Blackberry Lime Smoothie-this refreshing blackberry smoothie has a kick of lime! It is great for breakfast, snack time, or dessert!
We have been enjoying warm, sunny days at the park. Yay for spring! After playing hard at the park, the boys are ready for a snack and I love making them Blackberry Lime Smoothies. The smoothies are a great refreshing and healthy treat for spring.
I love making smoothies for our boys because I can load the smoothies with fruits and vegetables. Vegetables? Yes, this smoothie has spinach in it, but you will never know it! See, I am sneaky:)
Along with the blackberries, I also used a frozen banana because it makes the smoothie extra creamy!
The smoothie is also made with Yoplait Original French Vanilla yogurt, which is rich in calcium, contains essential Vitamins A & D and is a good source of protein. Over the last few years, Yoplait has been busy making changes to their yogurt. They have reduced sugar by 25% in Yoplait Original, removed high fructose corn syrup, and removed aspartame in Yoplait light. Yay!
The blackberry and lime combo is fantastic! The hint of tangy lime is a pleasant surprise and will keep you sipping until you get to the bottom of the glass. Luckily, this smoothie is easy to make so you can make it all of the time! It is great for breakfast, snack time, or even dessert.
Celebrate spring with Blackberry Lime Smoothies! They are sure to bring a little extra sunshine your way!
