Day 6: Blackberry Blend

Day 6 - Blackberry BlendIt’s finally FRIDAY! Yessss… I made it an entire work week enjoying my green smoothies. What I especially loved is the looks on the faces of my coworkers “what is that?!”

Today I wanted to use up the rest of the blackberries in our freezer. The mistake I made is that the blackberries didn’t have much taste to begin with, but I didn’t want to waste them. Make sure the blackberries you use are ripe and taste good whether they’re bought fresh or you bought them previously frozen.

I also used my Simply Stevia packets to help sweeten it and get rid of the bitterness. You can buy a box of mixed flavors to include the mixed berry flavor I used. They come in little packets which are nice to take on the go and sweeten beverages if you go out to eat. Maybe one day restaurants will switch out the splenda and other bad sugars with these packets!

Here is the recipe from Day 6!

Blackberry Blend

  • Kale
  • 1 1/4 c. Blackberries
  • Spoonful Whole Yogurt
  • 1/4 c. Goji Berries
  • 1/4 c. Sunflower Seeds
  • Sprinkle of Chia Seeds
  • Almond Milk
  • 2 packets of the mixed berry Simply Stevia

I added in more of the stevia then you may need to use since it was bitter tasting. At first it tasted great but faded once I got to work. So definitely make sure you use good blackberries. If that doesn’t help, feel free to throw in some other berries.
