Final 1-2
Doesn’t this look just delicious and refreshing? Guys reading – make this with the kids and bring this to Mom on Mother’s Day! She’d love and appreciate a little protein pick me up made out of whole ingredients. Just check out all of the goodness that goes into this smoothie:

Ingredients-8

I got out of making smoothies for awhile when I was doing my Whole30. They frown upon you making a drink out of your foods – it’s more about making sure you have all the wholesomeness of your ingredients. But long-term, it’s nicer to be able to have a refreshing smoothie every now and again!

And you can’t beat the healthy ingredients in this smoothie. The Rolled Oats and Chia Seeds pack a little extra punch for that protein.

It’sis a perfect way to start your day! It’s full of protein, fiber, and nutrients that will fill you up and give you energy.

Blackberries are the star of the show in the smoothie, so be sure to use the ripest, sweetest ones you can find. If your blackberries are tart, you’ll need more sweetener to balance it out.

We threw in a few strawberries for flavor and color, but you can leave them out altogether or use a different kind of fruit. For that matter, you can customize this using any fruit you like.

To freeze your blackberries, line a large sheet pan with wax paper and spread the blackberries out so they dont touch. Freeze until solid, and then transfer them to a Ziploc freezer bag.
