Berry Glad You Can’t Taste The Cabbage Smoothie

I call this one Berry Glad You Can’t Taste The Cabbage. Ha. I swear, you can’t!

Why cabbage? Cabbage and other cruciferous vegetables are good sources of glucosinolates that hydrolyze to indole-3-carbinol and isothiocyanate. Both are researched in cancer prevention, especially hormone-sensitive cancers. They’re also great for metabolic detoxification and liver support.

Hemp seeds contain 10 g of plant-based protein and 10 g of a omegas per 3 Tb serving. If you don’t have them on hand, you can substitute ground flaxseed or Chia seeds.


  • 1/2 c frozen organic blueberries*
  • 1/2 c frozen organic strawberries*
  • 1/2 c Napa or Savoy cabbage, chopped
  • 1/4 c raw unsalted cashews
  • 2 Tb hemp hearts aka raw shelled hemp seeds
  • 2 pitted dates
  • 1 c water
  • 1 c ice

*costco sells frozen organic bags, or you can substitute any fresh or frozen mixed berries.


Combine all ingredients and blend well in a Vitamix or similar. Enjoy cold.
