Author Notes

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
