This can be served thicker, in a bowl, and can be optionally made with a banana, which will give it a nice pudding texture. Or, it can be prepared thinner, to be drinkable, by adding coconut water or milk, or your favorite nut milk, and skipping the banana.

Blackberries and Black Raspberries:

Blackberries are sweet and a little bit tart. They are often compared to raspberries. They are sometimes confused with black raspberries. The two fruits are very similar, and are related to each other. Blackberries have a smoother, hairless exterior and retain the core when picked. The core of the blackberry is fine to eat. Black raspberries are hollow after they are picked, just like a regualar red raspberry.

They each have a distinct flavor, and both differ from the red raspberry.

Try them both out, when you find them, for a nice variety, and to make a decadent, royal colored smoothie.
