Peach Blackberry Smoothies

June 27, 2011

I love smoothies. I don’t know why I don’t make them more often since they are so easy. Especially during these hot days of summer. Almost any combination of fruits you can think of can be turned into a delicious drink. You can even make them year round with frozen fruit. This gorgeous purple Peach Blackberry Smoothie is incredibly refreshing and bursting with peach flavor.

So, how’s it taste?

You may think this smoothie would taste mostly like blackberry, but it’s full of peach flavor. The yogurt and frozen peaches really amp up the peach and give the smoothie it’s summery, sweet peach flavor. The apple juice helps it blend all together, the bananas provide thickness, and the blackberries give a bit of tartness. The blackberry tartness with the sweet peach is such a phenomenal combination. It’s a delicious smoothie and only 186 calories per serving. This recipe serves two, so I usually drink one smoothie and pour the rest into popsicle molds for a smoothie pop later!

    I could use fresh berries and peaches too right? OR would that affect the consistency? I’m going straight to the popsicle part I think.

      It would probably be a tad bit thinner, but just as good I think. If you’re making the popsicles, probably won’t affect those. Enjoy!
