This super energy-boosting Mixed Berry Smoothie is perfect for a quick nutritious breakfast on the go! Loaded with fresh wholesome ingredients, naturally gluten-free and easily made vegan!
Say hello to this nourishing mixed berry smoothie! Creamy, rich, naturally sweet and absolutely worth waking up for! I've been drinking this energizing concoction for weeks and I just can't get enough!
Easy, Wholesome Ingredients
All you need to make this easy gluten-free mixed berry smoothie is 7 simple wholesome ingredients:
- quinoa flour
- optional maple syrup
To make it vegan, simply swap kefir with almond milk, I often do it and is equally delightful.
Also, if you have troubles finding quinoa flour, substitute with puffed quinoa, almond or coconut flour.
The sweet & tart berry flavor is combined with a rich mix of banana and quinoa flour , and it's all liquefied with a splash of super healthy homemade kefir, to make a beautifully balanced nutritious breakfast you can sip on all morning long.
When I have a little more time, I like to first blend strawberries & raspberries together with a splash of water and set it aside, then blend blackberries & blueberries with banana & quinoa flour, and alternate the two colored smoothies in a tall glass.
It doesn't only look *super pretty*, but you are able to taste all the different berries at their berry best.
However, if you have a busy lifestyle, then you know having a proper pretty breakfast at the table is a luxury.
But that doesn't mean you shouldn't get all the nutrients you need to make the most of your day, actually the very opposite.
Perfect Breakfast For Busy Days
This nutrient-packed mixed berry smoothie is the perfect on-the-go breakfast for busy mornings.
All you have to do is throw all the ingredients in a powerful blender, and liquefy for about 30 seconds. Yes, I'm talking about a 30-second breakfast, how awesome is that?!
If you’re looking for a speedy nutritious breakfast, or a healthy treat to fuel you up in the afternoon, this mixed berry smoothie is sure to become a favourite.
Awesomely nutritious, and loaded with oh-so-good-for-you ingredients, it makes the perfect breakfast on the go!

Love making smoothies in my Vitamix. I've never had quinoa flour in a smoothie before, but I like the idea of it - I'm always trying to sneak some extra protein into my meals 🙂
I always have smoothie for breakfast too. I have mine with spinach,avocado,banana and just water. Have not tries quinoa flour and this smoothie got me curious, about it.

I love adding bananas to smoothies because they always provide such excellent creaminess to the drink. I've never heard of quinoa flour being used, but that sounds like an excellent way to get some extra protein in this!
