Blueberry Breakfast Smoothie

This is such an easy and refreshing way to start the day and I can't wait for tomorrow and another blueberry morning smoothie!




Are Smoothies Good for You?
As long as you limit the sweet fruits smoothies are good for you.

If you pack a smoothie with things like bananas, apples, pineapple only, it is very likely to increase your blood sugar and potentially cause weight gain instead.

Add in some vegetables like spinach, avocado and kale to balance out the sweetness.

Also, including things like chia seeds, flax seed and oats are a great way to add nutritional value to your smoothie.

Why Smoothies are Good for Breakfast
Smoothies make a great breakfast option when you’re looking for something that will fill you up and can be whipped together fast and requires no cooking.

Busy mamas love the no cooking part, right?

Smoothies are also a great way to get in more fruits and vegetables, just remember your smoothie does not have to be fruits only. Don’t limit yourself there.

I love being able to give my kiddos as many fruits and vegetables in a day as a can and a smoothie is a great way to make that happen. It can be a sneaky way to hide veggies they may not eat independently, too!
