Berry smoothies are delicious and healthy snacks, packed with blood-nourishing antioxidants from dark berries and balanced protein. The combination of protein and carbohydrates is essential for stabilizing blood sugar, which is particularly important in conditions of Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS), weight loss, and for managing stress levels. When making a smoothie, thaw frozen fruit or combine with warm milk to balance temperature and ease digestion.
1 cup blueberries, raspberries, blackberries or combination
2 cups almond, hemp or goat milk
1 tablespoon flaxseed
1-2 tablespoons whey, rice or egg protein powder
In a blender, combine all ingredients and mix at low speed. Pour into glasses and serve. Makes 2 generous servings.
