A great way to get going in the morning is to make a smoothie or shake for a drinkable breakfast. Shakes are one of the quickest and easiest meal options out there. This antioxidant shake is packed with healthy ingredients to give your body the right boost it needs after waking up from its 6-10 hour fast. Getting the right type of energy into your body starting first thing in the morning can help regulate your metabolism and energy levels throughout the entire day.

Antioxidant Berry Shake- super healthy & full of vitamins. You need to try this!


I love adding berries to shakes that I make because they do so much for your body. Both raspberries and blueberries contain Vitamin C and antioxidants that boost your immune system. Banana is also a popular smoothie add-in because it’s healthy and the flavor works well with a lot of other ingredients. Bananas add a little extra potassium and fiber to your day. Instead of throwing some ice cubes in the smoothie, using frozen fruit keeps the drink cold and provides more nutrients. You can also find all of these in bulk in the frozen section of the grocery store, making them easy to store and pop into a blender when you are making the shake.

Chia seeds are an optional add in, but I highly recommended them. They have a neutral flavor and just a tablespoon of these will provide you with Omega-3s, fiber, and protein.

Instead of skipping breakfast, the most important meal of the day, the next time you are in a rush, whip up a quick shake to get off to a good start. There is little effort required, and the shake can even be transferred to a cup to take on the go. Your body and your taste buds will thank you.

  1. One issue with this breakfast recipe is that it provides little protein and, which is one of the mainstay of the paleo diet. I personally use pure whey powder and sometimes a raw egg or two instead, plus a tsp or two of almond butter. That way, I can last for hours. And delicicous, yes.

    • I am all smiles seeing someone else point out the lack of protein/fat….. I slowly worked up to having a 5-6 egg berry/green smoothie!

      5-6 local fresh pasture raised eggs (still healing my small intestine so i can’t handle whey)
      4 tbsp coconut oil
      1 avocado
      1 cup frozen blueberries
      1/2 cup frozen spinach
      some Maca root powder
      and if im feeling spunky……I’ll add some cacao nibs (and maybe a tsp of honey – SHHH dont tell on me….at least its raw local honey)

      (this is one very tasty, simple, on the go, nutritious, paleo friendly shake)

  2. I used flax seeds instead of chia seeds because I didn’t have any chia seeds on hand. Tastes great! Almost like the berry banana burst smoothie from Nektar!

  3. I agree- needs protein. I use a organic sprouted brown rice protein powder (Raw for Life I think) and use goat yogurt for pro-biotics
    I still think that whey is a bi-product from the dairy industry that is being pushed to dispose of what used to be a giant waste-product that they had to pay to get rid of. Just MHO 🙂
