Its Blackberry Time – Smoothie Recipe

Posted on September 5th, 2018


Has anyone noticed how many blackberries there are this year?  In these times of climate change it seems that the plants have nevertheless been doing well….. We heard from our local tree ‘whisperer’, the incredible Gordon Field at a recent Cygnus Café meeting, that there are extraordinary energies coming through the trees from somewhere beyond our immediate sun which are supporting the earth and the plants…  Certainly seems to be true of the blackberries!

So the plan for this weekend is to go out picking….. and last weekend I just got a few that I could use to make some lovely smoothies.  So here is my Smoothie of the Month:


Hemp milk (use either shelled hemp seeds and filtered water*, or a good bought hemp milk if you are in a hurry)

  • Blackberries – a good cupful
  • Greens powder – I use Greens and Probiotics by Hardy Nutritional
  • Cacao powder – a tablespoon (leave out if you don’t want the stimulation, add in for extra feelgood)
  • Ashwagandha – half a teaspoon
  • Baobab powder (optional but lovely)
  • Sprinkle of cinnamon (use cinnamon veru or ceylonicum – it still has its potency)
  • A banana to sweeten and thicken – or use lecithin and a natural sweetener like coconut nectar if you need it

Blend your shelled hempseeds if you are using these – definitely the best option as less processed than bought hemp milk.  Use water from an *alkalinity filter jug for purity and to balance pH.    We sell this on the website, along with all the products listed above apart from the fresh fruit.  Then add fruit and powders.  Adjust taste as you prefer, and serve with a few blackberries, a sprinkling of cacao nibs or a sprig of fresh mint.  Divine indeed!
