A recipe then
It's an easy one; and a nutritious one and requires five minutes and a blender. No knots. No excuses. No explanations.
It's also simple, sexy, and clever.
Berries and chocolate are like Fred and Ginger, quite a beloved pair. Protein powder, hemp seeds, and greens to make this smoothie especially nutrient-dense. The combination of banana and nut milk make it oh-so-creamy.
I like to dress it up a bit when I make it at home, with maybe a few berries or a pinch of bee pollen sprinkled on top.
Know it's just as tasty, and you're just as sexy, whether you happen to drink it from your husband's coffee mug, your toddler's sippy cup, or in your water bottle on your way to the office
Wishing for you the happiest of Wednesdays

I love smoothies, and have one for my breakfast most mornings. I am always on the look out for some new ideas ! x
I love a smoothie after a good workout. Berry ones are my favorite cos there’s the extra benefit of all those anti-oxidants.
This smoothie sounds very nutritious! I will take a note of it. I’m allergic to nuts so almond milk may not work for me haha but will modify to suit my personal dietary situassie. 🙂
This will be my post-gym smoothie! Thanks for sharing the awesome recipe Allison! Can’t wait to try!
Super delicious and healthy looking! I can’t start a day without a smoothie 😀 Berry smoothies ar my favourite ones. I have used cacao nibs too but never mixed them with berries – definitely have to try that combo!
I should probably start eating/drinking healthier. And this looks like a good start as it’s really easy to do and I’ve no talent whatsoever in the kitchen. lol This looks great! Thanks! xoxo

This both looks and sounds delicious! And really quite healthy too, especially compared to the stuff I tend to drink!
I love smoothies. I often have one for breakfast or a snack if I’m in a rush as I find them so quick, easy and filling. Perfect for summer time too!
This sounds delicious! I’m not keen on protein smoothies as the ones I have tried haven’t been great, but this one sounds so fruity and definitely something I would love to try!
What an amazing smoothie. You captured it amazingly. Would love to blend this up for a daily smoothie!
I haven’t tryed it but in pictures it is looking delicious so now I will try it.

This looks absolutely delicious and so refreshing for Spring. I need to totally make more protein smoothies, so this is going on my must make list.
Oh, I love a good smoothie recipe! I am always looking for different smoothie recipes to try, I usually drink one each morning because I need something I can carry around with me when I’m walking through my house attempting to get ready for work while doing so many other things lol.
OMG, that berry smoothie looks so good!!! I totally love berry-filled anything
Your smoothie looks really good. I love berries and kale has a bit of a bite to it, but I will give it a try. I usually use spinach in my smoothies but I can make a change once in a while.
Such a vibrant colour for a smoothie. I’ve never been big into smoothies, not quite sure why really x
Oh now you’ve done it! I need to find some kale soon and try this out! Thanks for sharing!
Love my smoothies and this one looks fab x
My daughter loves healthy smoothies and makes them all the time so she is always looking for new recipes, especially ones with protein in them! Thank you for sharing x

Now that’s a smoothie! It looks really good. Perfect for summer.
This looks really nice, sadly I can’t face thick drinks and I know I wouldn’t be able to swallow a sip.
This blueberry chocolate smoothie looks so delicious! I love the combination of blueberry and chocolate…I wouldn’t have thought to do that. Also, lots of healthy ingredients. Hmm, maybe I’ll have to make this for breakfast tomorrow.
This really does look so good I think I am going to have to try it thanks for sharing
My oldest loves his smoothies everyday and I often get to reap the benefits because he almost always makes a bit too much for just himself. I think I’ll pass on this recipe so that we – i mean he – can give it a try! 🙂
This recipe sounds so awesome.I’m going to try it.Thanks for sharing.
I definitely need to start making more shakes like this over summer, always so delicious!
I like a good smoothie. It fills me up and it is really good for my health. I love the berry combination in this smoothie too. I have a different brand of protein powder but that’s okay. I will make this smoothie for breakfast tomorrow.
I love berries and I think smoothies are a brilliant way to add fruit to a diet.
As a busy mom of 2 toddler, I’m often looking for an easy way to get my daily servings of fruit and veggies. I’ve found smoothies to be my go-to breakfast options and this one looks like a terrific one. I would even toss in some spinach leaves to get some greens.
I haven’t proactively made any smoothies using berry and chocolate, but this one has me quite intrigued. I tend to find berries a bit tart, but the chocolate seems like it will tone it down. Yum!
I love that you compare berries and chocolate to Fred & Ginger! Such a perfection comparison and a great recipe too.
I love love love a good smoothie! It seems like the perfect healthy option for breakfast on the go.
Thanks for the recipe! It looks so healthy & filling. Great breakfast idea for busy people!
You make this sound so appealing and I am not usually one for Smoothies!
Each time visiting your blog I’m inspired! Healthy choices first! Smoothies are always the best option!
I’m so making this. I love smoothies, but if I can make a healthy one and save myself money on it, I’m in!
I love berries, I just wish they weren’t so expensive here at home. This is a lovely recipe, I sure am going to try this out soon. Hopefully, my little one will like it, too!
Yum! Smoothies are my favorite go to meal! Especially now with nursing.
