Summer is the perfect time to buy fresh berries (or pick them, if you have access to a farm!)  We would always find wild blackberries behind our house in Louisiana, so it’s definitely something I miss now that we’re in Texas.  (Or I need to find one of those farms!)

Luckily, our local farmer’s market sells fresh blackberries every year.  They are perfectly ripe, with just the right amount of sweetness – great for blackberry dumplings or blackberry smoothies!

With just a few ingredients, my children know they can have a blackberry smoothie whenever they ask for them.  It’s a great start to the day, a healthy snack or a nice dessert!

Blackberry Smoothie

Ingredients:

  • 2-3 cups of fresh blackberries (washed and dried)
  • 1 cup plain low-fat yogurt
  • 1 cup milk (adding more if the smoothie is too thick)
  • 2 tablespoons honey (optional)
  • 1 cup of ice

Add all ingredients to the blender, and blend until smooth.  This recipe makes 2-3 smoothies, depending on size.  

You can use raspberries in place of the blackberries, just adjust the honey as needed.
