A thick and dreamy bowl celebrating summer’s harvest, this five-ingredient smoothie combines a mix of seasonal berries, ripe and speckled banana, nut butter, chia, and creamy dreamy nut milk. A complete meal in itself, I serve my smoothie topped with extra fresh berries, a melty dollop of nut butter, and raw nuts and coconut flakes for added crunch.
Berry Sunshine Smoothie [serves 2]
2 ripe bananas, peeled and frozen 1 cup mixed summer berries, frozen 2 tablespoons nut butter of choice 1 tablespoon chia seeds 1 cup dairy free milk
In a high speed blender, whiz all ingredients until very smooth. Smoothie will be on the thicker side, ideal for pouring into your favorite bowl and munching on with a spoon. To make your smoothies sippable, add an additional 1 cup milk while blending. Divide evenly between two bowls or cups, serve, and enjoy!
