Blackberry Smoothie

The nice warm weather is in full swing, and so I'm drinking a lot more smoothies. I don't like turning on the A/C in the apartment when it isn't really nasty hot out. So to help keep cool, I've been making smoothies like this for breakfast or lunch.

Blackberry Smoothie
Makes 1 generous servings, 4 Points+ each

What You'll Need:
1 1/2 cups frozen blackberries*
1 ripe banana
1/2 cup fat free milk
2 1/2 Tbs sugar

*Buy frozen ones or put toss them in the freezer for a couple hours. Them being frozen means you don't need icecubes, which I prefer.

The Process:
    Put all ingredients in blender. Blend until a smooth, liquidy consistency is achieved. The blackberry seeds are a little bitter, so you may want to adjust the sugar a little bit to taste.

Serve in a nice tall glass and sip to prolong the cooling effects.
