I love to start my day with a smoothie. It has to be one of the easiest and quickest breakfasts to throw together that is also super healthy.
Blueberries are rich in fibre as well as vitamins A and C, while low in saturated fat, cholesterol and sodium. They are also a good source of antioxidants, and can be eaten raw, cooked with other foods, or dried for use in tea. No matter what form blueberries take in your diet, their many vitamins and nutrients can be good for your skin. Whether you suffer from acne, broken capillaries or splotchy skin, the nutrients in blueberries will help.
Makes one glass: –
1 ripe banana
1/2 a cup of frozen blueberries
1/2 a cup of coconut water
1 tablespoon of chia seeds
1 scoop of fibre boost or ground flaxseeds
2 scoops of protein powder
1 tablespoon of almond butter
2 medjool dates (optional)
Simply pit the dates then place all of the ingredients together in the blender and blend until smooth, this should just take a minute or two. If you like it a little runnier, add some extra water at the end.
Sip and enjoy!
