Berry Smoothie Recipe: Green Thickie
This antioxidant loaded berry smoothie recipe has a variety of fibre rich berries. It is more on the thin side as it doesn’t contain any filling fruit such as mango or banana. If you prefer your green smoothie thinner, this is a great choice for you. It could be referred to as a ‘Thinnie Thickie’! It is still a complete meal though and due to the amount of fibre in berries will keep you going for longer too. The leaves I used had a fairly strong bitter taste which is why I included more sweetner than I would do normally so feel free to adjust this to suit your own tastes.
Benefits of this Berry Smoothie Recipe
All berries are full of antioxidants which are great at protecting your body from inflammation and damaging free radicals. Studies have shown that just consuming half a cup of mixed berried per day helped improve cognition and motor performance. This can really help if you suffer from swelling or allergies.

- 1 Cup Water
- 1 Cup Oat Milk (or any other dairy free milk e.g. rice, soya, almond, hemp coconut drink or raw nut or seed milk)
- 1 Cup Strawberries
- 1 Cup Blueberries

- 2 Tablespoons Sesame Seeds
- 2 T Agave Nectar
- ½ Cup Desicated Coconut
- 1 Cup Spinach
- Blend the ingredients in the order listed.
- Blend the ingredients a few at a time so that your blender can cope with the work, unless you’ve got a high powered blender, then you might be able to add them all in at once.
- If it gets too thick, add more water as necessary.
- If your blender has made the smoothie too warm, you can either cool it down in the fridge or freezer, or add some ice cubes to it which may make the recipe thinner. You could also use frozen fruit which keeps it cool while blending but may make the recipe thicker.
