Blackberry Banana Chia Smoothie

Juicy, sweet, succulent, antioxidant rich…blackberries! So bright and beautiful.

I can not get enough of fresh berries in the warmer months. Cherries, strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, blackberries…

Oh, and smoothies – can’t get enough of those either! Breakfast made easy. Or have one as a mid-day snack…or post workout replenisher…or dessert! They’re so very versatile. I make so many of them in the spring and summer months.

This one is a meal too, packing nearly 20 grams of protein with the 1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt and chia seeds. A {naturally} sweet, creamy, and fulfilling drink!

Mmmmm, enjoy!

And now I must clip coupons, grocery shop, fold laundry, and go for a run…because that’s what Sunday’s at my home look like.

Enjoy yours!

    Hi Laurenda,

    This smoothie looks absolutely delicious and I can’t wait to give it a try. I just wanted to let you know that every recipe that you post is amazing and I thank you for introducing me to new super foods every day.
    I have an off topic question but which skincare products do you use (cleansers, face masks etc.) as I have incredibly sensitive skin and find it hard to find products on the market that don’t cause irritation.

      Hi Scarlett! Thank you for frequenting my site and the kind comments. That makes me so happy. :) I really hope you enjoy the recipes you try! Regarding skincare, I do not use any commercial store bought products. I have recently swapped out facial cleaners for some more natural products. I like to cleanse my face first with warm water, then use a little apple cider vinegar or witch hazel on a cotton ball and rub that over my face. It helps to cleanse, tone, and purify. To moisturize, I actually use natural OIL! Coconut and avocado oils are my favorite. This is the exact avocado oil I buy, if you were interested. I’ve noticed these products have helped my skin a lot. The ones purchased commercially have too many additives which are probably not helping your sensitive skin. Hope this helps! xo Laurenda
