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!

  1. Such a fun smoothie!! I love that you used blackberries — one of my favorites! Can’t wait to try 🙂

  2. Super healthy smoothie to beat summer heat. I liked adding lime and spinach with it. Awesome recipe!!!

  3. I am not a big fan of smoothies. This sounds like a smoothie I could go for! Thank you for sharing it! 

  4. Love the idea of a BlackBerry smoothie but not a fan of spinach…any suggestions for substitution??

  5. Can’t stand bananas anymore, what could I use instead? Also does the lime juice react with the yogurt in anyway? I have not been able to figure out pineapple in smoothies because it curdles the yogurt.

    1. You can leave the banana out, but it won’t be as creamy. Just add more blackberries. The lime didn’t curdle the yogurt.

    2. Try adding half of an avocado instead of the banana. Makes the smoothie extra creamy. You wont be able to taste the avocado, once every thing is blended.

  6. I made this smoothie this morning and the lime juice reacted with the yogurt and it turned sour. How do I prevent this?

    1. Weird, I have never had this problem. I don’t let it sit before I blend maybe that is why?
