Your very basic ingredients are:

Frozen Berries

Nutbutter

Water

And if you like some extras, like I do… Maca powder and maple syrup. And here is how:

  • 1/2 cup frozen blueberries
  • 1/2 – 1 cup water (depending on how liquid you like your smoothie)
  • 2 tbsp peanut butter
  • 2 tbsp almond butter
  • 1/2 – 1 tbsp maple syrup (or more, depending on how sweet you like it)
  • 1 tsp maca powder (a superfood that is know to give you a lot of energy!)

P.S: 1 cup = one small glass (about 2.3 dl)

Mix everything in your blender and enjoy. You can keep this beautiful smoothie in the fridge for a couple of days! Just looking at the colour it already makes me happy!! 🙂

If you want to go very basic and you don’t like peanut butter – go for almond butter. Please, please make sure your nutbutter really only contains 100% nuts!! Check the label. Don’t buy any rubbish. You don’t want any added fats (like palmoil) any salt or sugar in your nutbutter. You want only nuts.

  • 1/2 cup frozen berries
  • 1/2 – 1 cup water
  • 4 tbsp almond butter
  • 1/2 – 1 tbsp maple syrup

And the good news for Swiss people – almond butter, peanut butter and maple syrup are available in every bigger Migros from the Alnatura brand, organic certified. Frozen berries you find in any store. Maca powder – that one I always order online from Iswari, as I trust this brand. Of course, as we are slowly heading into spring, I encourage you to do some foraging or go to a market on the weekend and buy fresh Swiss berries. But for now (we just got 30cm of snow this morning) the frozen varieties have to do the job.
