DH and I have been having these for dessert. We're both maintenance level, and we're now also counting WW points (for accountability) so here is our yummy treat.
1 cup unsweetened almond or coconut milk (we use the aseptic quart container kind, from Trader Joe's)
1 cup frozen berry blend (we like Costco's but TJ's has a good one too)
Sweetener of your choice to taste
Psyllium husk or chia seeds - optional, but adds fiber and thickens the smoothie
Put the almond or coconut milk in a blender, add the psyllium husk or chia seeds if using (about a tablespoon of either one seems to be about right) and blend til well mixed. Add the frozen berries, blend til smooth, then add your sweetener to taste, and blend again.
We split this between the two of us and it's less than one WW point! Also berries are on the lower carb list, so we enjoy them daily - so many good antioxidants and vitamins in them too!

If you want to sneak in some veggies you can add baby spinach leaves and won't be able to taste them. I used to add cottage cheese to my smoothies for thickening and protein... Sounds weird but I really liked it.

This sounds great. I have all those ingredients, too, for a wonder. Thanks!
