Vibrant Blueberry Vanilla Smoothie

This is my go-to smoothie for a between-meal snack, or as a healthy way to 'carb up' before a workout. It takes only 5 minutes to prepare, and I always make sure to have frozen bananas and blueberries in the freezer for when I need to make this smoothie on the run.

You can also turn it into a more complete meal-substitute, breakfast for example, or as a post-workout drink by adding some almonds or almond butter for a source of protein and healthy, whole-food fat source. This will help to keep you fuller for longer.

Other add-ins would taste delicious as well, such as coconut meat from a baby coconut or strawberries, fresh or frozen. Feel free to get creative with this one.
