Oooo who doesn’t love a delicious smoothie? Recently I’ve upgraded my recipe (see original one here) to a chocolate berry mix that the savory crowd will appreciate. I also recently discovered that Swerve makes “Brown Sugar”, and added it to the recipe, it’s so freaking good. So, here’s how you make it:
INGREDIENTS & PORTIONS (for one serving):
Almond Milk – 1 Cup
Non-fat Greek Yogurt – 3/4 Cup
Mixed Berries – 1 cup
Unsweetened Dark Chocolate Chips – 1 tablespooon
Swerve Brown Sugar – 1 tablespoon
Cinnamon – Sprinkle
Combine all ingredients in a blender/Vitamix and blend on higher speed for 45 seconds to a minute. That’s it!
Almond Milk – 1 Cup – 30 calories, 2.5g fat, 1g protein, 1g carb, 1g dietary fiber
Non-fat Greek Yogurt – 3/4 Cup – 90 calories, 0g fat, 17g protein, 7g carb (no added sugar), 0g dietary fiber
Mixed Berries – 1 cup – 70 calories, 0g fat, 17g carb, 0g protein, 6g dietary fiber
Unsweetened Dark Chocolate Chips – 1 tablespooon – 100 calories, 8g fat, 2g protein, 4g carb, 2g dietary fiber
Swerve Brown Sugar – 1 tablespoon – 8g Erythritol Zero everything, made with erythritol
Cinnamon – Sprinkle – n/a
TOTALS: 290 calories, 10.5g fat, 20g protein, 20g net carbs 😮
QUICK TIPS: So I realize the highest carb item on this list is obviously the unsweetened mixed berry blend. If you wanted to substitute this out for a cup of frozen raspberries (6g net carbs), for example, you would lower the total net carbs for this recipe to 14 grams.
This recipe is also a great opportunity to throw in your protein supplement — lately I’ve been using this Chocolate Peanut butter flavor from Garden of Life and I love it. Adding it to the smoothie recipe just gives me more of that chocolate peanut butter flavor that apparently I’ll always crave!!! 😜 TRY IT AND ENJOY!
