I have a confession.
It involves some blueberries & raspberries, to be exact.
I've never really liked them.
Until one day, I decided to come up with a berry smoothie recipe.
And then, I decided– you know what? I'm going to give those berries a real try.
And then I hated myself for waiting THIS LONG to give them a "real" try.
Because now I have a new found love for these berries.
I've even incorporated them into my snacks this week.
This berry smoothie recipe is one of my favorites for a quick and easy breakfast. Even Zach likes it! Bonus points for picky eaters.
Berry Smoothie Recipe
Zach loves strawberries and chocolate, so I thought this berry smoothie recipe would be a great way to incorporate some of his favorites into a sweet treat. It's made with strawberries, blueberries, and raspberries– berry fantastic!
What I love about this berry smoothie recipe is that it's easily versatile and you can make it your own.
For instance, instead of using regular milk, I opted for vanilla almond milk for extra flavor. You can even use dark chocolate almond milk if you want to turn the chocolate level up a notch, although I think the Ovaltine does an amazing job on it's own.
Thank you Ovaltine for sponsoring this recipe! Ovaltine is available in three varieties: classic malt, chocolate malt, and rich chocolate. They each contain no artificial flavors or sweeteners, they contain 12 vitamins and minerals, and are a good source of Iron, Zinc, and Vitamins A, C, D, & E. You can incorporate Ovaltine in your chocolate recipes in place of cocoa powder, or whatever you normally use to add a chocolate flavor.
You can have this berry smoothie recipe any time of day, I think. I like to enjoy it for breakfast when I'm on-the-go in the morning or for a late afternoon pick-me-up.
The fact that it contains protein, vitamins, and antioxidants is a plus for me.
