Wild Blueberry Smoothie

A refreshing, healthy, delicious shake made with all ingredients mixed in a blender

I have this smoothie every morning. It's a great start to my day.

Put ingredients in a blender in the order below:

  • 1 banana
  • A handful of baby spinach (You won't taste the spinach in the finished smoothie)
  • Optional small handful baby kale
  • Optional half a cucumber with skin off and no seeds
  • Optional scoop of protein powder
  • If you take supplements, you can open the powdered ones and add the powder
  • ¼ chopped green apple
  • 1.5 – 2 cups frozen wild blueberries
  • 1 ½ - 2 c water or Vita Coco coconut water (it’s unflavored and adds electrolytes)
  • You can add organic frozen fruit, like strawberries, mangos, peaches, etc. but remember, it will make more smoothie

Blend until smooth. You may want to add more water/Vita Coco if the smoothie is too thick for your taste. It will take longer in the blender to get the blueberries to be fully blended. You may want to add crushed ice but I find that the frozen fruit is enough.

Wild blueberries are smaller than regular blueberries and so offer a higher skin-to-pulp ratio which means less water, more antioxidant-rich pigments, more fiber1, and 33% more brain-health anthocyanins (responsible for the colors, red, purple, and blue and are also anti-cancer, antidiabetic, anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, as well as help prevent cardiovascular diseases.*) 

This smoothie is very healthy, really tasty and slightly detoxing.
