Blackberry Blend Smoothie

by Wai Lana

If a picture is worth a thousand words, I don’t need to tell you how delicious this gorgeous drink is. Not too sweet, this light blend is perfect for those who want fiber without too much bulk. These antioxidant-rich fruits fight heart disease, skin conditions, and certain forms of cancer, especially prostate cancer.

Yield: 1 Juice
Cooking Time: 5 Minutes
Prep Time: 5 Minutes
Ingredients: 
  • 1/3 cup blackberries (fresh or frozen)
  • 1 frozen banana
  • 1/3 cup water
Instructions: 
  1. Blend ingredients
  2. Boost: If you'd like to make this a meal, add a scoop of protein powder and a teaspoon of maple syrup.

Benefits: Helpful in lowering cholesterol and preventing it from oxidizing (hardening) in your arteries, this blend is a good friend to your heart. These fruits help keep not only your complexion clear and vibrant, but also your brain. In fact, the antioxidants in this recipe help prevent oxidative damage to the brain, promoting good memory and keen mental function.

Tip: I always include some white grapefruit pith for extra vitamin C and bioflavonoids, which are most concentrated there. You’ll find it easier to hand-squeeze the grapefruit because then you won’t have to clean your juicer. If you like the visual effect, blend the fruits individually, then layer them.
