Recipes for CLL Patients: Triple Berry Smoothie
Posted: Aug 15, 2023
Recipes for CLL Patients: Triple Berry Smoothie image

CLL patients, gain the health benefits of including antioxidant-rich foods in your day like wild blueberries, raspberries, and strawberries found in this smoothie recipe.

Foods high in antioxidants help decrease excess oxidative stress which can be the cause of your cancer-killing immune system cells being fatigued and not doing as good of a job as they should at killing cancer cells (see here for more about oxidative stress and immune system cells). 

Triple Berry Smoothie

Total time: 5 minutes 

Yield: 1 serving


  • 1/3 cup raspberries (frozen)
  • 1/3 cup wild blueberries (frozen) (next to regular blueberries in the frozen aisle, wild blueberries have 2x the amount of antioxidants than regular blueberries)
  • 2/3 cup strawberries (frozen)
  • 1/2 cup Greek yogurt
  • 1/2 cup ice
  • 2 teaspoons honey


  1. Place the yogurt, berries, honey, and ice into the blender 
  2. Blend for 2 minutes or until smooth and all the ice has broken up and thinned out

*You can add a little water or milk as needed to thin out the smoothie
