This Berry Delicious Smoothie is the Perfect Post-Class Snack

November 27, 2016

Chances are that you’re dying for something delicious, healthy and energizing after celebrating a carb-coma worthy Thanksgiving and working hard in your first post-Turkey day Bar Method class. We get it — taking challenge options, staying in good form and pushing your limits for an entire hour is truly hard work.

Since we often get questions about healthy snacks (which inspired Burr’s research into low-sugar suggestions), we reached out to our friend, author and fellow Bar Method addict Candice Kumai for an easy to make smoothie recipe that you can whip up in seconds once you get home.

Not only will the ingredients help bring you major internal health benefits, but Candice loves this satisfying drink for what it can do for your outside too. She says, “Beauty is an inside job. This is the perfect drink when you’re fighting a cold and for pesky wrinkles. To feel great and look gorgeous, get on that blending. It’s #SmoothieTime!

Ingredients (this smoothie recipe serves 3):

  • 1½-2 cups  unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 cup frozen strawberries
  • 1 cup frozen blueberries
  • 1 cup frozen raspberries
  • Toss in some blackberries
  • 1-2 teaspoons spirulina
  • 1 tablespoon probiotics/acidophilus (or a scoop of yogurt if you’d like!)

Directions:Combine all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Serve immediately. Do you have a smoothie recipe you swear by? We’d love to learn about it in the comments!
