For this smoothie recipe, bananas are chosen for their ability to give the smoothie a creamy consistency. Additionally, bananas are rich in essential nutrients that can benefit heart health and mood, among other benefits.

Blackberries are the star ingredient in this recipe. Besides being low in calories, carbs, and fat, they are packed with beneficial vitamins, minerals, fiber, and antioxidants.

Spinach, known for its mild flavor and soft texture, seamlessly blends into this fruity smoothie. It provides iron, supports healthy blood, and promotes eye health.

The choice of liquid is up to personal preference, but adding some type of milk helps enhance the smoothie’s protein content and creamy texture. Unsweetened almond milk or grass-fed milk are recommended, but any nut milk will work.

For sweetness, a touch of maple syrup is added. It not only adds natural sweetness but also provides nutrients like zinc, magnesium, calcium, and potassium.

As an optional ingredient, chia seeds can be added for additional fiber, protein, and healthy fats. Alternatively, collagen protein powder can be used as a meal replacement.

How To Make A Blackberry Smoothie

Simply add all of the ingredients into a high-powered blender. For easier blending, it’s recommended to chop the spinach leaves before adding them to the blender. Blend on high speed until smooth. Serve in fancy glasses to make it feel like a special treat. Adding a decorative Aardvark paper straw can also be a fun and eco-friendly touch.
