E4: Low Glycemic Mixed Berry SmoothieJump to recipe
Looking for a filling and energizing breakfast or lunch option? I’ve got you covered! In my new Youtube Episode, I walk you through how to make my favorite smoothie staple that I’ve been making for years: The Low Glycemic Mixed Berry Smoothie! It tastes like a berry milkshake and is packed with amazing nutritional benefits. This smoothie is high in fiber which helps support gut health, has amazing anti-inflammatory properties, and leads to a very steady glucose response. I tested this recipe on my Continuous Glucose Monitor and it only slightly increased my blood sugar–a small 13 point rise. I hope you love it as much as I do!
My Low Glycemic Mixed Berry Smoothie combines frozen riced cauliflower, a sulfur-rich veggie that can support healthy hormones, phytonutrient-rich berries which have anti-inflammatory benefits, coconut milk creamer for texture, and a few other fiber-rich, high-protein ingredients that will keep you full for hours.
The vanilla protein powder that I like to use in this smoothie is Be Well By Kelly’s Vanilla Grass-Fed Beef Protein Isolate, sweetened with blood sugar-balancing monk fruit. It only has three ingredients and offers a complete essential amino acid profile. Use code BRIGID to save money on your order.
I also add fresh ginger root which adds a delicious punch to your smoothie. Ginger root has an active component called Gingerol which supports immune function and lowers chronic inflammation. If you don’t love fresh ginger root, try adding a dash of ground ginger for similar anti-inflammatory benefits.
