Very Berry Breakfast Smoothie

Such a pretty smoothie to start off your breakfast in elegant style~ you deserve it!

A refreshing drink, but a healthier way to start off the day . A quick burst of energy to get you started in the morning. I thought this was so delicious it must be good as a cocktail too! So the other night, by adding a shot of raspberry rum, I made this healthy smoothie into a wonderful cocktail (not so healthy, smile). So, you don't have to convince me that this is a versatile drink for anytime of the day, oh and then I also thought a healthy cocktail is there such a thing?

Seriously refreshing, but I am trying to stick to the healthy version these days! So here is the recipe~

Berry Smoothie:
1/4 cup blueberries
1/4 cup blackberries
1 banana
1/2 cup apple juice
1/3 cup ice, or raspberry flavored sorbet

Put all ingredients into blender.
Blend until thick and all ice is smooth. (if you prefer to have no seeds it will take a little time but you can put through a small strainer to just use the pulp, I prefer this without the seeds from the blackberries.

MMMMM. I keep avoiding this smoothie craze, but the longer it goes on the better the smoothies get. I think resistance is futile.
