Smoothies have always been one of my favorites, because it’s a sweet drink that’s healthy. This energizer berry smoothie recipe is extra special, because over the last year or so, I have made it every time I’ve wanted to have more energy. Not only does it taste good in the moment, but if I drink it every day or on a regular basis, I feel more energy throughout my days and I have clearer skin. Although this is purely subjective, the results don’t surprise me considering the ingredients. I think it’s so important to fuel our bodies with foods that come from the earth, rather than a package. Not only are we being kinder to the earth, but kinder to our bodies as well.
You can have this smoothie as a snack, a meal, or pair it with your favorite dish. Pairing it with egg scramble or avocado toast makes for well-balanced, sweet and savory breakfast option. Making it for a 2 PM pick me up energizer is equally effective. One of my favorite times to make this energizer berry smoothie is in the evening as a post-dinner dessert! It’s so sweet and tart and perfectly satisfies a sweet tooth.
This smoothie is intended to be one heaping serving, because it should supply plenty of nutrients and energy to your day. However, if you find that it’s too much, it can be split into two servings, or you can half the recipe.
