Alisa’s Notes: I tested this recipe and was impressed with its fresh taste. As someone who almost always makes smoothies thick, sweet, and spoonable, like healthy milkshakes, I was a bit surprised, yet delighted, by the cleansing, refreshing vibe of this beverage. Though I confess that I liked it best with a couple drops of vanilla stevia added. The image below is from my kitchen, using a blend of frozen strawberries and wild blueberries. Note that I have added this recipe to Alisa’s Recipes since I’ve personally trialed it and recommend it!
- 1 cup So Delicious Dairy Free Unsweetened Coconut Milk Beverage
- Handful fresh parsley
- 3-4 sprigs fresh mint
- 1 cup mixed berries (fresh or frozen)
- 1 tablespoon vegan protein powder
- Add all ingredients to a blender.
- Puree on high until smooth.
- If desired, garnish with fresh mint.
