This blackberry smoothie is my third smoothie on the blog to kick off a month of healthy smoothies here at Veggie Staples. I’m hoping to get you guys 20 by the 31st! I recently headed over to BJ’s and picked up a huge box of blackberries that I’ve been munching on all week, so I knew I’d be throwing these into a smoothie recipe to share with you. This one is a fruity, delicious concoction. People underestimate blackberries, I think they get forgotten about because you see so many strawberry and blueberry recipes, but blackberries are one of my favorites. For instance, did you know they have the highest amount of antioxidants out of any berry? The high tannin content of blackberries also provides a number of benefits to reduce intestinal inflammation and tummy troubles, not to mention all that fiber!! What is your favorite berry?
- 1 cup blackberries (frozen or fresh)
- 1 cup greens (spinach, kale)
- 1 cup non dairy milk
- 1 cup water
- ice to taste
- Place all ingredients in a blender.
- Buzz on high speed until smooth
- Best if served immediately
