Smoothie Recipes from Dr. Neal Barnard

Dr. Neal Barnard had a few great recipes to show Ellen. Try them for yourself right here!

Breakfast Smoothie
Serves 2 (Makes about 3 cups)


  • 1 very ripe banana (with plenty of brown speckles)
  • 2 cups frozen fruit (such as berries, mangoes, strawberries, orange, and pineapple)
  • 1 cup non-dairy milk

Combine all ingredients in a blender. Start your blender on the lowest setting and slowly increase speed until mix turns in to a puree. Blueberries and grapes are shown to boost learning and recall. Power up your brain with a delicious blueberry smoothie!

Smoothie Parfait
Serves 1


  • 3/4 cup Breakfast Smoothie
  • 1/4 cup toasted dried oats or granola
  • Fresh berries or a sprig of mint, for topping

Layer 1/4 cup of the smoothie in the bottom of a glass. Add a 2-tablespoon layer of oats next, followed by another 1/4 cup of smoothie. Repeat layers and finish with fresh berries and mint.

Love your show, and you. Breath of fresh air. Looking forward to the fabulous Wanda Sikes. We older women, not you, have to stick together. I'm older than both of you, but life was never any grander. One must never give up on their dreams. After 100 rejections by agents I have two books on Amazon and more to come. Not getting rich but you never know.
