Berry Blast Smoothie (raw vegan)

This delicious mixture of fruit and protein will keep you going all morning!

It’s also a great way to use frozen fruit or overripe fresh fruit.

The superfoods are all optional, but I include them here if you want to give one or two of them a go. Your smoothie will be just as delicious without them, so don’t worry if you don’t have any to hand!

Serves 4 as an accompanying drink to raw granola or fresh fruit, or serves 2 as a breakfast on its own.

You will need

A good blender or hand blender


3 cups/520ml nut milk (make your own, or use store-bought almond or hemp milk)

½ cup/60g blueberries, raspberries, or other berries

2 ripe bananas (the browner, the sweeter!)

1 teaspoon vanilla extract or ½ teaspoon vanilla powder

2 teaspoons maca (optional superfood)

2 teaspoons mesquite (optional superfood)

2 teaspoons barley grass powder (optional superfood)

How you do it

Blend and enjoy!

About The Author

Barbara Fernandez, the Rocking Raw Chef, is a raw food expert who has been helping people learn to make delicious raw food that’s quick, easy and family-friendly for over ten years.

Director and creator of RawFiesta Ltd, Barbara worked – although she would say slaved – in restaurants for many years before coming across raw food and discovering that she could ‘have her deliciously healthy cake and eat it too’ while having a great time and living with the boundless energy that she is famous for (she is 50 in the picture above).

Also a professional rock singer and teacher, Barbara has over 30 years’ experience training and entertaining audiences in Europe and in the US, as well as most recently in Latin America. Fluent in both French and Spanish.

Barbara adores languages and is passionate about using her linguistic abilities to spread the ‘raw food word’ to as many people as possible.

Barbara’s passion is teaching others how to make healthy food for themselves that is family-friendly, made with simple equipment and ingredients, ready in 5 minutes and above all, super delicious. “I’m a total foodie,” Barbara says. “I’d rather rock out than spend hours in the kitchen, and I’d definitely rather eat curry than chew on a carrot stick!”

Barbara’s audience particularly loves her down-to-earth, inclusive approach that enables everyone to enjoy raw food dishes together, regardless of what they normally eat. Barbara feels very strongly that people should be allowed to start where they’re at, rather than be forced to adopt a 100% raw lifestyle.

To this end, she specializes in what she calls ‘ONE meal for everyone’, enabling busy people to make raw food dishes quickly that can easily be combined with other foods so that parents and children, friends and lovers can all eat a single meal together, no matter where they may be on their own personal ‘food journey’.

Barbara holds David Wolfe’s Ultimate Raw Nutrition certification, is a graduate of Anthony Robbins’ Leadership Academy, is trained in Voice Movement Therapy and in addition to singing, performing, giving interviews and teaching, she has written 7 ebooks on raw food, which are currently being published in both English and Spanish.

In addition to holding workshops, giving talks as well as singing her ‘rock it raw’ spoof songs, Barbara also holds 7-Day Raw Food Immersion retreats in the beautiful Cotswolds.

A free starter program as well as recipes, articles and tips are available at her website
