My kids have all been eagerly anticipating the arrival of blackberry season. Really, they have been waiting months and months! We all love blackberry crisp, blackberry pie, blackberry jam, quadruple berry shortcake, blackberry waffles or pancakes, and eating just plain old blackberries. I couldn’t wait to try fresh blackberries in a smoothie since we use the frozen the rest of the year.
- 1 cup blackberries
- 1.5 cups coconut milk
- 2 bananas
- 1/2-1 cup ice
- 1 T chia seeds, optional
- Blend all ingredients until smooth.
- Serve immediately.
The Verdict: As long as you have a high powered blender like a Vitamix or are committed to straining your smoothie, this is a great smoothie! When we had a regular blender, I just added 5-10 blackberries so we wouldn’t need to strain the smoothies because it was so laborious. Love this smoothie with the high powered blender!
