Todays smoothie was inspired by one favourite herbal teas..Blackberry & Mint. Now blackberries are my favourite berry..when they are plump and sweet..lol. A perverse part of me still enjoys them even when they are slightly sour and make me shudder. lol It almost feels like a crime against berries to put them in a blender for a smoothie. But given our garden is covered in blackberry bushes I know there is always a good supply. Phew!!

Blackberry & Mint Smoothie  Serves 4

2 cups of spinach
1 1/2 cups of blackberries
1 pear
2 mint leaves
2 cups water

Place everything into a blender and blitz until smooth. Enjoy!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope your day is a fantastic one...
