Sweet! It’s A Blueberry and Banana Smoothie
This fresh berry smoothie recipe is the perfect use for the influx of reasonably priced fruits coming this blueberry season. To make a blueberry smoothie that much better, combine it with banana! Create this balanced drink to serve as a breakfast on the go, a dessert, a meal, or just when you feel like an extra burst of nutrients that also tastes a little sweet.
Blueberries are outstanding when it comes to their nutritional value. They are high in vitamin K, known to benefit bones, the heart, and our ability to recall. Blueberries are also high in anthocyanins, what gives the fruit its signature dark shade. Anthocyanins are brilliant at prevention, making them anti-inflammatory, anti-cancer, and anti-viral. When combined with banana, this berry smoothie recipe becomes a powerful nutrient-dense meal.
Banana is more than a good source of fiber. A single banana is also rich in B6 as well as potassium, vitamin C, and manganese; all ingredients that add up to health and wellbeing.
To make your blueberry and banana smoothie, simply pop all the ingredients into the blender, and blend until you’ve reached your desired consistency. Healthy cinnamon and vanilla provide a flavor enhancement, that makes the smoothie sweet without any added sugars. If you prefer a thinner smoothie, simply add more water. If you prefer a thinner berry smoothie recipe that is higher in protein and a little on the creamy side, simply add more protein-rich unsweetened almond milk.
Remember, frozen fruits are not affected by the freezing process in any way, so feel free to purchase frozen varieties in bulk so you can indulge in this healthy, sweet, and delicious smoothie all year round. Perhaps with this delicious berry smoothie recipe, it might be a good time to invest in a larger freezer!
