Berry breakfast smoothie

You can make your own almond milk — See instructions here — for this smoothie or you can buy a pre-made almond milk from the supermarket. For a thicker smoothie, add a couple of tablespoons of natural or Greek style yoghurt. If you don’t have fresh berries, frozen berries work extremely well in this recipe too.


  • 2 cups fresh or frozen berries
  • 1.5 cups almond milk
  • 1 banana, peeled
  • ¼ cup slithered or flaked almonds
  • 2-4 dates, pitted or 1-2 tablespoons honey (to taste)
  • Ice (optional)


  1. Blend all ingredients until well combined.
  2. Divide into two glasses and serve immediately.
