Blackberry Smoothie

Blackberry Smoothie

I did the greatest thing this weekend. I moved my blender from the back of the cupboard where it was hiding, and put it on my counter. Why is this so great? Because when something is out of sight, it’s also out of mind, and that was the case with my blender. Purees were made in my food processor, and smoothies were all but forgotten. But, when I did the big spring clean in my kitchen this weekend, I found it and I moved it to my counter knowing that if I was ever going to use it, putting it right in front of my face would be the only way to do it. So, because I always have a freezer full of blackberries (thanks again, grandma!) I knew that this would be the fruit I used for my first smoothie. And while this isn’t the first blackberry drink I’ve created, it is the first smoothie I’ve made using this tart fruit. I’m betting it won’t be the last.

1 cup frozen blackberries$2.99
1 cup chocolate milk $0.41
1 teaspoon vanilla $0.22
1 teaspoon brown sugar $0.01
Just a pinch of salt $0.01

Total cost $3.64
Cost per serving $3.64

1.) Place everything in a blender and blend until smooth. You can strain it afterwards if the seeds really bother you, but I didn’t do it with mine and it was fine.

2.) Serve and enjoy!
