Smoothie of the Week: Emperor Blueberry Smoothie


This Emperor smoothie originally appeared in the first issue of the Smoothiemoves ezine, but I'm updating it a little here so that it can be made for 2 people (and I have cut out the expensive MLM "juice")

  • Soak about 6-10 natural almonds in 2 oz. of organic Orange Juice
  • Grind up 2 T. Flaxseed in coffee grinder
Add to the Vitamix canister in the following order:
  • 1 C. Frozen organic Blueberries
  • Ground Flaxseed
  • 1 T. Hemp Protein Powder
  • 1 organic Apple, cored, seeded and cut into segments
  • the Almonds and soak juice
Whirr until smooth.  Eat it like ice cream with a spoon, or if you want to drink it, add more fluid (water or organic orange juice.

This smoothie information is for you-- it's my bias-- so please see your own health care professional before making any health-related decisions. If you found anything useful, intriguing, or have questions, I appreciate your feedback... please use the comment box below.

Smoothie of the Week: Apple-Almond-Blackberry Green Smoothie

Here is another delicious Blackberry Smoothie-- using apple, almond milk and of course, blackberries.

Now, it is possible that the combining of the almond milk and the fruit might pose a bit of a digestion problem for some-- if so, just take a full-spectrum enzyme before, during or after the smoothie... enzymes help with digestion.

Combine the following in your Vitamix (or other) blender carafe:
*Frozen Blackberries
*Tender Greens (Kale, Baby Spinach, Romaine, etc.)
*2-3 Apples (cored, all seeds removed, skin on)
*1-2 C. Fresh Almond Milk (10 soaked almonds per Cup of Water spun up in Vitamix)
*1 tsp. Cinnamon
Whirl up until fully creamy smooth.  Add more water or almond milk if it is too thick.  Mmmm.
