Blackberry Green Smoothie

Sweet from plump blackberries, a whole banana, and frozen pineapple, this smoothie is my go-to after a hard work out. It’s the perfect drink to help rehydrate and renourish. And it bridges that gap between meals.

When it comes to food blog trends, I like to think I do my best to avoid them. Most of the time, I try to do my own thing, whether it is photographing or eating it. I tend to welcome new foods as much as I embrace the classics, but I’m not necessarily out there searching them out. I guess what I’m trying to say is that I would like to think the way I share food here happens fairly organically.

Then I read this. And I had a really good laugh. “Food bondage,” as Sean calls it, made me snort. I may or may not have participated in this. Once.

I’m definitely guilty of a little mason jar abuse here and there.

But the green smoothie, oh, yes, I fell in, hook line and sinker. You know by now I’m a late adopter, but the truth is I make a green smoothie nearly every day! And here’s a Blackberry Green Smoothie that I know you’ll love just as much!

The really funny thing though, is my daughter chimed in when I was photographing this one. She saw my blue stripey straws and gushed, “Ooh, use those mommy!” I was dubious. And I agreed to take a few shots, just for her.

So when I saw stripey straws listed as the first food blog trend that should stop, I cringed. I guess I’m guilty of more food blog trends after all!

Well, the damage has been done. But the good news is this: this Blackberry Green Smoothie is healthy and delicious, stripey straw or not.

    I went to Wayfair, but did not see any reference to green smoothie. Not a fan of irrelevant lists.

      Hi, Jill. When I originally shared this recipe, I had created it for the Wayfair website, however, I am not in control of when they move or remove content. Thanks for making me aware that the recipe is no longer available there. I have added the recipe to this post for your convenience.

    I try to avoid food trends, too, but sometimes they have their place in life. For instance, detoxing after holiday debauchery calls for nutrient-rich green smoothies that are also delicious. LOVE this smoothie! It’s so packed with flavor and health benefits – I could drink this every day! Have a great weekend, lady!

    Stripey straw for the win. :) everyone has their opinion on what should be written or photographed. I say stick to your own beat and don’t worry about what others think you should stop doing. I for one, love the stripey straws. The end.

    Liren, i had to laugh as I read your post. I too had read the post on the 10 Food Trends that need to stop. And yes, I must admit I’m am guilty of two or three. I remember thinking to myself, ‘oh darn, what am I going to do with all those cute straws I bought’. Apparently, a trend came and went before I even had the opportunity to abuse it. Anyway, Like you, I try hard to preserve my individuality on my blog, but I say, if it feels right, then it must be right. Your smoothie sounds like the perfect way to begin the day. One thing I know for sure, it is bound to taste better when sipped through a stripe-y straw.

    We are so much on the same page today. Just last night I thought I need to do a berry green smoothie. The green smoothie is my third most popular post (who knew and yes it’s trendy) and red beet smoothie my second most popular and I’m clearly not a health blog. The green smoothie is requested in my house almost every day, only second to something with berries. This settles it. I need to get out the Vitamix.

    Liren I love the flavors in this smoothie. I’m running into more and more people who have a mental block to the ‘green’ in green smoothies; this is the perfect solution!
