Blackberry Basil Ginger Smoothie

A smoothie is the perfect breakfast to enjoy on a hot summer day when you don’t have a lot of extra time in the morning. This one is packed with fresh flavors of this season, with sweet blackberries, fresh basil, and anti-inflammatory ginger which gives it a little kick!  I add in some protein powder to make it a bit more substantial, but you can leave it out if you want it to be more of a snack than a meal. This is really delicious and good for you as well!
