Start your morning with an equally delicious and nutritious icy Berry Cabbage Smoothie. This treat of a meal is made with only four ingredients and is ready in 5 minutes!
You’re only 4 ingredients and 5 minutes away from this refreshing, icy, nutritious berry cabbage smoothie! This berry milkshake-tasting smoothie is made with cabbage, mixed berries, oj, and a dash of cinnamon. And with only 5 minutes of prep time, it’s perfect for those hectic mornings when you’re rushing out the door. Even if you oversleep (happens to the best of us), you have time to sneak this into your morning!
These are the kind of quick and easy breakfast meals we’ll be enjoying during the 21 Day Vegetarian Reset! This 21 day program kicks off on January 1st and is a no sugar, no meat, and no dairy food “reset.” I took everything I learned in my studies as a nutritionist to formulate a program that will help you stop depending on sugar and unhealthy meals, and instead show you how easy nutritious food can be! If you’re tired of feeling like you don’t have time to cook healthy meals, are too tired to stick to a diet regime, or miss having boatloads energy, this program is for you.
Because we’re all busy during the week, you’ll find that the weekday breakfasts are quick and easy to make and plan. Weekend breakfasts are more traditional, with recipes that include heartier ingredients and a bit more cooking. The recipes include fun and unique smoothies and other simple meals (like these Mediterranean Stuffed Sweet Potatoes)! Anyways, join us on 1/1!
Ingredients in this berry smoothie recipe
This mixed berry smoothie requires only four ingredients. Don’t worry, the berries totally overpower the cabbage flavor, so the smoothie tastes sweet and fruity!
Chopped Red Cabbage
First up, begin with 1 cup of chopped cabbage. This ingredient thickens up the smoothie while also adding Vitamin C, zinc, copper, phosphorus, and magnesium — all vital nutrients for a healthy diet!
Next up are the berries. Use 1 cup, fresh or frozen. I like to go with frozen for an icy and refreshing smoothie, but fresh is delicious too! By including berries, we get not only a delicious flavor, but also antioxidants, blood sugar support, anti-inflammatory benefits, and loads of fiber!
Add liquid to the smoothie by using 1 cup of orange juice. This is a great way to add nutrient density while also sneaking in extra flavor! We all know orange juice is high in Vitamin C (just 8 oz contains over 65% of the RDI!), but did you know it’s also good for your kidneys and heart?
Last but not least, this smoothie is complete with ¼ teaspoon of cinnamon. This spice is super beneficial to blood sugar and supports heart health! It also tastes great, so we consider that a win-win.
How to make a berry cabbage smoothie
To make your smoothie, simply add all of the ingredients to a blender and blend! If using fresh berries, you may want to add a bit of ice to get a frostier smoothie.
