If you are looking for something amazing to drink alongside your breakfast, this Blackberry Almond Milk Smoothie is a great choice. Not only is it a great healthy upgrade on traditional milk, it is a food that is high in antioxidants. What isn't awesome about that?
Making a blended fruit milk like this Blackberry Almond Milk Smoothie is easy to do with any blender. With purchased unsweetened almond milk, you can easily throw this together in just a few minutes to boost up a simple breakfast on the go. Some may even wish to add a scoop of protein or greens to boost the nutrition of this into a great well-rounded breakfast beverage.
Blackberry Almond Milk Smoothie
This really only requires two simple ingredients, but as you can see, there are a lot of options to make this even better. For extra fiber, I throw in a bit of oatmeal. For extra antioxidants and richness, hemp hearts or flax seed can be added. Sweeten with honey or maple syrup to keep it a truly healthy breakfast drink. It can also be made with cashew or hemp milk, which are my favorites. The kids prefer almond milk though, so I make theirs with unsweetened almond milk in the blender and do my own in the single-serve blender cup.
1 cup almond milk
1 cup fresh or frozen organic blackberries
If you are watching your sugar intake, there are several options for sweetening this without adding refined sugar. With the natural sweetness of the berries, you may not even want a sweetener. This is definitely a taste as you go recipe.
I also recommend using a high-powered blender like the Ninja if you plan to add anything like ice or the above-mentioned hemp hearts to the blend. It really makes sure your blackberry almond milk smoothie is smooth.
Run the berries under water, if using frozen berries, let them rest for a little bit before processing. Fresh organic berries will have the most flavor.
Pour the milk into the blender and place the blackberries on top.
Blend the milk and berries together for 30 seconds to 1 minute or until everything is fully combined and smooth.
