Red Cabbage & Raspberry Smoothie

Best way to get your fruits and veggies in without a doubt is the humble smoothie. Not only is it a great way to get your 5 a day but also its QUICK so the perfect Busy Girl breakfast/lunch.

Anyway, I’ve been on a bit of a smoothie cleanse since the 2016 so I’ve been experimenting with a few different varieties and I’ve found a great combo – red cabbage and raspberry.

Seriously. It looks as amazing as it tastes.


Why Is Red Cabbage So Good?

Red cabbage is an amazing source of vitamin C and just 1 cup has 56% of the recommended daily intake. It also has vitamin A and K. It’s also a great source of L-glutamine which promotes digestive and brain health, muscle growth, athletic performance as well as helping to fight cancer and reducing high blood pressure.

Red Cabbage and Raspberry Smoothie – The Recipe – Makes One


1/2 cup of shredded red cabbage

1/2 a banana (frozen is best)

1/4 cup of raspberries

1/2 cup almond milk

1/2 cup water

Ginger* (to taste)

1 scoop of vanilla protein powder (optional)

Just bung it in your blender and blitz. If it’s too thick for you, add more liquid.

  1. That’s an interesting combo….would never have ever thought to combine them. I might have to give it a go.

  2. I’m loving the sound of this! I am struggling to meet my protein needs at the moment with my intensive exercise – I ought to invest in protein powder…
