I AM GOING TO TRY PEAR AND BANANA SMOTHIE, WHEN I ARRIVE HOME.-12 Jun 2015

by CHEF RIDER

This smoothie had the honor of being my first-ever homemade smoothie! I found it to be delicious and very refreshing. I did not have any frozen raspberries so I used frozen "mixed berries" instead. At first taste, I thought that the smoothie was not sweet enough, but then as I continued to drink it, the flavors of the fruit and the tang of the yogurt really came through. A delicious combination!-11 Jun 2001

I did not care for this (was way too fruity) but my 3 year old daughter loved it. It was a great healthy treat for her and the extra saved well in the fridge for the next day.-15 Sep 2002


Give me a fruit smoothie any time of day and I will most gladly accept. I love an ice cold smoothie, loaded with fruit and packed with nutrition. It’s obvious isn’t it – the best way to get your daily intake of vitamins?

A berry smoothie of course. I used stop by Jamba Juice to buy one of their delicious smoothies, especially during those hot summer months. My most frequently purchased menu item is their Banana Berry Smoothie. I love it!

I’ve tried many of their other smoothies but I always end up returning to the banana berry. I love how it’s a bit sweeter than some of the other more tart options and I also favor the combination of bananas and blueberries in smoothies.

Rather than going there to get smoothies I just started making them at home, it’s more convenient and cheaper too. When I’m sick I still request a Jamba from my husband though =).

If you want to make this healthier (say for breakfast) you can replace the frozen yogurt and sherbet with some raspberry Greek yogurt which has been frozen, it won’t be the quite the same as Jamba’s version but still very delicious.

Also, if you don’t want to purchase both raspberry sherbet and frozen yogurt I’d probably go with the raspberry sherbet and maybe add in some vanilla yogurt if you have it on hand. Enjoy!

Common Questions

They are! Especially if you keep the ingredients simple and healthy. Berry smoothies pack in a ton of antioxidants and nutrients, and this one in particular also has protein and probiotics, making it even healthier.

Yes! Bananas add such great flavor to smoothies, but they also help to make a thick and creamy texture. Plus, bananas give a burst of energy while supplying us with potassium and vitamin C and helping to aid digestion!

Any berry you like! I used a mixed berry blend that features blueberries, blackberries, and raspberries in this recipe. Strawberries can be added as well. Enjoy all of them together, or try them one at a time for a variety of flavors.


A sweet, creamy smoothie, like the recipe I have to share with you today, makes for the perfect breakfast. It's delicious, energizing, refreshing, and full of nutrients to get you through your morning.

This smoothie is particularly special because of its very high antioxidant content. The raspberries and strawberries, like all berries, contain a huge amount of anti-aging antioxidants. Then add a touch of two of the most healing spices available to us and you boost the flavor and healing properties even further. Cinnamon has the highest antioxidant strength of all food sources and is several hundreds more potent than any fruit or vegetable!

You can even add wild blueberries for a twist on this recipe and even more of the critical antioxidants we need for our health. It's really just an added bonus that this smoothie tastes so wonderful!

Enjoy this smoothie for breakfast, lunch or a snack. It's also a perfect addition to the 28 Day Cleanse from my book Medical Medium.

  • Pinch nutmeg (optional)
  1. Place the coconut water or water and bananas in a blender and blend well.
  2. Add the frozen berries and spices and blend until smooth. Pour into a big glass and enjoy the anti-aging benefits!

What are the health benefits of banana blueberry smoothie?

If the banana blueberry smoothie has a pretty color when mixed and looks appetizing, it is equally good for health and loaded with various and many beneficial vitamins. Let’s take a short overview of the health benefits of our smoothie.

The Blueberry

Blueberry is the champion in terms of vitamins C content . As such, its incredibly rich in antioxidants composition makes it a significant ally in the fight against certain cancers.

So, the consumption of blueberries in the form of juice would limit the proliferation of certain cancer cells, in particular those of the breast, prostate, intestine or stomach. As such, cranberries, raspberries, blackberries and strawberries are all foods to combat this type of disease.

In addition, the consumption of blueberries would help to limit the risks of cardiovascular disease (because they are rich in flavonoids), and would protect the body from the onset of diabetes.

The almighty Banana

Banana unfortunately does not have a very good reputation when it comes to talking about any “diet”. Yet, its antioxidant profile is very powerful, and using just bone one for your breakfast ensures the body to hold on without nibbling or craving other food until lunch!


How to Make the Mixed Berry Banana Smoothie

Making the Mixed Berry Banana Smoothie is not difficult at all. You can add the ingredients to your blender one-by-one and then blend until smooth.

You can blend until you achieve the perfect consistency for your smoothie. Pour it into a glass and enjoy! If you are headed out, you can pour it into a reusable container and take the smoothie with you.


One of my father's favorite anytime indulgences is making a banana smoothie: one ripe banana, some of our homemade plum jam, plain yogurt, and honey. In the late fall, he'll swap out the jam for ripe kiwi-fruit.

You can add any kind of berry you would like to this Banana smoothie.

A ripe banana adds most of the naturally occurring sugars you need, and it always seems you have a lonely remaining banana, making it a great candidate for a banana smoothie.

Personally, I'm a blueberry banana smoothie or strawberry smoothie fan. Actually, I can't remember ever meeting a smoothie I didn't like (have great plans for the papaya ripening on the counter).

Do you have a favorite smoothie recipe? If so, please let us know in the comments.

In the meantime, what follows is a super simple recipe for either a strawberry or blueberry banana smoothie.


What You&rsquoll Need to Make the Mixed Berry Banana Smoothie

Making the Mixed Berry Banana Smoothie is simple. Prep time takes less than 15 minutes when you have the right ingredients. The ingredients you will need to prepare this smoothie include:

  • Frozen Mixed Berries. Grab a bag of frozen mixed berries to use in your blender when creating a homemade smoothie.
  • Banana. You will only need one medium-sized banana to add to the blender to create this smoothie.
  • Greek Yogurt. The Greek yogurt makes the consistency of the smoothie a bit thicker.
  • Almond Milk. Almond milk is the perfect liquid to use in this smoothie because it adds flavor and is lower in calories than regular milk.
  • Honey. Adding a touch of honey is the perfect way to make this smoothie naturally sweet.

If you have these ingredients, you can quickly prepare the Mixed Berry Banana Smoothie with ease.


How to Make a Smoothie

A smoothie is so much more than blended fruit. It's an art with all of its different elements blending perfectly together. Just in case these 29 smoothies aren't enough, here is our guide to making the perfect smoothie.

Pick your fruit.

We chose strawberries, blackberries, raspberries, and bananas to be our base, but any combo of fruit is great. Make a tropical smoothie of pineapple, mango, and banana or add blueberry and peach to switch it up a bit for a summer twist. Aim for about 3 cups of fruit.

Fresh or frozen fruit?

For smoothies, frozen fruit is best. It blends up thicker than fresh fruit and gives you a really cold smoothie to enjoy after blending. If you don't have frozen fruit, freeze your fresh fruit for 30 minutes before blending or add about 1 cup of ice and blend until smooth!

Add a thickener.

We use unsweetened Greek yogurt in our smoothie, but peanut butter, almond butter, or vanilla yogurt are all great options. Traditionally about 1/2 cup is ideal. If you prefer thinner smoothies, you can either lessen the amount of thickener or skip it all together.

Choose a liquid.

Almond milk is great for the added nutty flavor, but coconut milk pairs well with a tropical smoothie and gives a richer, creamier flavor. Whole milk or fruit juice also work well. 1 1/4 cup of liquid makes the perfect consistency for our preference. If you skipped the thickener, use less liquid as well.

Throw some add-ins in.

Add some spinach or kale for additional nutrition or flax seeds for omega-3s. Flavors like fresh mint, vanilla extract, cinnamon, or honey will take any smoothie to the next level.
