This creamy berry smoothie is easy to make and a great option if you want something super satisfying and lower in sugar.
I’ve kept the recipe high in protein and good fats with a hit of antioxidant-rich berry goodness via Bare Blends Bare Berries freeze-dried berry powder.
I used Bare Blends Vanilla Bean WPC in this smoothie because it gives a beautiful creaminess. WPC stands for whey protein concentrate, which is similar to a whey protein isolate (WPI) but is slightly higher in lactose and fats. WPC contains less protein gram for gram than WPI, but the protein is still rapidly absorbed by the body. High-quality WPCs (such as the Bare Blends ones) also contain additional compounds that are not found in the WPIs. For example, WPCs usually contain higher levels of immune-boosting immunoglobulins.
I like to top the smoothie off with some raw cacao nibs for crunch and an extra sprinkling of Bare Berries powder. It should come out thick and creamy when blended in a high-speed blender with just enough water to bring everything together. You could also serve it in a bowl, topped with granola, coconut flakes and some fresh berries.
