Blackberry Raspberry Lemonade Smoothie

Happy happy Friday my friends! It has been another crazy busy week! Seems to be the theme this summer! One thing I loved about summer while growing up in the country was picking berries! They always tasted SO delicious and I am sure we ate more than we paid for along the way! Haha
The other day at the grocery store they had a sample of blackberry lemonade and it was so good and reminded me of summer days! So I did some experimenting and came up with a delicious smoothie that brought me back to some summer days!

I am linking up with my fav Foodie Friday gals, Farrah from Fairyburger and Annmarie from the Fit Foodie Mama for free for all recipes!

    Oh, I love berries!! We lived in Michigan for seven years (1995-2002) and had several black raspberry bushes in our back yard. HEAVEN. I made a lot of jam and several desserts with all the goodies from those bushes 😉 These smoothies sound great with the lemon added in!
