Mixed berry smoothie

This mixed berry smoothie is healthy, delicious and super simple to put together. Making your own homemade smoothies is much better and allows you to make your own preferred variations.

Buying a blender is one of the best kitchen equipment pieces you can purchase especially if you decided to start eating healthier. We couldn’t live without our blender. We use it every day pretty much. This Mixed berry smoothie is one example.

Drinking smoothies allow us to incorporate the daily fruits and some of the vegetables needed for the day. Adding a handful of fresh spinach or kale won’t kill the taste of your smoothie and these veggies add powerful nutrients.

Smoothie variations are endless. For the most part, which ever type I make, I incorporate flax seed meal for its content of Omega-3’s and its high soluble fiber, which is great for lowering cholesterol…not that our cholesterol is high. If yours is, try incorporating flax seed meal to your diet every day. Your cholesterol will drop…trust me on this.

There are a few smoothie variations you can find here. They are all great. Try incorporating Greek yogurt or protein powder to it. Using frozen fruit gives the smoothies their thick consistency, which is what I like.

Let me know if you try it and if you added any other ingredients to it. I am going to start trying other variations so if you have any ideas pass them along :-)

Enjoy!

  2. WOW – this salad is exactly what I crave for my lunches – will be giving this one a try!

  3. Wow, what a beautiful salad!!  Gorgeous photos too :)

  4. What a nutritious and filling salad! I love in particular that coconut cream dressing.

  5. This salad is GORGEOUS!  I absolutely love all the nutrient filled veggies and love black rice.  Pinned!

  6. I made this salad last night for dinner and it was delicious. Thank you! I did substitute wild rice as I didn’t have black rice.

  7. Tasty looking salad! The dressing sounds awesome…especially the coconut and curry. 

  8. Butternut Squash is just the best thing on the face of the planet, no joke! 

  9. Wow does this sound delicious! And it’s such a gorgeous salad – it would be perfect on a holiday table!!

  10. I feel the same way about Thai curries, so am thinking this dressing (and the rest of the salad!) would be right up my alley!  Beautiful photos, as usual.

  11. Great salad for the winter. This year the butternut squash and pumpkin I’ve used has been VERY tasty. Some years, probably due to growing conditions, the hard squashes are not as flavorful.

  12. This looks yum! Just one question, is there a substitute for the curry paste? I’m in the process of making the salad but I don’t have the paste in hand. =(

  13. Wow! This salad looks delicious. Looking forward to trying this out!

  14. I made this and was so excited.  It was pretty disappointing :(
