I followed the recipe exactly. It was very tasty and easy to make. However, you need to strain it before drinking, as the blackberry seeds are impossible to ignore. Next time I'll substitute something else for the blackberries. Read More

This is a quick and easy breakfast. The seeds from the berries were quite noticeable which didn't bother me but this may not be the smoothie for you if you want it truly "smooth." Read More

Excellent. I used greek yogurt because that was all I had on hand. Made one batch then turned around and made another because my kids and I loved it so much. Great use of this year's bumper crop of blackberries/raspberries. Read More

I have a Vitamix so that pretty much took care of the seed problem but I can see how this would be an issue without this workhorse of a blender. So I'm not so sure blackberries with their huge seeds are the best choice for smoothies. The flavor was good but we found the banana just a little distracting for a "Raspberry Blackberry Smoothie." I used frozen berries so the ice cubes weren't necessary but a little milk to thin it out was. Read More

We really enjoyed this smoothie. Followed the recipe and they are very refreshing. Hubby is on a smoothie kick as he wants to find a replacement for coffee on his commute in the morning. He asked for a raspberry/blackberry combo and I was happy to find this one. It is extremely easy with ingredients I had on hand. My fridge makes smaller ice cubes so I added a little more and it was perfect. Will make this often this summer. Thanks for sharing! Read More

The flavor was good. However it's pretty thick and there's really no liquid (milk or juice) to help get this blended up well. I'm not fond of smoothies with bits of fruit left and some liquid is what helps them blend up really smooth. It also just got stuck in the blender a lot. So there was a bit of a hassle factor involved. Also as someone else pointed out -- the seeds. Blackberries and raspberries both end up with a lot of seed to contend with and while the suggestion to strain it is a really good one (which I will try on other smoothies) I just don't see how to strain something thick like this through something that would catch seeds. Therefore even though I liked the taste I don't think I'd want to make this again. Read More

Almost like mine. But I cook the blackberries and raspberries to soften and put through a strainer to remove the seeds and have a puree. Freeze 1st until they are ice cubes and only use 1/2 banana. I use organic cane sugar instead of honey if needed because I'm not a honey fan. If it is too thick I add some V8 fusion Goji raspberry or Acai raspberry juice. That juice also adds some veggies to it as well. The puree and some fresh crushed berries also works when making a yogurt parfait with whole grain granola cereal and walnuts. 1 layer of yogurt your choice 1 layer crushed fruit and the a little puree. Again your choice of fruit 1 layer cereal and walnuts. Repeat until the glass of your choice is full. Read More

In place of ice cubes you can thin this smoothie with any favorite liquid from juice to milk. I had to strain the drink because the drink with seeds was too gritty. Then it was smooth and wonderful! For a thin smoothie leave out the banana. Read More

To use up what I had I used frozen blackberries fresh blueberries and fat free raspberry yogurt. Instead of ice I added some peach juice so it wasn't as thick (for my husband). It was delicious but rated 4 because of the blackberry seeds. Read More
