Who says you have to add dairy to make a smoothie? Make this delicious ready to go smoothie in a flash using all fresh fruit! The blackberries give this smoothie its delicious color, the bananas make it thick and rich!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 banana, ripe (or 2 small)
  • 1 cup blackberry (I use fresh)
  • 1 cup fresh orange juice
  • 1 12 tablespoons sugar (or to your desired preference)


  1. Put all ingredients in blender and blend until smooth.
  2. Add more orange juice if you like your consistency thinner.
  3. Taste your smoothie, you may want to add more or less sugar to your own taste.
  4. Makes 1 generous sized portion.

Good base recipe you can customize to your taste. I added strawberries as well and a little bit extra sugar since the blackberries I had were particularly tart. I prefer a slightly thicker consistency but this was ok.

Great smoothie! I like my smoothies best without yogurt or dairy in them and this was so good! Thanks for posting Bev!

This was a good smoothie - I didn't need any sugar as the berries I had were frozen with just a bit of sugar on them. I preferred half a banana and DH preferred the whole banana. Thanks for a light snack
