Blackberry Lemonade Green Smoothie

Pin It

In case you all are curious, I am still on my green smoothie kick.  It did not end with my Green Smoothie Week.
Although I do have to admit that I am not having one every afternoon like I used to. 
But they are still my absolute favorite way to sneak in some extra leafy greens for myself and for baby girl.  Seriously all- she sucks them down like they are the best thing ever.
Like she would have a green smoothie over an Oreo almost any afternoon.
I will take that any day. ;)

I am also having fun playing around with new flavors for my green smoothies... and making them maybe not so green occasionally. 
Like with this Blackberry Lemonade Green Smoothie I am sharing with you all today.
I decided to add some of my favorite summer flavors- juicy blackberries & fresh squeezed lemonade- to this creamy, delicious, and good-for-you green smoothie...
