The Berry Boost Smoothie is currently the office favorite! Filled with antioxidants, omega 3 fatty acids, nutrients and fiber to give you the energy boost you need. Perfect for breakfast, afternoon snack, or sweet dessert. This smoothie recipe is one of the recipes that were developed as part of the OmniBlend office smoothie bar. The aim is to encourage the whole office team to make healthy smoothies that are super easy to make.

We use frozen packed berries from Euroberry, which makes it easy and convenient to make cool, thick and creamy smoothies with no fuss. Especially on those days where you’re looking for a quick snack or boost to get you through the day, having frozen supplies ready to go makes it easier to opt for a healthy option. This is also great for the family, making it easy for everyone to make their own smoothie, even the kids! The recipe makes about 400ml which can be divided into two portions for the kids. Just remember you’ll definitely need a high-powered blender when using frozen fruits.

We really love how this blends so beautifully in a matter of seconds with our favorite office accessory, the blender machine! The secret behind making the perfect smoothies is not only what you put in, but what you make it with as well. A good smoothie machine is a must to get the best results! Buying frozen fruit and keeping them in the freezer not only makes the process easier, but you can also enjoy fruits like berries out-of-season all year long.

The best part about making your own smoothies is that, you also get to play around with the ingredients, perfect way to sneak in a veg or two. In this recipe I used dried cranberries for sweetness since we’re in berry mode, alternatively you can use honey or any other preferred sweetener.

To reduce sweetness or if you’re not really a banana fan then you can substitute the banana with some frozen pineapple. Pineapples are high in vitamin C and promote better skin. Improve your health in the most enjoyable way!

Ingredients:

  • ½ C Blueberries
  • ½ C Blackberries
  • ½ C Milk
