National Berry Month

July is the perfect time for berry fun!

Blackberry Banquet


Blackberries are a fruit that can be picked throughout most of the United States, and thrive in the hot summer months. It’s a fun family activity to pick your own blackberries at a local farm, or even plant bushes in your own personal garden.

Once you have picked your berries here is a smoothie recipe to celebrate the hard work!


Blackberry Smoothie

1 cup vanilla yogurt, ice cream or milk
½ cup blackberries
1 small to medium banana
2 to 3 Tbs. sugar (depending on sweetness of berries)

Place in your blender and puree on high speed to mix
