It’s been so hot the last few days, a smoothie sounded like the perfect thing to make! I like this recipe because it not only has blackberries in it, but also a peach—yum! Blackberries and peaches are such great summer fruits, so why not use them together in a smoothie? If you don’t have blackberries, you can use blueberries or raspberries. Use your berries frozen—it makes the smoothie thicker, not to mention really cool and refreshing!
BLACKBERRY PEACH SMOOTHIE by NancyC
Makes 16 ounces (enough for 2 small smoothies or 1 large smoothie)
1 cup frozen blackberries (or substitute blueberries or raspberries)
1 peach, sliced, with pit removed (you can peel the peach if you want—if it’s organic, I leave the skin on—or you can use canned peaches)
1 cup vanilla Greek yogurt
1/2 Tablespoon flaxseed or wheat germ
2 to 3 ice cubes
1/2 Tablespoon honey
Add all ingredients to your blender and blend until smooth and creamy.
