RECIPE: Blueberry Blast Smoothie

Sadly, summer is over and gone with it, blueberry season; but thank goodness for freezers!

Here is the recipe for a delicious blueberry smoothie, complete with antioxidants, protein and the micronutrients you need to feel as bright as a summer day! Again, the measurements are approximations, people, just throw in a little of this and a little of that and see which combinations YOU like best!

In a blender mix:

1/4-1/2 cup frozen blueberries

1/4-1/2 cup frozen spinach

1/2 cup plain yogurt

1/2-1 cup water (you want it thick or runny?)

1 dash of cinnamon

2 Tbsp of honey, maple syrup or agave (more or less depending on your sweet tooth needs)

I add a tsp of maca powder, a super food, because I’m super! So if you’re super, you should too!
