I used a large frozen banana because I wanted to skip the ice. The sugar was optional, I left it out. I used Trop 50 orange juice. One of the best smoothies I've ever had. I loved the combination of blackberries, strawberries, banana and orange. This is great for when you want something sweet but are watching your calorie intake.

Very berry indeed. I whipped this up after a long hot morning walk. It hit the spot. I had to use blueberries, no blackberries at the store. I poured the rest into a Popsicle mold and made ice pops with it. I enjoyed them even more.

I make this for kids all the time before we make the adult version with vodka and triple sec. The sugar isn't necessary at all with the amount of sugar in OJ. Delicious flavors and a beautiful color. Drink up!
