So what’s in this Berry Smoothie Recipe?

  • Banana – A great source of potassium, folate, vitamins, and fiber which are all good for heart health. A high fiber diet comes with lots of health benefits including maintaining a healthy weight, a healthy gut and it also keeps things… regular.
  • Cucumber – A high water content and low-calorie food. Eating cucumber regularly helps with hydration, while also being high in vitamins and minerals. This makes it an ideal, refreshing addition to lots of smoothie recipes.
  • Raspberries – Rich in antioxidants and vitamins! Antioxidants are great for getting rid of free radicals in the body, caused by pollution and unhealthy, processed foods.
  • Blueberries – The delicious little superfood. Full of antioxidants, with the added benefit of being anti-inflammatory and high in nutrients, making blueberries a great addition to your daily diet, and a no-brainer ingredient for a berry smoothie recipe!
  • Oat milkOne of the creamier options for plant-based milk that contains no saturated fats. The shop-bought varieties are often fortified with vitamins and calcium too.
  • Flaxseeds – A great source of Omega-3 fatty acids, or ‘good’ fats. This superfood may reduce your chance of getting cancers, having a stroke, diabetes, and heart disease! That’s quite the list for such a tiny seed.

Berry Smoothie Recipe Variations and Options

Added protein:

If you’re looking for a post-workout protein boost then adding a scoop of plant-based protein to this berry smoothie recipe works well. I’d DEFINITELY recommend this vanilla creme flavor vegan protein from The Protein Works.

I used to get protein from The Protein Works before I was even vegan. I’ve always liked their protein as it has a really creamy milkshake type vibe. 

Adding protein to smoothies is a great idea for a post-workout energy boost instead of just protein alone. You get all of the extra nutrients, and it will fill you up for longer! The vanilla creme flavor tastes great and doesn’t overpower the taste of the smoothie at all!

Milk options:

Oat Milk – I love oat milk in this berry smoothie recipe because it’s so creamy. But, if you’re looking to cut down the calories then you can swap it out for water – it just won’t be as thick.

Other plant-based milk like almond and soya will also taste great in this smoothie, but oat is my all-time favorite.

Flaxseeds:

Not a fan of flaxseeds but are still after similar nutritional benefits? Milled hemp or chia seeds are great alternatives!

Most of the ingredients for this berry smoothie recipe are easily available at the supermarket. But, if you live out of town then Flaxseeds may be a little harder to come by, so I’ve added a link to my favorite ones below.

If you can get them delivered online I’d recommend buying in bulk as they’re such a useful addition to a vegan diet. I use them in a lot of my recipes as they’re my favorite source of egg substitute when mixed with water.

If you’re in the market for a new smoothie maker then the options can sometimes be a little overwhelming – there’s SO MANY!!

I’m a bit of a blender geek so I’ve done a silly amount (verging on obsessive?) of online research when it comes to this topic. I’ve added three of the highest-rated from Amazon.com below in three different price brackets to show you three of my favorites.
