Quinoa Banana Berry Smoothie

Quinoa Banana Berry Smoothie

Quinoa is an ancient grain grown in the Andes mountains, and dates back to 3,000 B.C.E. This protein-rich whole grain contains all of the essential amino acids necessary for muscle and tissue repair, and is gluten-free and full of fiber. Quinoa is often used in place of rice and is versatile enough to be the headliner in this ultra yummy and nutritious smoothie.

  • 1/2 cup cooked Quinoa (cook according to package and chill)
  • 1 frozen banana (pre-sliced)
  • 1 cup frozen raspberries
  • 1-1/2 cups green tea (home brewed without added sweeteners is best), add more or less depending on consistency preferred.
  • 6 ice cubes


Place all ingredients in the blender and blend until smooth.

Tip: Quinoa can be purchased in the organic or health food section of most supermarkets. We recommend Inca Red, pre washed. Also, red Quinoa is slightly sweeter than white or black, which is perfect for this recipe.

Vitamix blenders are the perfect complement to our clean, lean approach to eating.  Vitamix blenders puree a variety of whole foods into a completely smooth consistency, without losing any of the fiber or nutrients. Prepare everything from smoothies, ice creams, frozen drinks, and full-fiber juices to nut butters, creamy dips, salad dressings, and sauces. With the Vitamix 7-year warranty, self-cleaning mode, and excellent customer service, you have a tool that will make your days easier, healthier, and will last a lifetime!
