Last week I gave you 10 reasons why you should be eating blueberries. And here is one more… a blueberry smoothie is incredibly delicious! Although fresh and organic blueberries are second to none, frozen can easily be used once blueberry season is past. For now, though, blueberries are still in season, and fresh blueberries are readily available at local stores and farmers’ markets.
This smoothie also makes a fantastic post-workout snack. Packed with antioxidants and protein, it is a great way to recharge your body. In fact, a blueberry smoothie is a great idea for any meal, or to give your kids as an after-school snack. Feel free to play around with the ingredients – add other fruits or even some vegetables (cucumbers, spinach, kale… be creative!).
1 scoop protein powder
1/2 cup blueberries
3/4 cup orange juice
1 tsp lemon zest
1 tsp coconut oil
Stick everything in a food processor and enjoy!
