  • 1 cup mixed berries (frozen or fresh)
  • 1 - 2 cups liquid (see notes)
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1/4 teaspoon pink Himalayan salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground turmeric
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons chia seeds
  • 1 tablespoon MCT oil (see notes)


  • Place all of the ingredients in a blender and process until totally smooth.

Any preferred milk (dairy or non-dairy), unsweetened tea (like green or hibiscus) or plain filtered water will work for the liquid.
MCT oil is a wonderful healthy fat to incorporate into your diet. If you are new to MCT oil, start out small (1 teaspoon) and gradually increase (to 1 tablespoon) to avoid digestive pain. Alternatively, you can substitute coconut oil for MCT oil.
These are my favorite stainless steel straws.
