I have fallen off the workout bandwagon once again. I seem to go in fits and starts.  The only encouragement I have is that my last workout stint lasted a whole month.

It’s very sad, I know. But I always get way more active in the spring and summertime. I would much rather build a garden fence or chop wood for exercise than sit and do reps on a machine all day.

Watch me Make this Healthy Breakfast Drink:

I was raised on a tiny farm where we did lots of active things. My calories were burned cleaning out the animal pens, (4 H projects are great). It’s seriously hard work to shovel horse, pig, cow, and sheep waste for any amount of time!

I was rewarded with yummy home grown fruits and vegetable juice that my Mom would make. One of our family favorites is Homemade Grape Juice.

Our Blueberry bushes are getting big enough to get several handfuls of ripe, organic, blueberries at a time!

Blueberry Banana Smoothie is SO Healthy!

I love the idea of getting vitamins and protein from a smoothie. It’s so easy to blend up a bunch of healthy foods in one nutritious meal.

I’m a lazy eater so I like to make food I can feel good about without a whole lot of effort on my part.

Our blueberry banana smoothie fits my lifestyle perfectly. This is a healthy smoothie that tastes like dessert. High protein smoothie recipes like this one satisfy hunger too. My kind of living.

My mom and dad enjoy Green juices. Follow the link to get started with green juice recipes. I prefer fruit smoothies. Or ANY smoothies. So yummy!

Why Organic Blueberries?

Blueberries are packed with health benefits and are best eaten raw. Fortunately, blueberries can be frozen without losing any of their health benefits. Be sure to buy organic, flash frozen, unsweetened blueberries.

It’s like eating candy to pop these little, frozen, health gems into your mouth. Frozen blueberries are perfect for a healthy blueberry smoothie.

Yummy blueberry banana smoothie packed full of health factors!

Banana:

Bananas are a delicious, low glycemic, high fiber fruit. Bananas contain many vitamins and minerals.

Chia Seeds:

Chia seeds have 11 proven health benefits

Instructions and Tips for this banana berry smoothie:

  • Freeze a couple of bananas cut in half ahead of time (maybe the night before) so you can make more than one of these if you want. They are good!
  • Put all ingredients into a blender and pulse until the smoothie is well blended.
  • Tips and tricks:
    • Frozen bananas make a thick cold smoothie without the ice.
    • You can use vanilla yogurt in place of plain. Be sure it’s Greek style.
    • You can put ice cubes into the smoothie if you would like it to be a thicker consistency.
    • I use coconut milk because it only has 80 calories per serving. (any milk would do)
    • I use protein powder because I’m a vegetarian and I get a lot of my protein from smoothies.
    • You may leave out the powder if you don’t want to use it.
    • Toss in either ground flaxseed or chia seed to boost breast milk production.

NOTE: Turns out all the straining we do making Greek Yogurt,( learn how to make your own here to save tons of money) takes most of the lactose out too.

So this Yogurt smoothie is much more digestible for Lactose sensitive people. Give this recipe a try if dairy bothers you but Greek yogurt doesn’t.

If you are INTOLERANT of lactose the Greek Yogurt and this recipe may cause you some gastric trouble.

I have been making banana blueberry smoothies for years I'm 70 my blood pressure is usually 172 /78 . Or in that range. My cardiologist is always surprised. I tell him what I do. He says whatever you're doing keep doing it your heart is strong blood pressure is beyond excellent like that of a teenager's. I make mine. I have a large blender so I make a lot usually quart and a half. I use unsweetened almond milk about 3 to 4 cups. Two bananas 2 bananas.. cup and a half of blueberries. And here's what makes it very delicious should I use 100% all natural peanut butter. Nothing else. I used two huge heaping tablespoons of this chunky peanut butter. Now that's what makes it the blueberries peanut butter and bananas. Try this I guarantee you'll love it.

I make one similar almost every morning only I can and do drink cows milk so I add a Tbsp.of coconut oil. Combined with Chia seeds is great for energy! I also add about 1/3 c. of oatmeal. And sometimes a little vanilla extract if I have it.
