Chocolate & Berry Smoothie

Chocolate & Berry Smoothie

Today I went for a walk… and found lots and lots of blackberries! Berries in general are low in sugar so shouldn’t affect your blood sugars too much (though I had to go steady on them for the first couple of months – only just reintroducing them).

Anyhoo, this smoothie was with 350mls almond milk (I use blue diamond unsweetened), a generous handful of berries, two tablespoons of desiccated coconut, about a tablespoon of coconut butter (I use this one – fats are known to slow the release of any carbs/sugars into your system), a teaspoon of cinnamon (also good for blood sugars), and a tablespoon of raw cacao powder… and it was yummmmy! :-)
