Cooling Blue Smoothie

blue smoothie

It is HOT here in Vermont. And not just hot but sticky. Chances are, it is where you are too. During these hot summer days, I am relishing in these things: riding downhill on my bike, fans, the hose and, most of all, smoothies!

I’ve come to realize how much I love smoothies. The thought of making one in the morning sets my day off just right. I love how they are super simple, require no measurements, can be tailored if the taste or texture isn’t to your liking, and they are creative & colorful! I just can’t get enough of these liquid dreams. I have a hunch that the smoothie will be a main character on my blog this summer.

This cooling blue smoothie gets its color from frozen blueberries. Blueberries hold a whole host of antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties. Blueberries offer these benefits: cancer prevention, eye health, cardiovascular health, improved cognitive health, a slowing down of the aging process and blood sugar regulation. These beautiful berries are da bomb and the frozen kind make this smoothie sweet and cooling.
