This is the easiest way we've ever found to keep up our resolutions, at least on weekdays, all year long (think frosty shake for breakfast--what could be a better treat?!)! Credit for our love affair with smoothies goes to Self Magazine's periodic detox issues, most notably for us September 2013! This Frosty Blueberry Smoothie is a riff on those as we've been experimenting and enjoying ever since.
Frosty Blueberry Smoothie
1 cup unsweetened almond milk
1 cup low fat Greek yogurt
1 – 2 handfuls spinach, kale, or spring mix salad greens
1 cup frozen blueberries (substitute mixed berries and/or frozen cherries if desired)
½ cup frozen pineapple (substitute 1/2 frozen banana if desired)
Water as needed to thin to desired consistency
Add ingredients to blender and blend for 2 minutes. Serve in a glass--with a spoon as needed. Serves 1 – 2.
If we have avocado on hand we sometimes add a 1/4 cup for some good fat. Or, because some of us like a savory smoothie we sometimes add a teaspoon of olive oil and a handful of fresh parsley too.
It's a great way to start the day on the right side of getting enough fruit and vegetables.
