This berry-filled recipe — perfect morning, noon or night — is packed with antioxidants, protein and micronutrients

I try to keep my macros at 30 percent protein, 30 percent fat and 40 percent carbs because it helps keep my blood sugar level — and that’s why I developed this vanilla raspberry smoothie. The raspberries are high in vitamin C, the acai berry powder is a superfood that is high in antioxidants and fiber, the spinach is jampacked with iron and calcium, and the almonds are rich in healthy fats, protein, magnesium and vitamin E. I whip up this smoothie anytime I need a satisfying and delicious snack.

Vanilla Raspberry Smoothie

1 scoop low-carb vanilla protein powder

1 cup frozen raspberries (The trick is to unfreeze them 80 percent of the way.)

1 tbsp acai berry powder

handful of spinach

10 almonds

water (to reach desired consistency)
