I first test made this smoothie recipe on a recent camping trip. My 11 year old sous chef gave it a thumbs up so I knew I had a winner. Blackberries grow prolifically everywhere in the Pacific Northwest and smoothies are another simple way to make use of these Vitamin C, naturally low glycemic and fiber packed fruit. The combination of blackberries, cacao and greens not only tastes great together but it will give you energy to start your day. Not only that but it will get your gut headed in the right direction for the day.
