Mixed Berry Smoothie or the best kind of ice cream craving fix
I am already 31 weeks pregnant. Yes, it is going fast. And all I am craving for is Ice cream. The thing is I never eat ice cream from the store. They contains way too much added sugar and also milk upset my stomach very quickly. But someday I don’t have the time to make my own ice cream and the best ice cream craving replacement when pregnant is definitely a thick smoothie. It is the strawberry season in New Zealand so it is the perfect timing! I love to buy LOTS of fresh strawberry in summer and froze them for the year. I use frozen strawberry mainly in smoothies but also in muffins. Look how big are the New Zealand strawberries and super sweet!
This mixed berry Smoothie is using unsweetened vanilla almond milk – I used Almond Breeze in NZ. I love this almond milk because it is light, dairy free and low calorie – only 16 kcal/ 100ml. Plus, the vanilla almond milk don’t contains added sugar and it adds a delicious vanilla flavor to smoothies.
The texture of this mixed berry smoothie is thick and creamy – very close to a berry ice cream. I found this smoothie really satisfying too and I did not reach the pantry after drinking it. I simply added a bit of dried goji berries to naturally enhance the sweetness. Goji berries contains a low amount of natural sugar and are the best super food to add into smoothie. If you don’t have goji berries you can replace them by dried cranberries but make sure they don’t contains added sugar – they usually contains a lot of it to hide their bitterness. And here it is a little video to help you make this smoothie in a minute!

Milk alternatives: if you don't like almond milk this recipe works well with any milk like cow milk (if you eat dairy) or dairy free milk like oat milk, soy milk, rice milk or coconut milk. Almond milk is your best option for low calories and no aftertaste milk.
Berries : I used a combo of frozen strawberries and raspberries but any combo of berries works well like boysenberries, blueberries.
