Almond Berry Banana Yogurt Smoothie

The Berry Breakfast Smoothie That Will Help You Lose Weight

Take advantage of Summer's crazy-cheap strawberries and blueberries and stock up so you can make this deliciously smooth yogurt smoothie. The fruit adds natural sweetness, and the yogurt makes it rich and creamy. The almonds add healthy fats, fiber, and protein to keep you full, and with a good blender, you won't even notice that they're there.

For just over 350 calories, 9.2 grams of fiber, and 15 grams of protein, this makes a delicious and filling breakfast smoothie to enjoy if you're trying to lose weight.

Almond Strawberry Banana Yogurt Smoothie

If you use frozen fruit, you can skip the ice cubes. Also, this smoothie is vegan, but feel free to substitute regular yogurt.

3 ounces soy yogurt
1 cup unsweetened soy milk
12 raw almonds
3 ice cubes

I buy frozen red berries and make smoothies almost every morning - I often replace the milk with vanilla soy milk, which gives a bit of protein and a delicious vanilla flavor. Tomorrow I'm trying with almonds!!

I really want to make this, but my blender died yesterday. :(

Anon: I actually use less than a cup of almonds, a banana, and whatever else I have lying around. And I also use a bit of the left over water if it isn't creamy enough. Or, if you want dairy in it, you could use some milk or yogurt (or rice milk, etc). Experiment!

I would add spinach! (Like Bambi said.) You can't taste the flavor of the spinach, and it's like having a salad at breakfast!!! Easy, delicious way to get in greens.

That is a great idea to add raw almonds; never thought of that.

Asche - Yes, I've heard people soak the almonds overnight, but I actually love the slightly crunchy texture the raw nuts give. But if people like their smoothies to be more creamy, soaking the almonds is a great idea. Thanks for that tip!

Loveyoumeanit: I have no idea, actually. When I soak almonds, they stay intact. It's not like with other things, such as quinoa, where the outer coating comes off. Soaking them makes them just soft enough to be able to "juice" them. Also, using almonds in this way adheres to the raw foods diet. It's a way to have "dairy" without actually consuming dairy. I googled this topic and couldn't find any concrete answer. Maybe Fit knows?

Asche--when you soak the almonds and blend them, do you still get all the healthy fats?

I do this for breakfast, but differently. If you soak almonds overnight and then blend them with the fruits, you don't need yogurt. Soaked Almonds, when compressed in a food processer, etc, make a really creamy, frothy almond milk. Blend this with bananas, strawberries, etc for a yummy, low-fat smoothie. You can also just soak almonds, blend them, and then strain out the pulp in a cheese cloth. You are then left with an almond milk that you can drink or cook with. So I don't waste the pulp, I blend it with other veggies to make a really great spread.
