Ever make a smoothie too thick to slurp from a cup so you add more liquid and toss it back in the blender? You don't have to do that anymore because this is a smoothie you eat with a spoon!
Instead of granola with some sort of milk... (insert: boooring), this recipe will turn your granola/smoothie upside down -- right into your cereal bowl. I love making super thick smoothies and then adding one of my favourite granolas as a topper for some crunch. I also personally find it more fulfilling.
(And yes ... my nails are blueberry stained! Those colour pigments are potent!)
Part of healthy eating is actually chewing your food.
I have probably mentioned this in previous blog posts, but the act of actually chewing food both prepares your gut for better digestion and promotes feelings of satiety.
I called this recipe "blissful" because this smoothie will definitely make your belly happy and be kind to your digestive system too.
The ingredients are pretty simple and if you're lucky, fresh blueberries are in season where you live! If not, you can use frozen blueberries too. I prefer wild blueberries over cultivated when they are in season because they are superior to cultivated ones nutritionally-speaking.
Blueberry Health Benefits
I also addedcoconut butter for good fat, fiber and protein, avocado for their beautifying anti-inflammatory fatty acids (and more fiber), bananas for B6, potassium and a natural sweetness and finally protein powder for a healthy dose of plant based protein to boost metabolism and keep my belly satisfied.
It serves 1 to 2, depending on how hungry you are.
Of course, if you prefer, you can totally enjoy this blueberry bliss smoothie in a glass. It is incredibly refreshing and energizing!
So remember, the next time you make a smoothie too thick, just eat it with a spoon!
