This recipe by Julie Van den Kerchove of Julie's Healthy Lifestyle makes a great breakfast or dessert to share, and it also happens to be sugar-free! Perfect as a healthy sweet treat or a post-workout snack. The smoothie is loaded with antioxidants and very high in vitamin C thanks to the berries – great to boost your energy levels and protect you against colds and the flu. You could pour it into popsicles as well to turn it into a summery ice cream treat!
1 can (1 ½ cup) unsweetened full-fat coconut milk
3 cups frozen berries
1. Add the coconut milk, frozen berries, sea salt and vanilla to the blender. Sweeten with a few drops of Stevia (or any other sweetener of your choice). I also like to add a tablespoon of hemp seeds for extra protein and omega-3-fats.
2. Blend until smooth.
3. Pour into two serving bowls, and top with extra berries and your favorite granola.
JULIE’S TIPS & TRICKS:
This smoothie will stay fresh for at least 2 days in an airtight container in the fridge.
For a fun flavor variation, replace the frozen berries with other frozen fruit of your choice like pineapple or mango.
Coconut flakes, cacao nibs and coconut yogurt make great toppings too.
