Triple Purple Berry Smoothie

Hola Amigos...Here is the smoothie of the week...straight to the point today, lol...why you say, because I'm excited to share this beautiful, delicious and Purple Drink with you!
This smoothie has an extra step, totally worth it though! Recipe as follows:

Triple Purple Berry Smoothie

1 1/2 Cup Blueberries
1/4 cup Sugar
1/4 cup water
1 1/2 Cup Blackberries
1 Cup Grape Juice
1 Cup Vanilla Soy Milk (or 2% regular milk)
2 Cups Blueberry Vanilla Greek frozen yogurt ( I tried the new B&J with swirls of graham crackers, yummo!)

In a small saucepan over medium heat, cook the blueberries, sugar and water until it starts to boil. Turn the heat to low and simmer the mix for about 5 minutes until it begins to thicken and the blueberries begin to burst.

Remove from heat and let it cool until is no longer too hot to touch.
In a blender add blackberries, grape juice, soy milk, frozen yogurt and blueberry syrup. Blend until smooth serve and enjoy!


      You can have it just as it comes from the blender

Or add a swirls of the blueberry mix,

Enjoy it from a tall glass, or a small, add more blackberries!

Whip Cream and Sugar...

I mean..you can go on forever with this purple nectar!
The extra step gives it a depth in sweet flavors to play with the tad acidic flavor of the blackberries and grape juice!

I hope you enjoy the smoothie of the week. I'm very proud of it's Royal Purpleness! lol
Have a great weekend my friends, and remember everything tastes better with a Pinch of Love!

  10. Rats, I don't have grape juice of this would be my breakfast smoothie tomorrow. Hmmm, wonder if cranberry juice would work as well.

  11. Hi! Stopping by from The Wondering Brain weekend blog hop. This looks insanely good and I have been wanting to try the new B&J's Greek Yogurt ice cream, but wasn't too sure about it. Now that I have heard from someone that's it's good I can give it a try, as well as this smoothie. Was already following on FB, now following on G+.
