Protein Packed Blackberry Smoothie

I’ve been blogging for almost four years and sometimes when I go back and look at old posts, I cringe. Mostly at the photos.

My photography skills have progressed immensely over the years so I’ve decided it’s time to update some of my old recipes. I started with these butternut squash fries – a super easy and delicious recipe! And today I’m updating my blackberry smoothie recipe.

Blackberry Smoothie
 
I love the bright color of this smoothie and the fact that it's packed with protein from the Greek yogurt.

  1. God I cringe at my photos and I’ve only been blogging since last August!!! Love remaking things though, gives them another chance to shine!

  2. I was just browsing through some old posts last night and I was literally appalled at my photo skills back then. LoL I guess a good camera and some practice really does do wonders!

  3. mmmmm. . . Sounds so good!! I wish I could reach into the screen and Drink it!!!

  4. Haha! I always cringe at old photos too – I’ve definitely done a “redo” when it comes to photos and recipes!

  14. What a vibrant color smoothie! I have never made a blackberry smoothie so I’ll definitely have to do that soon. Yum!

  15. Haha, I get what you mean about old photos! But, I do think it is SO cool to look back at Old Photos and see how far you have come! That just shows you how much further you will go! And to be honest, when I look back at your first post, and see where you are now, it gives me full faith that I too will expand and grow! It’s very inspiring :)

  16. Love the photos and the color of the smoothie. The color reminds me of a drink Superman would drink! :) I love the recipe, I’l have to try it!

  28. Oh my goodness! This smoothie looks so pretty, and I bet it tastes super delicious! I have never used yogurt in a smoothie…does it make it creamy??

  29. Love that color!

  30. It’s been a few days since you originally posted this and I am still obsessing over how vibrant that smoothie looks. Just purchased my own set of metal straws through your link so my smoothies can look just as awesome!

    I just finished pinning your Black Berry Smoothie! and I noticed the color of the straw, do you mind me asking where you found these straws? My daughter is having a rustic wedding and we are using mason jars to drink out of, and these straws would be cool to use!

  32. This recipe is so good! I’ve fallen in love with almond milk lately, it’s proven a great replacement for soy. My girlfriend just bought me a juicer and I’ve been making my own almond milk, so much fun! Do you juice your own almonds, or which brand would you recommend?

  33. This smoothie sounds good for being healthy ha ha. I might have to try it :)

  34. Do you think this could be frozen and still taste good when thawed? I have never tried freezing smoothies. What do you think?

  35. Yummy! Got one on my fridge now.

  36. Yummy! Great recipe.
    I will give you a site in USA where I got real fruit on powder form, I mix it with milk and ice cream to go healthy. they have berries, mango, soursop, apple, pineapple, etc. A lot of fruits & veggies. Enjoy guys! http://www.freshlydried.com

  37. Oh my goodness that color is amazing! I will be including this in a smoothie round-up!
