Did you know blackberries are the fruits with the highest levels of antioxidants? Yep, they most certainly are. Which means they fight free radicals, keep you healthy, and keep your skin looking young and fresh.

Not only are they tasty, but blackberries are also full of phytoestrogens which reduces symptoms of PMS, food cravings, bloating, and even hot flashes making them your best friend at that ‘time of the month.

Speaking of which, I don’t know about you, but I generally crave sugar when I’m on my cycle. Instead of reaching for a sugar-laden bar of chocolate, reach for this BerryBliss Mylkshake instead!


  • 2 cups fresh blackberries
  • 2 cups freshly blended coconut mylk
  • 1 cup ice
  • 1 tablespoon honey

Optional Add Ons:

  • 1 tbsp. Chia or Hempseeds
  • 1 tbsp. Coconut Shavings
  • 1 frozen banana
  • Garnish with fresh fruit pieces.

Instructions: Combine ingredients in your high speed blender and blend on high until smoothie. Enjoy!  Serves you and a friend.Or perhaps just serves you twice!
