A deep purple smoothie with antioxidant-rich blueberries and blackberries. Bananas give it extra sweetness as well as a healthy dose of potassium. This is a great healthy smoothie that’s also lower in calories.
We’ve been making more and more smoothies lately as the weather warms up. Everyone enjoys the fact that smoothies are quick & easy to make as they are to drink – and so nutritious, too.
This blueberry smoothie has blackberries in it, which give it a deeper purple color and more sweetness. I use frozen bananas instead of fresh ones when I make this, because the cold bananas will keep the smoothie from warming up as it blends.
I hope you get a chance to try this smoothie out during the summer. Be on the lookout for the prices of blueberries to go down around June. If you have access to wild blueberries or blackberries, pick a lot and freeze them so you can enjoy this tasty purple blueberry smoothie all year long!
