RECIPE: Blueberry Banana Breakfast Smoothie

Tuesday, February 4, 2014



Blueberries and bananas are such a dynamite pair!  Blueberries are full of antioxidants and fiber; while bananas help prevent muscle cramps and aid in digestion. A ton of healthy benefits plus good flavor?  Where do I sign up. 

I love the blueberry and banana combination.  This isn't the first recipe I've shared with this dynamic duo.  Check out my Blueberry and Banana Baked Oatmeal from my previous blog, Instant Mommie.

Lately I've been a little complacent with the smoothies I make for breakfast.  While I do enjoy them and can't get enough of them or the taste in my mouth, my IG can get boring with green all over the place.  So in a vain IG effort, I whipped up this bad boy so that I can stop being the green monster, and be a Barney.  Did you get that?? Lame joke, I know.

The base of this smoothie is straight up simple.  Add in some chia or flax seeds for a boost, and even a scoop of protein powder if you want to beef it up a little bit.  Top with granola for crunchy, divine yumminess!



Blueberry Banana Breakfast Smoothie:
1 handful of frozen blueberries
1 banana (frozen or unfrozen)
Agave or Honey
Water
Optionals:
Chia Seeds, Flax Seeds, Bee Pollen, Protein Powder, Granola
Put fruit in blender/blender cup.  Add in enough water so that the fruit doesn't get stuck while mixing (you'll figure out how much once you make enough of these - you can always adjust!).  Squeeze in a little honey or agave. Add in optional flax seed or protein powder.  BLEND BLEND BLEND. Top with chia seeds and/or granola.
