A delicious berry smoothie is a great way to start your morning! Blackberries are one of my favorite berries and so when they came in season this year, I couldn’t help but eat them by the pint!
Can I freeze fresh blackberries?
Yes, you certainly can freeze fresh blackberries! When blackberries come in season, I also love to stash a few pints in my freezer for later! You simply put them on a cookie sheet, let them freeze, and then once they are frozen, you can put them into a freezer-safe zipper bag for later.
Can you blend blackberries?
Of course, you can blend blackberries! Simply add them to the rest of your smoothie ingredients and blend together until smooth. Blackberries like all berries may leave a few seeds behind, but if you have a high-powered blender (I love my Vitamix 780), you should be able to create a very smooth smoothie without any bits or seeds.
Are blackberries good for you?
Yes, blackberries are very good for you! They are high in antioxidants and contain vitamins A, C, E, and B. They also have potassium, magnesium, and calcium. Blackberries are very good for you and are a great fruit to incorporate into your regular diet.
What are blackberries and blueberries good for?
Blackberries and blueberries are amazing in smoothies of course! They are also yummy to eat on their own, or on top of a big bowl of ice cream! You should check out my Blueberry Banana Smoothie recipe HERE and of course, keep reading for my Blackberry Smoothie Recipe below.

What blender is best for smoothies?
