Super Raw Brain Juice

‘Super Nuclear Brainstorm Booster’ – packed with insanely delicious raw ingredients ! The blueberry has also been referred to as the ‘brain berry’ (great for the memory), the many health benefits of extra virgin coconut oil are legendary (again including memory), and flaxseed is known to reduce the risk of heart disease, cancer, stroke and diabetes (and once again memory – as healthy blood vessels aid optimal brain function).  Then chia seeds are full of beneficial brain nutrients! They include healthy omega-3 ALA used by your brain to make DHA fatty acids (a necessity for good brain function). Chia seeds are also a complete protein full of the nine essential amino acids needed to keep your mood stable and your brain working at its best. They are full of antioxidants, which help fight free radicals and save your brain from all the damage free radicals can cause.  Lastly, chia seeds release glucose slowly, which helps it get to your brain to be used as energy. So, a glass of this essential juice in the morning, and there’s no excuse if you lose your mobile or your keys . . .  serve with a handful of walnuts, and you’ve got yourself the ultimate brain juice !

Makes 2 glasses


¾ cup frozen blueberries

1 Tbsp extra virgin coconut oil (set) – (I suggest this brand in the US or Biona in the UK)

2 tsp ground flaxseed (these links are for great organic flaxseed – UK, or US)

1 tsp chia seeds

¾ frozen banana

4 or 5 ice cubes

1 tsp stevia or coconut sugar, or other vegan sweetener of your choice

(stevia can be found here in UK or US, and coconut sugar here in UK or US)

1½ glasses cold water


Spin the above in your high speed blender (my Vitamix is perfect for this), serve and Enjoy !

  1. sounds like something i need ,if it works …i want to try it.

  2. I think we all need this Iva. One drink alone won’t change the brain, but taking it over a period of a few weeks it may help since the ingredients are wonderful and good for the brain, it’s a great combo in a glass. I feel better for it, and I have had it for the 3rd time running. 🙂

  3. This recipe looks amazing! Will be making this tomorrow morning! Thank you, you are amazing!

  4. Thanks there Faith, do pop back and let me know what you think as and when. Best wishes your way in the meantime. 🙂

  5. Just made this. Really enjoyed it. I normally put almond milk in my smoothies so this tasted a bit watery but nonetheless it was very refreshing! I even cut the water down to one glass vs 1.5 glasses of water.

  6. Glad you enjoyed it Glenda and hope you enjoy the wonderful health benefits too. It’s more of a sorbet type of smoothie than a ‘milky’ one, but it’s still rich and packed with flavour. 🙂

  7. Can’t wait to try it! Any reason for freezing the banana first? I always have fresh on hand.

  8. Hi Chris. I freeze them because no.1 they freeze very well 2. they keep their flavour and ice up any smoothie without the need to add too much extra ice and 3 because it’s very convenient. 🙂

  9. Cora Evangeline

    Always on the lookout for new juices, this one looks delicious and healthy! which is always a winning combination. 🙂 Thank-you for this recipe.

  10. Made this drink this morning. Used flaxseed oil as I didn’t have any flaxseeds. Tasted great.

  11. Juanita, so glad to hear this, flaxseed oil would have worked very well. Cheers !

  12. You are most welcome Cora, and hope you enjoy it ! 🙂

  13. I made this without the flaxseed and added almond milk. Very refreshing, and gives you a boost after a long day of fasting!

  14. Sadly our local big supermarket doesn’t do flaxseed or flaxseed oil – only the health food shops do.

  15. May be you can order them online Tehmina. They will last a while too if so !

  16. Thanks for letting me know Tehmina and so glad you enjoyed it all the same with the almond milk ! 🙂

  17. I’ve just discovered your blog. The recipes look absolutely amazing!

    I make something similar to this – I add 1 tbs raw tahini. It tastes really good (I don’t put coconut oil/cream though, don’t like the taste so much in shakes) 🙂

  18. Thanks there Merav ! 🙂
