Daniel Fast Smoothie

berry blast smoothie

Berry Blast Smoothie

1 cup water or any unsweetened non-dairy milk (such as almond, coconut, rice or soy)
1 cup frozen blackberries, blueberries, and raspberries
1 banana, peeled

Yield: 2 servings (serving size: about 8 ounces or 1 cup)

Recipe Notes

  • Your smoothie will taste best if either the berries or the banana is frozen. To freeze bananas, remove peels before placing in freezer. Put in a plastic zip-top bag until completely frozen.
  • To make this a “green” smoothie, add 1 cup of fresh spinach or kale leaves (stems removed from the kale).
  • Add 1 tablespoon flaxseed meal for a fiber boost.

    We start our Daniels Fast on the 8th and I am definately using your website and recipes. Thank you for the time you took to put into this. I appreciate you

    • I’m glad to hear you’ll be seeking the Lord through prayer and fasting! I pray the recipes and devotions are a huge blessing to you. Thank you for your encouragement and comments.

    Your website is so helpful. I thank you for taking your time to help newbies like myself through the fast. I would have not been able to do it if God had not put this in your spirit. Day 2! Woo hoo! Thanks a million!

  4. I tried the smoothie this morning with strawberries, bananas and raspberries. I always make my smoothies this way but I use sweetened almond milk. Today I used water instead and I must have done something wrong because it was not delicious! I did use your exact fruits because I did not have blackberries and I do not enjoy blueberries. I guess I will have to try a different smoothie.

    • You could certainly use unsweetened almond milk for this recipe (or any other non-dairy milk). In fact, I should have added that to the ingredients list (which I just did). That recipe was written a long time ago before I discovered almond milk. I didn’t realize I hadn’t updated it! Sorry about that! One reason the smoothie seemed so bland is because you’re used to the sweetened almond milk. So, you might want to give it another try. I’ve been using unsweetened coconut milk in my smoothies lately and really like it.

  5. Is it okay to make the smoothie with almond milk or coconut milk? I do not like the smoothie with water.

  6. Hi im new to this Daniel Fast and I find recipes that haven’t been to he greatest so I really want to do it it’s just hard and I don’t want to give up. So I’m looking into your recipes and hope they do a lot better

  7. My family members and I began the fast on 1:6 and this website has been amazing for us!!! Thank you!

  8. What about Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk and egg substitutes ?

  9. Hi Kristen! I am on day 2 of the fast, sorry I started so late, but I was just wondering will my body go into starvation mode because I really don’t want to gain weight, and I don’t want to really lose that much either, but I am doing this for The Lord. Can you give me some advice please

    • Hi, Sidney! Your body won’t go into starvation mode! The Daniel Fast is a partial fast, which means you can eat some food. Most of the time, I don’t lose or gain. I usually stay about the same. Some people, though, lose several pounds. It all depends what your eating habits were BEFORE the fast and then how much you eat while on the fast. I would suggest getting a copy of my book to help you. I provide devotions, 100+ recipes, and three weeks of meal plans. Plus, there is a section that explains the fast and how to create your own fasting plan. Adding some structure might take the fear out of it for you.

  10. Kristen, I plan on starting the Daniel Fast very soon and I am very excited. I usually start off my day with a sugar free protein powder and almond milk or coconut milk. Will i still be able to have it on Daniel Fast?

    • You’ll have to check the ingredients in the protein powder. Most “powders” contain ingredients that aren’t allowed on the fast (chemicals, dairy products, sugar, etc.). Yes, you can have unsweetened almond or coconut milk.

  11. Is there any way to make a smoothie that does NOT have a banana. I would like to try one, but I am allergic to bananas and yogurt. Yikes! Any help? Thank you.

    Hello,

    We are getting ready to start our Daniel fast and I wanted to know can I use honey or agave syrup for a sweetener?

  13. I made this after dinner for dessert, very good, kids loved it. Thanks!

  14. My husband and I are staring the fast Sunday with our church. Do you have any tips for us because we are trying to do the fast but we’re limited income wise to buy all the meals and things for recipes. Any helpful tips would be awesome.

  15. Japonica Lewis says:

    I made this smoothie and it is great. I followed exactly what you have in the receipt. Only one thing I had sweet almond milk. I didn’t know they had an unsweetened one. Next time I will try it. Thanks again. God bless you!!

  16. Loving these recipes while on the fast. Thank you ;)

  17. I am a bit confused. The Daniel fast says you are only allowed to drink water, so how can one drink a smoothie and still be considered as partaking in the fast? The recipes sound wonderful, but I’m confused as to how they are accurate. Wonderful site though! Thanks for all the recipes!!! God Bless!!!
