Delicious Black Raspberry Smoothies

It’s the season for black raspberries – Yum! We picked black raspberries recently, and I thought a smoothie would be a great thing to use them in.  I tried it, and sure enough, it was delicious!  This smoothie got rave reviews from my family, plus it’s very simple.

Here’s the recipe:

Black Raspberry Smoothie

2 cups of black raspberries

2 cups of vanilla ice cream  (approximately)

1 cup of milk


1. Blend all ingredients together in a blender until smooth.

2. Garnish with extra black raspberries if you like.

3. Enjoy!


If you want your smoothie to be a little thicker, add some ice cream to it.  You can also try putting it in the freezer a little bit to firm it up.  If you want it to be more liquid, add some milk.

Try adding a puff of whipped cream to make it look (and taste) even better!
