Smoothie of the Day

Banana Blueberry Smoothie

For a rich source of potassium and an even richer source of antioxidants (the highest known source) without sacrificing taste, this is the drink for you. A diet rich in blueberries lowers blood cholesterol levels while improving glucose control and insulin sensitivity, lowering the risk of subsequent heart disease and diabetes. But honestly, I love it because it tastes good. The kids drink it as an after school snack and I use it as a breakfast replacement with a handful of granola thrown in for fiber. 2 bananas 1/2 cups blueberries 1 cup plain yogurt Peel bananas, slice and place on a cookie sheet. Put in freezer and freeze until solid. Remove from freezer and place in blender. Slice berries and add to blender. Pour in yogurt. Blend until smooth. Pour into glass and serve. For a creamier version, substitute the plain yogurt with vanilla yogurt and a dash of pure vanilla extract. Per 16oz glass Calories: 408 Carbs: 34g Fat: 2.8g Protein: 3.5g
