A Berry Sweet Green Smoothie

I’m all about berries during the summer. Blueberries, blackberries, strawberries, raspberries; you name it I will gladly eat it.

So in the spirit of fresh berries I wanted to make a summery smoothie with one of my all time favorites, blackberries. Below is my recipe for a deliciously sweet and healthy blackberry-induced smoothie.

What You Need:

  • About 15 blackberries
  • 1 whole orange
  • 1/2 cup frozen mango
  • 1/2 cup spinach (I used spinach and arugula when the pic was taken–stick to just spinach)
  • 1/2 cup almond milk

First mix the berries, orange and almond milk. Then once that’s been liquified add in the mango and spinach. If you want the smoothie thicker add a couple of ice cubes to the mix. If you prefer a thinner drink, add a little more almond milk!

Watermelon Green Smoothie…YES!

If  you haven’t been able to tell from my recent posts, I am EXTREMELY excited that summer is just around the corner. Not only is summer the best because it hosts my birthday but some of my favorite food is in season, and with summer comes the beach! woo!

In honor of all things summer I have been eating watermelon and so naturally I decided to make a watermelon #greensmoothie. Here’s my first watermelon green smoothie recipe:

  • 1 cup of  diced watermelon
  • 1/2 of a pear
  • 1/2 cup of spinach
  • 1/4 cup of almond milk

*Note: I froze this smoothie over night before drinking to make it thicker, if you want a thicker consistency and are planning on drinking it immediately add ice cubes when blending
