Meal Plans for Weight Loss

Berry Good Energizing Smoothie (only 3 ingredients)!

The other day at the grocery store, two cases of blackberries somehow slipped into my cart (no, really).  I didn’t even realize it until I was unloading the groceries.  I’m still not even sure if I paid for them!  To be honest, I hardly ever buy blackberries.  I usually go for blueberries or strawberries…. maybe God was trying to tell me I needed the antioxidants in them.. Lol.

So, I decided to make a simple, three ingredient smoothie only using bananas, blackberries, and greens. One thing I’ve noticed over the years is the more simple I keep my meals and/or smoothies, the easier it is to digest, which gives me instant energy and more alertness.

Seriously, how delicious does this smoothie look?!  It was so tasty I just had to share it with you guys!  And, talk about a fireball of energy!!  I had energy for hours after drinking this, and it really filled me up.  I even made a 16 oz jar of it for my boyfriend the other day, and he fell in love with it.  He was even bragging about it to his co-workers…. you know it’s good when a guy brags about a health drink to his “manly” friends.. Lol!

I suggest drinking this as a meal replacement in the morning or afternoon.  It could also serve as a snack for those who are highly active.

Serving Size (16oz)

Ingredients:

  • 2 Ripe Bananas (must be ripe with spots)
  • 1 Handful of Blackberries (about 1/2 of the small case)
  • 2 Handfuls of any leafy green (spinach is good)

Directions:

Add 3-4 ice cubes and all ingredients to blender. Blend well. ENJOY!

  1. YUM! LOVE this one. BUT a case? A case would be a flat. Or do you mean a container? Like 1/2 lb? Or 1/2 cup? Please let us know cuz 1/2 of a case IS A LOT!! :0))

    • Hi Rose.. sorry for the miscommunication.. I was referring to those little 4oz cases they come in at the grocery store 🙂 But, essentially, I typically use 1 handful of berries.
