Green Smoothies With Blueberries
The next time you are making green smoothies, why not consider adding blueberries to the list of ingredients? Blueberries contain high amounts of certain antioxidants, which can reduce your risk of developing certain types of cancer. Blueberries are also an excellent source of manganese, dietary fiber, and vitamins B6, C, and K. To get started on making green smoothies with blueberries, here is a great recipe for you to try!
- 1 cup blueberries
- 1 peach
- 2 cups fresh baby spinach (or other leafy green)
- ¼ avocado
- 1 stalk celery
- 1/2 – 1 cup water
Each of the ingredients of these green smoothies should be added to your blender one at a time and blended together until smooth. This recipe will yield approximately 2-3 cups of green smoothie, but it can easily be doubled if you need to make more. If you would like to make this recipe more wholly nutritious, you can add a scoop of protein powder to the blender.
A single cup of these green smoothies contains only 217 calories, and you are guaranteed to love the distinct, delicate flavor of the blueberries. Try out these green smoothies for yourself, and let us know what you think!
