Brain Boosting Smoothie Recipe

Brain health you can blend

You can do crosswords and Sudoku puzzles until your hand hurts, but all that brain-busting work will go to waste if you don’t fuel your thinker with the right nutrients. When you eat for your brain, you will think more clearly and efficiently, says Daniel Amen, MD, author of Unleash The Power Of The Female Brain.

The following smoothie is packed with foods that help boost blood flow, stabilize blood sugar, and neutralize free-radical damage—all important for optimal brain health.

Makes 1 serving = 2 cups

Berries get their deep hue from anthocyanins, potent antioxidants that protect your brain cells from aging processes. The flaxseed delivers a healthy dose of omega-3 fats, which help promote good blood flow to your brain.


3/4 cup skim milk (may substitute soy, almond, or rice milk)

1/2 banana

1 1/2 cups frozen mixed berries (blueberries, raspberries, blackberries and/or strawberries)

1 tablespoon ground flaxseed


Combine all ingredients in a blender, and blend until smooth and frothy. If you prefer a thinner smoothie or the blender is having a difficult time processing the ingredients, add an extra splash of milk.
