This is one of my oldest blog recipes but still a favorite smoothie at our house. Very refreshing and a wonderful summertime treat or dessert! Just made some last night in fact. This recipe is not suitable until the nuts and seeds rung of the Atkins OWL carb reintroduction ladder. It is perfectly OK for Paleo-Primal folks as well. The sweetener I used has no carbs, so if you use one with a bulking agent, you will need to add in those carbs to the numbers below. Of course, you can always add protein powder to this if you wish, but be sure to add in those carbs to the stats below.

6 T. coconut cream (this is NOT cream of coconut bartenders use, which has added sugar & carbs)
3/4 c. blackberries
½ c. water
about 3/4 c. ice cubes
Your preferred sweetener to taste
DIRECTIONS: Put everything in the blender and let ‘er rip until all is smooth and ice is no longer in chunks. The coconut cream will thicken it adequately. Pour into a glass and ENJOY!
