Black + blue super smoothie

I just realised that the guts of a whole drawer in my freezer has been comendeered  by fruit that I have purposely frozen for smoothies. 

It's actually a super idea to do rather than buying frozen fruit that potentially has freezer burn, buy juicy fresh Irish berries and freeze with the intention of whizzing up in smoothies in the not to distant future :)

So we are all coming to the realisation that the more colourful the food the more benificial it is for our health and well being. And on that list of rainbow foods are the rich blue blueberries and the deep purple blackberries, they are full of vitamins and antioxidants but when combined make the most fantastic speckled plum colour tones.

For this recipe you will need:
1 cup of blackberries
1 cup of blueberries
1 cup of Glenisk natural yogurt with mango

Simply add the three ingredients to your blender, I have used Glenisk's mango yogurt this time as I found the sweetness of the mango softened the sharpness that the blueberries and blackberries can often bring to the smoothie.

If you have frozen your fruit before hand like myself it can take a little longer to reach the smooth consistsancy. Once completely blended you can then pour your smoothies through a sieve to remove any seeds from the blackberries .
