Blackberry Ginger Detox Smoothie

blackberry smoothieYou know by now that as Resident Bacon Babe, I normally opt for fatty pork for breakfast….BUT, my dude is sick with some sort of cold/upper respiratory thing so I decided to make him a delish smoothie to help flush out the crud.  Poor guy couldn’t really taste anything, but I did, and this is pretty freaking awesome.  Maybe even enough to convince me to give up my bacon a couple days a week.  I added a Tb of coconut oil for the countless medicinal properties….you could also add some spinach for green effect, but I didn’t have any in the fridge.

And notice the multiple uses for the mason jar….Just this weekend I was sipping a big ‘ol margarita while painting our living room!  Another reason for the uh, DETOX necessity!
