Are you missing those warm summer days as much as I am? Sometimes I love the rain and the coziness of soups and warm dishes, but other days all I want is to drink a smoothie in the heat, under the beating sun. Today is one of those days, so I decided to pull out my frozen blueberries and coconut milk: the cold weather won’t stop me from feeling tropical!
That’s the beauty of smoothies. No matter the weather, mood, or cravings, smoothies can always deliver. They can lift your mood, help you to start the day in a great mood, and fill you up with benefits that you definitely need. Using whole fruits and veggies in your smoothies gives you the full benefits of them, as detailed in this blog post.
Creamy and full, this blueberry smoothie gives your body antioxidants and hydration. The hint of vanilla will take your taste buds to a tropical island and that touch of lemon zest perfectly complements the blueberries and coconut flavors.
So, let’s put it together! You will need:
Coconut milk and coconut water are hydrating and
Blueberries fill you with vitamin K, helping your blood to clot.
Vanilla adds a touch of smooth flavor to this smoothie!
Banana is rich in potassium and can lower your risk of stroke.
Lemon supports digestion and helps to build your immune system.
