My Favorite Berry Smoothie!

My husband and I love starting the day off with smoothies! They are quick and easy to make, and we enjoy coming up with our own unique concoctions. Smoothies can also be quite filling. After drinking this berry blend, I am left feeling nourished, energized, and ready to take on the day!

Berry Smoothie Ingredients

This is one of my favorite berry smoothies! It has a bright, sweet flavor with a bit of earthiness from the addition of wheatgrass. Although wheatgrass is an acquired taste, it has amazing health benefits due to its high chlorophyll content. I find that the date syrup and vanilla powder add just enough sweetness to balance out the flavor of the wheatgrass, but a touch of maple syrup also does the trick! The cashew butter adds a little bit of protein and a luscious creaminess to this smoothie. While you can use fresh berries, I love the icy, thick texture from frozen berries. If you only have fresh berries on hand, including a few ice cubes will give you that same frostiness. This recipe is very customizable, so feel free to substitute with your favorite berries and butters!

Berry smoothie recipe

Serves 1

  • 1-1.5 cup of frozen berries 

    • I used a mixture of raspberries, strawberries, blueberries, and blackberries
    • You can buy fresh berries and freeze them or just pick up a bag of your favorite berry blend

    • 1 teaspoon of acai berry powder

      • Frozen acai works well too!

    • 1 cup of almond milk 

      • Cashew milk and coconut milk are also delicious in this smoothie!

    • 1 tablespoon of cashew butter

    • 1 teaspoon of wheatgrass

      • I used powdered wheatgrass in this particular smoothie, but my husband and I use fresh wheatgrass quite frequently. Keep in mind that you will have to blend your smoothie longer with fresh wheatgrass. 

    • 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla bean powder

    • 1 teaspoon of date syrup

    Place all of these ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Add water or some additional almond milk if you prefer a thinner consistency.

    I hope that you enjoy this smoothie! 

    Kitties love smoothies too!
