Creamy Banana Blackberry Smoothie

Creamy and super quick banana blackberry smoothie!

It’s colorful, it’s thick, it’s delicious, what else could you want?

One of my favorite things about this smoothie is its dark purple color. 

I used frozen bananas, which gave the smoothie extra thickness and coolness to it.

Smoothie Variations And Recipe Notes

Blackberries blend with many different ingredients. 

This means you can customize this smoothie as you please. For example, swap ingredients or add extra ingredients.

Here is a list of some variations I have personally tested and loved:

  1. More Creaminess & Protein: If you are not avoiding dairy, you can add 1/2 cup of cottage cheese or yogurt, for extra creaminess and protein.
  2. Tasty Nutty Variation: Swap the chia seeds, or keep them, and add 1 tablespoon of almond butter. Make sure it’s unsweetened though.
  3. Citrus Twist: Instead of almond milk, use fruit juice, such as orange or apple juice.
  4. Leafy Green Power: Incorporate a handful or two of leafy greens, such as kale. This additional add-in won’t impact the flavor.

Recipe FAQs:

Yes, you can use dairy milk. Do note that if you do, the smoothie will not be suitable for a vegan diet.

I Don't Have Frozen Fruit - Can I Use Fresh?

You can absolutely use fresh fruit instead of frozen, but this means the smoothie will not come out as thick as mine did.
