Your average blueberry smoothie recipe is absolutely packed with vitamin C, in fact one handful thrown in to a tasty blender recipe will give you around 14 mg of vitamin C which is 25 percent of your recommended daily requirement.

This is great news as vitamin C promotes healthy gums, collagen construction and absorption of iron. And what you may not know is that a blue berry smoothie recipe will contain more antioxidant than almost any other fruit or vegetable drink.

These antioxidant help to stimulate the brain and memory as well as fighting the development of cancer and many other age related diseases such as cardiovascular disease and Alzheimer’s.

Healthy blueberries really are a super food, they are a low GI food, and practically fat free, hold only 80 calories a cup and they taste delicious. So can you afford to go without a blueberry smoothie?

Thick and Creamy Blueberry Smoothie

A personal favorite of mine this healthy blueberry smoothie recipe is a great way to kick start the day!

You can freeze the banana first if you prefer a particularly cold smoothie; however you will need to give it about 10 minutes to soften before adding it to the blender.
