Smoothie Recipe: Berries Squared

Berries

This is a killer 4 berry smoothie. When you use a powerful blender like a Vitamix, it breaks down the tiny seeds of the berries so well that you don’t realize they are still in there. You don’t have to worry about them getting stuck in your teeth or tummy, and the seeds contain many amazing nutrients! Enjoy.

We have posted very similar smoothie recipes to this one in the past, but it is worth repeating since this month we are talking a lot about antioxidants, and focusing on things you can do daily that equal cancer prevention, instead of focusing on just the search for the cure.

High ORAC Score Smoothie

It is actually pretty easy to make a high ORAC score smoothie these days. This recipe came about because of a new product just arriving to the U.S. market that we are trying out called: Gula Java Matcha (more details on this at a later date). Consuming high ORAC score foods is important for optimal health.

Why Spinach and Kale do not go into my smoothies.

Smoothie Recipe

When I make a smoothie, I look at it as a meal of supplements and super foods that are less likely to be consumed as “regular food” on my dinner plate. I don’t have anything against putting fresh spinach and kale into a smoothie, but I prefer to actually eat those foods vs. blending them into a liquid.

Dinner and Dessert Smoothie

Every so often I like to make a smoothie for dinner. When I do, I keep the recipe a little more basic than what I would do for breakfast or lunch. I don’t consume whey protein on a regular basis, I prefer plant based proteins, but when I make a smoothie at the end of the day, I will opt for whey protein because of the repair and sleep benefits it offers. This recipe was part dinner and part dessert. I had a large arugula salad as my main course, followed by this dessert smoothie.

The Anti-Radiation Tonic Smoothie

Recently I had to have X-rays and an MRI in the same week. Even though the MRI doesn’t use radiation (it uses magnetic imaging), just being in a facility that does multiple kinds of imaging heightens my awareness to radiation exposure. Whenever there is an occasion when I know a friend or family member has been exposed to higher than normal levels of radiation from airplane travel, X-rays, CT scans, cigarette smoke, or manufacturing, I try to remind them that combating exposure to radiation with food and supplements is something to think about.

Cranberries and Banana Smoothie

I like to use cranberries in smoothies year-round. Cranberries inhibit the ability of E. coli bacteria to adhere to the linings of the urinary tract, but have benefits that go far beyond urinary tract health. Cranberries contain a powerful cocktail of antioxidants supporting cardiovascular health, tissue repair, anti-aging, and healthy inflammatory responses. They are full of polyphenols, organic acids, vitamins and minerals as well.

Green Smoothies for Kids

Green smoothies are perfect for getting essential nutrients into a toddler who won’t stop playing to eat or any child who turns their nose up at fruit and vegetables. It is important to include a source of protein or healthy fats to prevent an insulin spike from the high carbohydrate content. I use whole milk yoghurt, but avocado, coconut oil, flax and chia seeds make great alternatives.
