Smoothies are a perfect way to start off a busy morning, and this super berry smoothie is no exception.

Breakfast will be ready in about 2 seconds flat (well, okay… maybe 5 minutes) and you’re out the door with a travel mug full of nutrients. Can’t beat that with a stick!

Super Berry Smoothie in a clear glass.

Lately, I’ve been revisiting the idea of using protein powders in smoothies for the simple reason of convenience. Sometimes I don’t have time to peel that hard-boiled egg before I head out the door. I know that sounds crazy, but I think we’ve all been there. Those days when you swear on somebody’s grave that just breathing one breath in the wrong direction will make you later than you’ve ever been. You know what I’m talking about, right? I seem to be having more and more of those days lately, so I’ve started relying more and more on protein powder again.

Not that there is anything wrong with it per se, but let’s face it. Protein doesn’t come from nature in powder form. So I really struggle with this one. What are your thoughts on protein powder?

  2. This was GREAT! It was my first time putting Protein Powder in my Smoothie. Delicious!

    1. graciouspantry says:

      Glad you enjoyed it!

  3. Have you ever thought of adding eggs in your smoothie? I know some people are scared but I have been doing it since I was about 9 years old and never had a problem (I’m now 37). So have all my brothers and husband. You can’t taste the eggs and you still get your protein.

    1. graciouspantry says:

      Usbrasil – Yes, but raw eggs rob the body of B vitamins. So I tend to avoid it.

  5. will try this one tomorrow morning. If you don’t want to use protein powder you can try 1/4 cup of cottage cheese Blended you can’t even taste it and it really is filling. This tip was given to me by a trainer I spoke to.

    I’m not sure. They belonged to my in laws. Sorry!

  13. How woudl you make it without the protein powder? I have a child who can not have any dairy product. Thanks!

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Just don’t add it. It will be fine.

  14. I made this for breakfast today. Berry good! Thank you!

  15. In some recipes that call for ingredients to blended in a regular blender…..
    Will it work the same if I use my high powered blender?

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      For smoothies, most definitely!

  16. Kim Newton says:

    I’m new to this whole clean eating and using protein powder because I’m trying to get fit so I made this today because I am used to eating smoothies . I had chocolate protein powder and I didn’t have flaxseed so the only two differences other than that it’s very good the only change I might make next time it is maybe try it with vanilla like you suggested I just went with what I had and then I may do a little less blueberries I’m not a big blueberry a person so I made up my strawberries and do a half a cup of blueberries and see if that take the little bit better that’s just a preference thing the other than that thank you for this recipe

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Kim – My pleasure! 🙂

  17. Kim Newton says:

    do you have any clean eating recipes that include pineapples in a smoothie at all pineapple is my favorite

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Kim – Sure do! If you put “pineapple smoothie” into the search box at the top it will bring up all my pineapple smoothies. 🙂

  18. Brooke Stamm says:

    Hi I absolutely love these posts and all of these delish smothies!! It’s really helping me transit into a much better diet, and losing weight. Thank you so much, and please don’t stop posting!!

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Brooke – My pleasure! I’m so happy they help!

  19. Do I have to add protein powder?

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Emma – Nope. 🙂

  20. I like the idea of using cottage cheese in place of the powder, but what about the vanilla? Could you put in some vanilla extract? And how much so as to not over do it?

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Sharon – Sure! I would say about 1/2 to 1 tsp.

  21. I use a serving of a non-fat plain unsweetened greek yogurt in place of protein powder, most around 24 grams protein per serving. And gives the smoothie a nice creamy texture. If I’m avoiding dairy then I use pasteurized egg whites.

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Jenny – The yogurt is a good idea! I remember when I took a nutrition class at my local college, the dietitian teaching the class told us that eating raw eggs depletes the body of Vitamin B. I’ve never done any real research on it, but for some reason, that always stuck in my head. Might be worth looking into if you use them a lot.

  22. Just made this, however I had some frozen bananas and I added one to it. It made a LOT! But really creamy and tasty! Thanks – here’s to our good health!!

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Josie – Glad you enjoyed it!

  23. Looks so yummy! Beautiful color! Is it possible to use sweetened almond milk and leave out the vanilla extract? I typically make my smoothies with a 100% juice apple or a berry blend, frozen fruit (depends on what I’m craving that day), flax/chia seed, a little coconut oil and vanilla protein powder. Don’t usually make milk-based smoothies but want to change things up a little so bought vanilla almond milk to try… Thanks!

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Candace – Sure! But most of the sweetened almond milks are not clean. So it just depends on what your goals are. But flavor-wise, it should work fine. Enjoy!
