A blend of kale, berries, and pomegranate juice creates this delicious Dairy-Free Berry Smoothie.
If you are opposed to a smoothie that is green in color, like my Tropical Kale Smoothie, you will love this Berry Smoothie!
Vibrant in purple and red hues, this Berry Smoothie is naturally sweet and full of antioxidants!
But the secret is the vibrant color and the sweet taste of the berries disguises a serving of greens.
Meaning you can enjoy a smoothie that has the added nutrients that kale and spinach pack, without an overpowering taste of greens or an off-putting color.
This Berry Smoothie is loved by the pickiest of eaters and couldn't be easier to make!
- Juice: Pomegranate juice is key to adding flavor and sweetness to this berry smoothie.
- Greens: Use fresh kale or spinach. Just be sure to remove the hard stems of kale or spinach so that the greens break down easily in the blender.
- Berries: Any blend of fresh or frozen berries work for this smoothie. Blueberries, raspberries, strawberries, blackberries--they are all delicious. I often opt for a frozen berry blend.
- Ground Flaxseed: This is a totally optional ingredient but it adds Omega Fatty Acids and additional fiber. Flaxseed also is a healthy fat and in order to fully absorb nutrients from fruits and veggies, you need to pair them with fat.
- Place the juice in a heavy-duty blender. It is really important to remember to add the juice first to your blender. If you add in the berries and/or kale first, the blender's blades may get stuck on the solids and the smoothie will not be as smooth.
- Add in the berries, greens, and flaxseed, if using, to the blender.
- Blend until the berries and greens are completely broken down.
- Serve immediately, as the ingredients will begin to separate if left for any length of time.

Sounds delicious can diabetes have this drink?
Hi Angela! This is a hard question to answer. There is no added sugar, but you would want to pair this with protein just as you should a piece of fruit to keep your blood sugar stable. Hope that makes sense.
I love a good smoothie for breakfast! This looks so easy and so yummy!
I am always looking for new morning smoothie recipes and this one is a keeper!!!
I remember blackberry season in Oregon. Buckets were literally free for the picking. It always makes me happy to come across a recipe that uses them. I am looking forward to starting this 12 Day GoodBelly Reboot tomorrow!! This smoothie will be in the rotation 🙂
I wish I lived in an area where blackberries were free 😉 But oh how I love them myself. Enjoy this smoothie!
I'm always looking for sneaky ways to get greens in my husband! I think he'll love this and so will I. We could both use a belly reboot, too 🙂
This is a great way to get a reboot and some greens for sure Alisa!
