Blackberry and Banana Smoothie

My husband and I have been trying to loose some weight lately.  We were both stuck and unhappy with how our bodies felt, so we started working together.  One of the best things we did was to start drinking more smoothies!  Ones with whole healthy ingredients and full of yummy goodness.  If I have one for breakfast I will sip on it all morning, and because these are packed with healthy calories you will feel full.  I make a big one and take it with me to the park so I'm not tempted to snack on whatever sugary things my kids are eating,  I've even had them for dinner when in a hurry.  There are so many countless things you can mix to make these, the possibilities are endless.  Here is just one of my favorites!

Blackberry and Banana Smoothie

In a blender mix together:
-2 bananas
-1/2 c. blackberries
-1/2 c. rolled oats
-6oz. (small can) of pineapple juice (make sure its pure and not from concentrate)
-1 c. baby spinach leaves (you can add more or less depending on your likes)
-1 T. chia seeds (if you haven't heard of these, look them up!  I bought mine at Costco
            and they can go in anything and really make you feel full!)

after fully blended you can add 1/2 c. of ice if you want it cold but don't add too much or it will make it watered down.  Blend until it is as smooth as you can get it and enjoy!

Pin It!
