Blackberry Nutrition

The blackberry smoothie bowl is blended to sweet, purple perfection. Hidden inside are the antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, and fiber your body needs to maintain healthy functions. That green isn’t looking as appetizing as this nutrient-rich purple, now is it?

With one of the highest antioxidant levels of any fruit, the blackberry may help reduce heart disease and certain types of cancer. In addition, the blackberry is full of flavonoids and manganese, which are needed for the normal functioning of your brain, nervous system and many of your body’s enzyme systems.

Blackberries are also full of vitamin C, vitamin K, and fiber. All these benefits at only 62 calories per cup.

Ingredients

  • frozen blackberries
  • Greek yogurt
  • honey
  • Toppings: watermelon popsicles (recipe below), cantaloupe, strawberries, pineapples, chia seeds, oats

Add some cantaloupe, strawberries, pineapples, chia seeds and/or oats to further boost the nutritional benefits of this beautiful smoothie bowl and add some contrasting textures.

How to Make it

For the Smoothie Bowl:

  • Pulse. Add the blackberries, Greek yogurt and honey to a blender. Pulse until soft and smooth.
  • Serve. Serve in a bowl and add the toppings.

For the Watermelon Popsicles (Optional):

  • Cut watermelon. Cut a watermelon in half and scoop the pulp into a blender.
  • Blend. Add a bit of honey or agave nectar. Blend until smooth.
  • Freeze. Pour the mix into popsicle molds and freeze until solid. (You can save the empty watermelon halves to use as bowls for the smoothie if you like!)
  • Serve. Serve with the smoothie bowl!

For an added nutritional boost (and pop of color), make some watermelon popsicles ahead of time. Simply blend some watermelon and a bit of honey until smooth, pour into popsicle molds and freeze.

When the popsicles are solid, add them to your bowl as an extra special way to enjoy your blackberry smoothie bowl.
