Sweet Banana Blackberry Smoothie

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Hey!  I'm posting a RECIPE, guys - with numbers!  Hey hey!  Write it down in the calendar, it won't happen often!

Seeing so many people speaking of juice and enjoying yet another one bought from someone else, I decided to try my own.  And I was pleasantly surprised at the results.  It turned out divine!  All you need is a blender and a clean glass!


  • 1 medium banana
  • 1/2 cup of blackberries - which are extremely popular here in Colombia, as opposed to raspberries, but these will do just fine as well
  • 1/4 cup of coconut water, which I got from a street vendor, but if all you have access to is coconut milk or almond milk, that will be fine also
  • 3 small ice cubes


Throw it all in your blender and whirrrrrr until smooth!

This is delightfully tangy and sweet at the same time, while adding that slightly nutty kick from the coconut or the almonds.  Yum!

Makes whatever portions you want, depending if you're a big juice drinker like me or not.

    Voted. Mmmm, it does sound good! So in the last few days you have actually a) posted a recipe; b) baked a cake, and it came out well??! Is this an impostor who has hacked into SnakeWitch's account??!

      LOL! Yes, this is Annie's evil twin, using her blender! Ha! Seriously, I adore cooking, but never take the time to actually write down recipes and end up literally re-creating a whole new dinner every day. However, for breakfast, I am usually lazy and end up just picking up a fruit and eating it as is. It's very good for your stomach, too, so better that way. As for the cake, this is definitely a rare case. Like I've said, I've only ever managed to bake cookies properly in the past, and it might be mostly because my mom created a vegan recipe for me... ! Otherwise, other than my peanut butter bombs and microwave chocolate and peanut butter pudding, everything sucks. This was good.
