Blueberry Banana Smoothie

Talk about quick, healthy and filling! My Blueberry Banana Smoothie packs a punch of energy and is so refreshing you’ll feel like it’s a summer morning — even in the dead of winter. Full of antioxidants to fight off no-good cells and low on calories.

Can we talk about how beautiful the smoothie color is?! The cool bluish-purple color of blueberries is from the high levels of phytonutrients called anthocyanidins – those are good for building and strengthening collagen. Blueberries for the win!

Second hero ingredient in this recipe? Bananas!

And bananas, well they are one of the highest sources of potassium next to avocados. Potassium is an electrolyte that we lose when we sweat, so putting that back in your body is great for bone health!

I throw all the solid ingredients in the blender first.

Then I pour in the almond milk. I like to use unsweetened almond milk since the bananas are ripe and sweet, but you can use any kind of milk you want.
