Blueberries are my favorite fruit next to apples. You can be assured that if you visit, you will find blueberries in the freezer and apples in the fruit bin. I rely on these for healthy snacking.
A Blueberry Banana Smoothie is a low calorie, nutrient dense snack.
Bananas are quite an opposite fruit of blueberry, yet when paired together give you the best of both fruit worlds. Banana uniquely adds a creamy texture to just about everything. I have a friend who puts some banana in his butternut squash soup. No kidding.
The best way to make smoothies is to freeze the fruit. In this case, freeze the blueberries and bananas, and use some fresh orange to brighten it all up.
I use a Vitamix, but you can use a very strong blender as long as it has the power to crush the fruit into liquid. We love our Vitamix because it is built to last a life time.
I’ve been telling you about my Every Other Day Diet lifestyle. This fits perfectly, as it’s low cal, and a great sweet pick me up. You can add non-flavored protein powder to make this a complete meal.
