All you need is a bag of frozen mixed berries (I recommend organic … here’s why), fresh or frozen pineapple, an orange, and some almond milk.
I made the almond milk myself with my Vitamix. It’s pretty easy to make if you have a Vitamix or BlendTec. Here’s a good page that shows you how to do it. If you’re working with a regular blender, just make sure you soak the almonds in water for 8 to 12 hours. You can buy almond milk from the store too … choose the unsweetened kind though if you go this route.
In addition to being low-cal, this berry orange smoothie recipe only has 4 grams of fat … plus it has 5.5 grams of fiber, which is a big bonus.
I usually toss in handful of spinach or kale (I used kale for this one) but you can skip this step if you’re so inclined.
Here’s the recipe …
