Millet, Banana and Raspberry Smoothie

Makes 2 servings

Supercharged with antioxidants and available year round, frozen berries are the perfect base for nutritious smoothies. Here, we pair frozen raspberries with a sweet banana and nutrient-packed millet to create a healthy frosty concoction that's sure to please your taste buds. Antioxidant-rich acai berry powder is added to this gluten-free, dairy-free smoothie to give it an extra health kick.

Cook's note: Acai powder and other products made from this South American "superfood" are available at many health food stores, but you can also buy them online. The online retailer Amazon, for example, sells everything from freeze-dried, organic acai berry powder to acai berry juice, puree and capsules here ( for US customers) and here ( for UK customers).

Ginger Spinach Smoothie


  • 1 ripe banana
  • 1 ½ cups frozen raspberries
  • ¼ cup cooked, cooled millet
  • 1 Tbsp acai powder (buy it here)
  • About 1 ⅔ cups water


  • Peel the banana and rinse the raspberries. Put the banana and raspberries in a high-powered blender along with the remaining ingredients.
  • Process until smooth and creamy, turning off the blender and pushing down on the ingredients with a spatula as needed to help the blending process.
  • Check the consistency. If the smoothie seems too thick, add more water and blend for a few more seconds.
  • Pour into glasses and serve right away.
