Berry Smoothie Recipes, 3 Ways

Summer is almost gone but this doesn’t necessarily come with a melancholic mood. Choosing to be thankful for everything I experienced during the last months, getting the best of what’s left from this splendid season and looking forward to embrace what Autumn has to give, this provides peace of mind and helps me focus on the things I love to do.

The farmers’ market still abounds with fresh berries and buying them in batches to eat, freeze and cook with is a favorite mid-August activity. During my last trip to the countryside I actually went to an organic blackberry farm and got to pick the fruits myself.

It’s a lovely experience for someone that spends most of the time in the city, with little access to open air plantations and just a few aromatic herb pots to call a garden! Having a house with a garden is actually a dream of mine and although might sound like utopia for now, I’m pretty sure it will happen at some point in the future.

So, about these vibrant colored smoothies! It was  the best solution for having the fruits fresh rather then freezing them. I focused on berries and other fresh fruits rather than stuffing the smoothies with lots of other ingredients, so they are actually more of a fruit puree. I love all these tones of pink and magenta, they are a feast for the eyes (one that I always miss during winter) but I also know that each of them denotes a high concentration of antioxidants.

Berries are one of the best summer fruit choices when it comes to fortifying your liver activity and your immune system, while also preparing your body cells for the cooler months to come.

They have both antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, as they’re high in vitamin C and anthocyanin phytonutrients, and also detoxifying properties due to the presence of the mineral manganese and fiber.

Their rich phytonutrient combinations support the health of cardiovascular system, the bone structure (especially due to high concentration of vitamin K), and regulates the blood sugar levels.

Enjoy these smoothies! And if you’re looking for some more inspo when playing with smoothie ingredients, check out my Sun Salutation Mango Smoothie, my Breakfast Smoothie Recipes, or my Berry Protein Smoothie.

    Hi there,

    I was just wondering if these lasted long in the fridge? For example, if I were to make it the night before I was planning to drink it, would it last? They look gorgeous by the way!

    Thanks!
