Superfood Coconut Blueberry Smoothie

July 26, 2015

Author Notes: I've been tinkering with several smoothie recipes to demonstrate at a superfood-related workshop at my local library. This one is my personal favorite. Whether or not you believe the superfood hype, believe me when I say this smoothie is delicious AND easy to make! Be sure to use the type of coconut milk found in the refrigerated section of the supermarket, NOT the canned variety.
If you have fresh blueberries, freeze them overnight for best results.
