I have been really into blueberry-based smoothies lately. Might be because I’m totally loving the beautiful purple color of my foods lately, haha
At least it’s all-natural coloring! Definitely no food coloring in these.
So, if you saw my smoothie add-ins post yesterday, you’ll have seen all the add-ins that provide you immune-boosting properties, antioxidants, and vitamins. This blueberry banana smoothie is yet another boost of antioxidants thanks to the blueberries! Great way to get in your daily nourishment in a deliciously creamy and thick smoothie!
Smoothies are such a great addition to your day. If you make it a routine (I typically make one for lunch or post-workout), think about all the health benefits you are getting in one glass! Sometimes it’s far easier to drink your nutrients than to eat each individual ingredient, you know?
Especially if you are always on the go and too busy to actually sit down and eat (that could be a separate issue in and of itself but that’s beside the point).
I’ve been working out a lot more these days thanks to Fitness Blender and utilizing my basement, and because of that, I like having smoothies post-workout because after you burn all those calories and sweat, you need to replenish your body with whole foods and real ingredients.
What’s better than a smoothie packed with delicious add-ins?
Give this blueberry banana smoothie a try! My favorite is adding an extra spoonful of peanut butter to it to give it a more blueberry-peanut-y flavor that’s so rich and decadent! So much yum!
