Berries are among the most nutritious and low-calorie foods available. Strawberries contain only 32 calories per 100 grams while the same value for blueberries and blackberries is only a little higher at 57 calories and 43 calories over 100 grams.
They are one of the most versatile and delectable fruits and rich in natural antioxidants such as anthocyanins, ellagic acid, and resveratrol. In addition to preserving your cells, these phytochemicals may help lower your risk of infection and boost your immunity.
Milk’s nutritional profile is impressive. It is an excellent source of vitamins and minerals such as potassium, B12, calcium, and vitamin D. All of these nutrients are necessary for healthy, strong bones and reduce the risk of osteoporosis.
In addition, it is a powerhouse of proteins and includes several fatty acids, such as conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) and omega-3 fatty acids. Protein is required for numerous essential bodily activities, including growth and development, cellular repair, and modulation of the immune system.
Our recipes begin with a belief that minimal, high-quality ingredients are the secret to ultimate smoothies. Thus, keeping the list at 5 (including mint leaves for decor) for a delicious beverage makes this triple berry smoothie recipe a winner.
Berries: Typically, we buy a bag of frozen mixed berries from the supermarket. But you can also throw in any berries you have on hand.
The combination of strawberries, blueberries, and blackberries is our favorite. They taste exquisite when mixed, with a creamy, smooth texture and a heavenly fruity flavor.
Milk: You can be creative with the types of milk you use in this berry smoothie. We went with regular whole milk to add protein and creaminess. Plant-based milk, such as almond or coconut milk, is also a great option to take the flavor to the next level.
Honey: The drink gets a little sugar from the ripe berries, but a few tablespoons of honey gives it an extra boost of wholesomeness. It’s sweet, rich, and bursting with berry flavors.
Ice: A smoothie should be creamy and chilly. Add some ice cubes to quickly thicken it and give it a frosty texture.
Mint Leaves: This herb lends a touch of freshness to balance out the richness.
Storage and Freezing
The triple berry smoothie can be stored in either the refrigerator or freezer. Stored in airtight containers, the drink lasts for 4 – 5 days in the fridge.
Without ice, this smoothie can be stored in the freezer for up to 3 months. Divide the portions into multiple small Ziploc bags instead of a single large bag, so that you don’t have to thaw the whole container.
When removing the smoothie from the refrigerator, you will find the texture has separated, which is quite normal. Simply stir the drink with a spoon and it will be ready for use.
