Made with only five simple ingredients, this blackberry smoothie with coconut is not only a pretty hue but is incredibly creamy and delicious! This frozen berry smoothie makes for a great start to your day or can be enjoyed as a mid-afternoon snack.
As you’ve probably heard me say before, hubby and I love smoothies and always enjoying trying all sorts of delicious combos. One of our faves is this chocolate peanut butter smoothie.
Like pretty much all smoothies, there’s nothing complicated here.
Throw your ingredients in a blender, whiz up and you are good to go.
Plus, you know what’s in there — no syrups, no weird ingredients, just pure natural goodness. Also, it’s so much cheaper than any smoothie that you are going to buy in a store.
My local coffee shop sells a small smoothie for $5! What? I could make a smoothie at home for a fraction of that price and no line-ups. Score! Plus, you can totally stay home in your comfy clothes!
Why We Love This Blackberry Smoothie Recipe
- It’s made with just 5 ingredients.
- The recipe uses frozen berries (which are pretty much always readily available).
- Like most smoothies, it takes minutes to whip up (so it’s great for a quick breakfast or snack).
- With blackberry and coconut, it tastes delicious!
Can I Use Another Type of Milk?
If you don’t need this blackberry smoothie to be vegan, you can use regular dairy milk.
Alternatively, oat or soy milk are other (non dairy) options.
If you want to add extra texture and flavour to your smoothie, any of these toppings work great:
- Frozen or fresh blackberries
- Shredded coconut
- Chia seeds
- Protein powder (mix in when you are blending for extra oomph)
- Flax seeds or meal
Tips and Variations
- Use frozen blackberries! The frozen berries give the smoothie lushness that you wouldn’t get by using fresh.
- This recipe yields two blackberry smoothies, but you can easily half (or double) depending on how many you need.
- If you don’t need this fruit smoothie to be vegan, you can use Greek or Skyr yogurt instead.
- For a different sweetener, you can use honey instead of maple syrup (this would make the smoothie vegetarian, not vegan). Alternatively, you can omit the sweetener, if you like.
