This smoothie will legit only take you 5 minutes to whip up. And you likely have most (if not all) of the 5 ingredients it calls for already on hand in your kitchen:
What You Need
- frozen mixed or triple berries (most grocery stores will have a variety of this already bagged together in the freezer section).
- frozen banana
- vanilla protein powder
- almond milk
- chia seeds
And all you have to do is combine these ingredients together in your high-speed blender and blend up til it’s smooth. So easy. So delicious.
Healthy Smoothie Tips
- Freeze Your Fruit: Cut up and freeze bananas in Stasher Bags, meal prep containers or Ziplocs so you have it on hand when you want to make a smoothie.
- Amp Up the Protein: Choose a protein powder with a clean label (HERE are some of our faves).
- Thicken It Up: Rolled oats and chia seeds are great ways to add nutrients and a little thickness to your smoothie.
- Blend to Perfection: Invest in a high quality blender (we LOVE our Vitamix).
What Protein Powder is Best for Smoothies?
Eeeeverybody has their opinion on protein powder. We talk a lot about our favorite protein powders in this Guide to the Best Protein Powder. However, taste buds, dietary restrictions, and definitions of “clean eating” are so different for everyone!

Personally, we love SFH Pure Whey Vanilla Protein Powder for whey protein and Garden of Life Raw Organic Vanilla Protein Powder for our vegan protein option. They taste great in smoothies and both have clean ingredient labels.
What Protein Powder Should I Use for This Smoothie? Great news is, ANY vanilla protein powder will work for this smoothie. You do you and use your favorite protein in this triple berry smoothie! We support you completely.
Don’t forget about the smoothie toppings. If you’re anything like us, you don’t skimp when it comes to toppings. Here are some of our favorites:
- Homemade peanut butter
- Homemade granola
- nuts: almonds, walnuts, cashews
- seeds: flax or chia
- fresh fruit: berries, banana slices, etc.
