Blackberries are so yummy and they contain an incredible amount of nutrients that it would be good to have them in your diet on a regular basis. One cup of blackberries contains half the daily recommended amount of Vitamin C. These beautiful dark blackberries are extra high in polyphenols, which are a type of antioxidant known for their cancer-fighting abilities.
I add glucomannan to this recipe to give it a more creamy texture. If you don’t have glucomannan you can make this drink without it, but it will have more of an icy texture.
This recipe calls for a scoop of collagen for added protein, it will help satisfy your appetite longer. Collagen also has many health benefits. When I use it I can tell a difference in my joints, they feel better – less noticeable and my hair and nails grow stronger and longer.
