Smoothie of the Week: ABC Smoothie


I was with a group of people last week talking about refreshments we would serve after a presentation we were hosting. We wanted the said refreshments to reflect upon our support for healthy living, so out went coffee, Black Forest cheese cake, and the like.

 Someone suggested fruit trays. Another pointed out that people get as much of a glycemic surge with several pieces of fruit as they do with a cookie.

It got me thinking about fruity smoothies... and today's recipe is for a smoothie that is sweet, without being cloying, but made with blackberries and mostly greens. There is no banana-- just an apple and an avocado. It is smooth, flavourful, and creamy delicious... isn't that what one wants in a smoothie? Oh yes, and extrememly healthy!


Put the following in the carafe of a Vitamix and whirl up together until smooth and creamy:

  • 2 C. frozen organic Blackberries (or other low glycemic berries)
  • 1 handful fresh organic Cilantro
  • 1 small, very ripe Avocado
  • 1 4" piece of fresh Aloe Vera (if you have it- and peel off/discard the outer layer of skin)
  • 1 small organic Apple, cored
  • Stevia to taste (if desired)
