Add fresh blueberries, flaxseed meal, unsweetened almond milk (I prefer the vanilla flavor) and vanilla whey protein powder to a blender. Luckily my husband loves his protein shakes even though he isn’t low carbing. It can be very useful to steal the odd scoop of powder every now and then! Blend until smooth, then taste for sweetness. Depending on your personal preference and ripeness of the blueberries you may not need to add any sweetener! If the smoothie does need sweetening, I use the Da Vinci brand of sugar-free syrup – as it is zero carb! It is available in many flavors, I just use the plain one.
Oh and if you don’t fancy messing up the whole blender for a smoothie then an immersion blender works well too.
It also works really well with raspberries! The nutritional data is very similar and you don’t get little bits of blueberry skin!This blueberry smoothie is full of protein but it is also #lowcarb ! Click To Tweet
