It’s “Smoothie Week” here at Gimme Some Oven! So to kick off our week of literally eating the rainbow, we’ll be featuring the berry-licious color – PURPLE!
I’m sure many of you have noticed before that whenever you tend to add in some blueberries or blackberries to a smoothie, the purple color of the berries often wins over the other ingredients. But this recipe is purple through-and-through, featuring a combination of your favorite berries (such as blackberries, blueberries, strawberries, raspberries, or even cherries), and then accented with some rich pomegranate juice and a little banana (for texture and sweetness). It’s packed with antioxadents, delicious flavor, and of course…that fabulous purple color. :)
I also love this one because it’s not overly-sweet. The berries provide a fresh, slightly-tart kick. But if you’d like to sweeten your smoothie even more, feel free to just add in an extra banana, an apple, or some vanilla yogurt. Enjoy!
You’ll love this purple smoothie recipe, featuring fresh blueberries, blackberries and strawberries. It’s simple, delicious, packed with vitamins and ready to go in less than 5 minutes!
3 cups frozen berries (I used 1 cup each of blueberries, blackberries and strawberries)**
1/2 cup pomegranate juice
1/2 cup ice
half a banana
Combine all ingredients in a blender and mix until smooth and well-combined. Serve or freeze immediately.
**I prefer to use frozen berries in smoothies — either fresh berries that I have frozen, or berries I’ve purchased already frozen at the store — to avoid adding in too much extra ice. But fresh berries totally work as well. Just add in extra ice until it’s the temperature you’d like. :)
YUM! I love berries in smoothies :) (minus the part where i always get seeds in my teeth!)
is this just one serving?
It was way too thick, icy and sorbet like, I had to add water but the taste was great. This makes a LOT
We appreciate you giving this a try and are glad you enjoyed the taste! Next time (to make it less frosty), you can just skip the ice, or use fresh berries instead of frozen.
