Upbeat Blueberry & Raspberry Smoothie (Waitrose) By @SpectreUK
You may think just before bed is a funny time to try a “Dairy Protein Smoothie” energy drink, but I’ve had a busy day. I also didn’t sleep well the night before so a pick-me-up before bed to help me write a blog about what I’m writing about seemed an ideal idea. This blueberry and raspberry flavoured Upbeat Smoothie has 20g of high quality protein. Good for building muscles after a workout, if not for a nightcap. I don’t usually drink or eat blueberries, as I’ve never been much of a fan. However I do like raspberries and figured the flavours would mix well together with the milk. Plus there was the added bonus, or not added in this case, of no bananas! Some smoothies have added banana which instantly distracts from any other ingredients in the flavour of a smoothie ruining every smoothie it’s added to in my opinion. Here no added banana is fine by me… In taste this drink is undoubtably smooth, with the milk taking most of the tartness from the blueberries and raspberries reminiscent of a cool creamy raspberry and blueberry ripple. I reckon these mixed together would also make a great ice-cream too.
