Blueberry Smoothie

Sugar-Free Blueberry Smoothie Recipe

Summertime always means smoothie time for my family.  And with the record temperatures lately, this summer is no exception.  In fact, running low on frozen bananas apparently constitutes a family crisis.

We love smoothies of all kinds … except the green kind.  Yuck.

A lot of people eat smoothies for breakfast, but we think there’s nothing better on a warm summer evening than an ice cold Mango Smoothie  … or full-of-flavor Strawberry Lime Smoothie … or thick and rich Carob Smoothie.

Since there are an abundance of blueberries this time of year, I’ve been having fun with blueberries in smoothies too.

Blueberries are super high in antioxidants and fiber and have been shown to protect against cancer, cataracts, and heart disease, and help with weight loss.

What better way to eat this dark-skinned, rolly-polly, powerhouse of a fruit than in this very simple and very nourishing blueberry smoothie?
