Blackberry and Blueberry Super Smoothie

I can’t even begin to tell you how excited I am to be posting about smoothies again, thanks to this blackberry and blueberry super smoothie.

I love smoothies. I could survive on them in the summer time. Now that the weather has finally started to turn warm, and more fruit is cropping up at the store, it’s been perfect smoothie time.

My new favorite is going to surprise you. Not because it’s chock-full of yummy fruits like blackberries and blueberries (because it is). Or because I didn’t use a banana as the base (because I didn’t!). But because I’ve discovered some new favorite ingredients, like avocados and chia seeds.

Yeah. I know. I’m a little late to the party…

Some reasons to include these superstars into your diet:

Avocados are great for lowering cholesterol, preventing heart disease, reducing your risk for certain cancers, keeping those eyes healthy, and even helping you absorb the nutrients in other foods better. They are also great foods for women to eat, as they contain a high amount of folate.

Chia seeds ā€” made famous by the Chia Pet craze ā€” are actually an amazing source of nutrition. They are stuffed to the gills with protein, fiber, iron, calcium, and omega-3’s. And also help to slow down digestion, keeping blood sugar nice and stable.

Regardless of how good it is for you, this smoothie tastes amazing. Seriously. I think it’s my favorite smoothie to-date. And that’s saying a lot.

What do you think? What’s been your favorite smoothie?

  1. Looks really tasty. My only question is the green grapes. How big are they as there is no way I would fit 30green grapes in a 1/2 cup.

  2. Although I thought the avocado would be an odd ingredient, I tried this and it is DELICIOUS! Thank you!
