Blackberries are really dark blue. There are a few different varieties including Marionberries, Boysenberries, and Loganberries. Regardless of which type used, this Blackberry smoothie is very easy-and so very good!

All by themselves, blackberries are rich in vitamin C and fiber. And, its also easy to turn this blackberry smoothie treat into a nutrition powerhouse just by adding a tablespoon of Chia seed. Chia is a natural seed that adds a large measure of nutrition including heart healthy, cholesterol fighting omega 3 fatty acids and antioxidants. Even better, unlike Flax, Chia doesn’t have a taste of its own so adding it here won’t change the delicious results.

In your favorite blender mix:

1/4 cup of milk (2%, soy, low-fat)
1/2 cup of frozen blackberries
1 container of Dannon Light & Fit Blackberry Yogurt
1 tbsp. Chia seed

Mix in your smoothie blender and top with two or three fresh blackberries. Not only does it taste good, but its a really good recipe for a smoothie diet. And adding Chia will bring all the more nutrition including heart healthy omega-3 fatty acids.
