How to Make a Berry Smoothie
You may be asking how to make a smoothie recipe. It’s a great question. And the answer is simple: It’s easy to make smoothies!
Begin by combining all the ingredients in a blender. Allow it to sit for a moment, to allow the frozen bananas to soften slightly.
Then blend the ingredients until well combined. Check the consistency of your berry smoothie. I don’t like my berry smoothies to be too thick. If yours is, add a little more almond milk. If it’s too thin, add additional ice and pulse again.
You can add sweetener, like Stevia, Agave Nectar, Maple Syrup if necessary based on your preference for sweetness.
