Black & Blue

Not too long ago I tried my first smoothie that I actually enjoyed at Tropical Smoothie.  Since then I’ve been itching to try one of my own.  Yesterday morning I made a smoothie that I’ve entitled the “Black & Blue.”  I really enjoyed this smoothie, but the banana was kind of a drawback for me.  I don’t really enjoy bananas, and the smoothie I had at Tropical Smoothie didn’t taste like a banana.  Next time, I’m just going to put less banana in it.

I’m not much for fruits but I know they hold key nutrients that your body needs.  Smoothies are a great way to get those key nutrients faster and it tastes better.

Frozen fruit is a great way to make smoothies.  I happen to have some fresh banana and blackberries, but I used frozen blueberries.  Frozen fruit is actually better to use in smoothies because it makes it creamier.


1 whole banana
1/2 cup blackberries
1/2 cup blueberries
1/2 cup of milk

Blend it all up and you get a Black & Blue smoothies.  Smoothies are all about your own taste, so if you don’t like the way it tastes, add some more of each ingredient until you get the right taste!
