Lactose Free Smoothie - Berry Blast!

Team - It has been a great week! The best way to end a great week is with a fresh fruit, lactose free, smoothie.  Today I canoed for 6 miles in Morrow, Ohio. I love making exercising fun!  It was a perfect day to be outside.  After canoeing, I came back and ran some steps of downtown Cincinnati with a friend.   We decided to stop on the way down and complete a quick TRX workout.  Be sure to check out my TRX 10 Minute Beginner Workout if you're not familiar with Suspension Training.

To sum up my day, I was sweating in the sun all day.  It was a blast, but draining.  I opted out of a protein shake when I got home, but opted in for a Berry Blast (lactose free) smoothie. This total berry combination was the right thing to replenish the nutrients I lost. 

Lactose Free Smoothie - Berry Blast

1. Gather your ingredients:

  • Half of a Banana
  • Strawberries
  • Raspberries
  • Blackberries
  • Lactose Milk - I chose Almond Breeze (40 calories/serving)
  • Apple Juice - I chose Mott's for Kids - (40% less sugar than regular Apple Juice)

You'll also need measuring cup, regular drinking cup and a blender.

 2.  Have your cup and blender close

3.  Pour 1/2 cup of your Apple Juice and Lactose Free Milk into your cup.

4.  Add a handful of all of your berries and 1/2 of a banana. Slice up your banana before adding it and it'll be easier to blend.  Do you like blueberries more than strawberries?  Add more of your favorite berry.

5.  Almost there, looks very patriotic.  Get excited!

6.  Just like Maggie, blend all of the ingredients together.

7.  Lastly, add a strawberry and a straw.  You're ready! Take a sip and enjoy...

If you're having guests over, and have time, premake this drink and place in the refrigerator to chill.

Let me know how you ended your week. Did you end it with a smoothie, dinner with a good friend or some rest?


  1. Your model did a great job of blending the smoothie. You should pay her for her good work. :)
