Happy Tuesday, everyone! Phew, it was another long one for me today! Who knew vacation at home could be so crazy?! However, I can always make time for a new Bender’s Blenders creation. This one came after my nighttime workout and drinking it was a welcome way to relax and settle down for the evening…while catching up on some blogs, of course!
Bender’s Blenders: Berry Classy
We’re keeping this smoothie classy – berry classy. It’s a delightfully refreshing nighttime (or anytime) treat that is best enjoyed by savoring every sip in a wine glass. Fresh flowers not included 😉 So sorry!
Ingredients (serves 1):
- 1/2 cup unsweetened chocolate almond milk
- 1 tbsp. soy protein powder (I used Whole Nectar)
- 1 medium ripe banana
- 1/4 cup frozen blueberries
- 1/8 cup fresh blackberries
- 1/8 cup fresh raspberries
- Foam topping (optional)
Combine ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Pour into a wine glass and top with cappuccino foam if desired. Drink while catching up on your favorite blogs 😉 and looking extremely classy. Better yet – looking berry classy.
I wasn’t sure what I would think of the addition of the unsweetened chocolate almond milk with the fresh and frozen fruit. It tasted a little different than your average fruit smoothie – a little creamier and a little less sweet. Overall, it was an interesting new combination and I would make it again. But of course, I had to bring in another taster to verify that it was good enough for the blog.
I think it’s clear from the expression on his face that we have one happy camper. The unintentional smoothie mustache was just a bonus 😉 Oh yeah, we have a new “Got Smoothie?” campaign in the works…stay tuned for that one – I can already tell it’s going to be in magazines everywhere!
