I have been having this for breakfast for over 5 years. I vary the ingredients from time to time. Its loaded with super foods and great anti-oxidants. I love it following a long run as well. Add matcha green tea to the smoothie to jack up the anti-oxidant levels. - Nbert —nbert

Test Kitchen Notes

Nbert’s Blueberry Smoothie packs a wallop of nutrition – and it’s super tasty to boot. The lovely violet-blue color is really something to behold. I enjoyed half for lunch and it energized me for the whole afternoon. A tablespoon of chia seeds stirred into the second half of the smoothie made for a satisfying late afternoon snack, the time of day when I’m usually grabbing for junk food. My banana could have used an extra day of ripening, so I added 2 teaspoons of agave syrup to my smoothie for a tiny bit more sweetness. I’m looking forward to making this again! - mrslarkin —mrslarkin

I recently have adjusted the recipe to include nutritional powerhouse such as spinach and kale, and cacao powder. Add the greens, you won't even taste them. The cacao powder also add some good flavor if you like chocolate.
