Black and Blue Smoothie

Do you live in the south?
It is ridiculously hot around here.
So smoothies have become my friend this summer.

This smoothie is simple, sweet and tangy.

I've really stopped measuring when I make smoothies. Just getting it in there to estimation and get it done so I can cool off. So I'll give you my guesstimate. Tweak to your taste.

(makes two servings)
1 & 1/4 cup frozen blackberries
1/2 cup blueberries
1 cup yogurt
2 Tbsp sugar
1/4 cup orange juice
4-6 ice cubes

So, have you figured out the name?
Blackberries and blueberries.
And a bit of orange juice makes this black, blue and yellow like a bruise.
Never knew a bruise could be so tasty!

Put your frozen items in first and crank up the speed so everything gets beaten and blended.

The berries give it sweet, the orange juice gives it a little bite.
If you don't have orange juice a small scoop of frozen concentrate will work. Or a few slices or orange but check that the film on the orange gets destroyed or removed since it won't get up a straw.

How is everyone else getting through this heatwave?


  1. I don't measure for smoothies either. Thanks for linking up to Must Try Monday.

  2. I'm allergic to all fruit (technically fruit sugar - fructose) but that looks delicious!


Thanks for sharing your thoughts!
