Berry Bliss Smoothie


Posted on   Category: Drinks & Shakes

Berries rock my world. They’re mother natures’ own sweets…juicy, tart, and perfectly bite-sized. Bonus: they’re packed with vitamins that your body will love. Blackberries are among the top ranked antioxidant-rich fruits and contain high levels of fiber, manganese, copper and vitamin C. Urggghh….too much science?! Translation: they’re great for weight control, clear skin and energy. With just 61 calories a cup, blackberries make a great snack or addition to your morning smoothie, just like this one.
