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.

Protein Packed Blackberry Smoothie

Blackberry Smoothie


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


  • 1 cup of fresh blackberries
  • 1/2 of a frozen banana
  • 1 – (6 oz) container of plain non-fat/low-fat Greek yogurt (I used Chobani)
  • 4 cubes of ice
  • 1/23/4 cup unsweetened almond milk or other type of milk, if needed
  • a few drops of liquid stevia or other natural sweetener, to taste


  1. Place blackberries, banana, yogurt, ice cubes and 1/4 cup milk in blender and blend until fruit is pureed and ingredients are well combined.
  2. Add stevia to sweeten and more milk to get the desired thickness (if necessary).

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

        hmm… I’m not 100% how it would be. I would just make it and put it in the fridge until you want to drink it — as long as you plan to drink it within 24 hours or so.

      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?

        Hi Travis. I’m glad you like the recipe! I’ve made my own almond milk in the Vitamix but most of the time I buy Almond Breeze unsweetened vanilla almond milk.

      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!

      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!

      This smoothie looks delicious! And I love that it combines so many good-for-you ingredients. I’ve been on a big blackberry kick as of late and I love that they showed up here. Such a great way to boost the fiber-content of this already fab beverage.

      Beautiful! I was planning on using this recipe for my project (the one I e-mailed you about a few months ago), so I will def use this gorgeous picture.
      PS Is that a stainless steel straw? Where did you get it?

      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!

      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 🙂
