Dairy Free Berry Smoothie Ingredients
This is a light and refreshing berry smoothie without yoghurt and is packed with antioxidants, calcium, plant-based omega 3 and fibre! You will need:
- mixed berries (frozen) - filled with antioxidants, fibre, vitamin C and so much more! Berries are a powerhouse food. Using frozen fruit in smoothies makes them super creamy and refreshing!
- banana (frozen) - banana contains fibre, complex carbohydrates, vitamin B, potassium and magnesium.
- flaxseed meal (also known as linseed meal) - flaxseed meal is an excellent source of plant based omega 3, insoluble fibre and protein!
- tahini - if you follow a dairy free diet then tahini is an excellent food for you to incorporate into your diet. Why? Because it is a really great source of calcium! Not to mention healthy fats, magnesium and protein.
- spinach - because I'm a sucker for hiding vegetables in everything, spinach is a wonderful low starch vegetable that provides a wide array of nutrients including iron and folate. Blended up in a berry smoothie, you can't even notice that it's there!
- coconut beverage - but you could use any type of plant-based milk here like almond milk, cashew milk etc. Be mindful that a lot of coconut beverage products contain added sugars and gums - I've gone with a brand that is literally just coconut, brown rice, sea salt and water.
How to Make
Making this plant-based berry smoothie is as easy as blend and serve! Here's how:
How to Meal Prep Smoothies
If you love meal prep and would like to add this berry smoothie to your next meal prep session, then here's how:
- Add all of the solid ingredients for a single smoothie to a sealable bag (I LOVE these Silicone Pouches for this purpose).
- Place the silicone pouches into the freezer. When you're ready to make your smoothie, simply empty the contents of the pouch into the blender, top with your choice of milk and blend!
I would personally add nuts and seeds when adding the milk, rather then freezing them. This includes nut and seed butters and meals as well (like tahini and flaxseed meal).
