Blackberry, banana and mint smoothie


Here it is, another amazing smoothie. This one is blueberries and banana pretty much with a little hint of mint coming from fresh mint leaves. A very refreshing smoothie indeed!!

One important note I want to add is that blackberries are important to get organic. If you go to my health and nutrition link I mention that certain foods are more important than others to get organic. Berries are one of them. If you are on a budget try to save some for organic berries, it does make a lot of difference, and I am not talking just about the taste.

As the weather is getting better I am finding myself making more smoothies.
Not long ago I mentioned a pumpkin spice smoothie, well, that one is also coming soon, I haven’t forgotten, so stay tuned.

Enjoy!!


I first blend the mint with a little bit of the soy milk before adding the rest of the ingredients but you can just blend them all at once if you prefer.

Believe it or not but the mint gives the smoothie a really refreshing subtle flavor. You can omit it if you wish but I strongly recommend you use it.
