Here’s a delicious smoothie for all you berry lovers. The three berries that comprise this smoothie recipe are blueberries, raspberries, and strawberries. All three combine for an antioxidant powerhouse.

The primary free radical-scavengers found in all three berries are vitamin C and manganese, which are critical antioxidants for protecting the body’s tissue from oxygen-related damage. You’ll also get a good serving of heart-healthy fiber from this smoothie.

I prefer using frozen (organic whenever possible) berries in my smoothies, but fresh are just as good. This recipe doesn’t mandate all three berries, substituting in pineapple or mango is just fine. Now to the recipe for this tasty treat. Enjoy!

    it was a little watery for my taste. It is more of a juice, not a smoothie. Not very tasty either

      Hey first timer,

      Sorry to hear you didn’t enjoy this smoothie. You’re right, it is a little runny. I’ve since updated the recipe.

      Cheers,
      Ryan

      • Jody #

        I add 1/4 cup of oat meal to mine with the triple berries and about 1 cup of fat free milk and it is delicious.

        • Ryan Carmody #

          Sounds delicious, Jody.

    I make this smoothie, but I also add blackberries and a few cranberries. Apart from the cranberries, all the berries are fresh and locally sourced. All I add is low fat milk and that’s my breakfast pretty much everyday.

    • Ryan Carmody #

      Very nice, James. Blackberries and cranberries are fine additions.

  3. Christie #

    I used orange juice instead of water or milk. Loved it

    • Ryan Carmody #

      Very good, Christie!

  4. Steph #

    • Ryan Carmody #

      You know you crafted a healthy smoothie when it keeps you full until lunch. Chia seeds, flax seeds, coconut and almond milk were excellent add-ons, Steph.

    • Ryan Carmody #

      Very nice, Paige. Yes, frozen yogurt and sorbet are good thickeners.

  7. Julia #

    can you use one cup of yogurt instead or the one cup of milk?

    • Ryan Carmody #

      Sure, substituting the milk with yogurt is a nice twist on this recipe, Julia.

    I would like to know how this will effect my blood sugars.

  12. Steve Wilson #

    How will this smoothie effect blood sugars? Will it spike or will it gradually rise?

  13. Type 2 guy #

Not sure what the GLycemic index or glycemic load but thought I would chance it as a type 2 diabetic. Thanks for the help!!!

  14. Question? #

    Can I add on heavy whipping cream also? And how much?
    Thanks,
