie – Dairy Free

Creamy Berry Smoothie - Dairy Free & Paleo

Smoothies are so versatile, they lend themselves to personal tastes and creativity easily.  The only tricky part is ratios.  My husband and I prefer ours thick and creamy.  Sometimes when I wing it, it turns out tasteless or unremarkable.  This morning’s smoothie was perfect!  Use it as a base and sub any fruits you have on hand.  I am avoiding blueberries temporarily for my son who’s blood testing says his body doesn’t like them….so blackberries and raspberries today!  I always add in spinach as it gets those wonderful dark greens in w/ no effort, and my palate  (nor my kids) can ever detect them!  A perfect breakfast loaded with all sorts of goodness for your body!

  • ¼ cup frozen raspberries

    Take out the nuts and the milk and add 2 more large handfuls of spinach, one kiwi, and the juice of one large ruby red then you'll have my typical morning or afternoon meal :-)

  1. [...] We love smoothies in in our house.  What better way to get lots of servings of fruits and veggies in one,  and very tasty fell-swoop?!  My kids think it is an ice cream, and I further the deception by freezing leftovers in popsicle molds…sneaky Mommy!  They beg me for the popsicles!  We have several favorite variations we plan on sharing with you!  Today’s recipe was originally inspired by Cara’s Cravings.  Enjoy!  You might also want to check out the other smoothie recipe on my site:Berry Breakfast Smoothie!
