Recipe Ingredients

Ingredients needed to make a wild blueberry smoothie.
  • frozen wild blueberries– try to find organic wild blueberries, to minimize pesticides and other toxins.
  • frozen mango– Frozen mango cut into chunks is easier to blend.
  • oranges-naval oranges work great here.
  • barley grass juice powder– Make sure to buy barley grass juice powder and not barley grass powder. Barley grass juice powder is basically in a form that is able to be digested by humans.
  • spirulina powder– a good quality spirulina power is preferred for detox purposes.
  • unsweetened almond milk– ideally one without added sugars, gums, or preservatives.

See recipe card below for a full list of ingredients and measurements.

Additions/Substitutions

  • Instead of frozen mango, you can use frozen cherries. Cherries have the sweetness than mangos have, which works here. I like to use half mango and half cherries when I make this.
  • Instead of almond milk, you can use any milk of choice.
  • You can add collagen powder to your smoothie. I like to add 1-2 scoops of Further Foods collagen.
  • You can add hemp hearts, chia seeds, and pumpkin seeds to the top of your smoothie for an extra nutritional boost.
