This may not be the most exciting smoothie, but it’s healthy, filling, and delicious. I play off a basic formula when creating breakfast beverages, and this smoothie is no exception. There’s not much of a story with this recipe, unlike some other smoothies, but just a guide to building your own smoothie and how to mix and match ingredients.
With flavorful mixed berries, there’s no need for excess sweetener. A tablespoon of agave syrup does the trick. Other sweeteners in my smoothie repertoire include honey and maple syrup, both of which are all-natural and multipurpose.
I usually go for whole milk, because it’s a great source of protein and calcium, especially as I mostly eat vegetarian. However, I wanted to try my basic smoothies with soy, just to make sure they had a great taste, and this one passes the test. However, if you’re a dairy drinker, feel free to replace the soy milk with your favorite milk.
Note: If you use fresh berries, (which are coming into season now!) you will need extra ice.
