Smoothies are a great way to start your day. They're quick and easy, and help nourish your body with the central nutrients. The best way to know the exact ingredients in your smoothie is not picking one up on the way to work, but making one for yourself. All you need is a blender, fruit and water or milk.
In addition to fruit smoothies containing vitamins and minerals they also can help you reach the recommended intake of fiber. In my opinion this makes smoothies way superior to just juicing. Smoothies make a fantastic meal replacement if you're trying to lose or maintain a healthy weight, and are considered a great way to get your recommended daily fruit intake.
One of the best things about living in Florida is the ease and availability of the fresh seasonal produce we have. As April is rolling around and finally some of the other places in the country are getting a let up from the snow, Florida has steadily been basking in the sunshine. With spring coming along, April is a time where we are able to enjoy fresh local blueberries. We love Fresh From Florida.
When it comes to the type of foods I like to eat, I lean more towards the wholesome and fresh foods that come from my local produce stands.
In Florida something is always in season it seems like. Although I enjoy the fresh produce that I am able to delight in year-round, blueberry season in April is and has always been one of my favorites.
When it comes to making smoothies I make sure I pick up some delicious and fresh blueberries and though I eat most of them fresh, I freeze about half of them to add them right into my morning smoothie. Frozen fruit always works best as it means I don't have to water it down with ice cubes.
I love the sweet taste of blueberries in my morning smoothies so here is one of my favorite recipes that I hope you too can enjoy.
2 bananas, cut into 2 in. chunks and frozen
½ c. whole milk
2¼ c. frozen blueberries
1 Tbsp. honey
½ c. Greek yogurt
Place frozen banana chunks and ¼ c. whole milk into blender and blend until smooth.
Add blueberries, honey, Greek yogurt, and remaining milk. Blend again until smooth or desired consistency.
Pour into a glass and enjoy
Makes about 3 cups.
