Ingredients
  • 1 whole banana , cut into large pieces for ease of blending
  • 1 cup fresh blueberries
  • 1 cup loosely packed baby spinach (OR kale, or whatever vitamin packed greens you prefer in your smoothies!)
  • ¾  cup milk (OR almond/soy/rice milk, OR blueberry juice)
  • Toppings: more blueberries or bananas , other fruits like raspberries, strawberries, blackberries, etc., any whole grain cereals, granolas, flax or chia seeds, etc., nuts, coconut. I would not recommend chocolate with this one! You can also add a little honey if you want it a bit sweeter.
Instructions
  1. Place banana, blueberries, and spinach in blender.
  2. Pour milk over the top
  3. Blend! You may have open the jar to stir a bit when the blender is stopped to ensure everything is really mixed in.
  4. At this point, you can either put it in the fridge for the morning, or continue with the steps.
  5. Pour into a bowl and top with all your favourite toppings! I recommend more fruit and something crunchy.
Recipe Notes

*IMPORTANT NOTE* There is pectin in blueberries, so once blended they will start to gel. I find it helps with suspending the solid ingredients for the smoothie bowl, but if you do not want this to happen, add ½ tsp lemon juice to the recipe, and/or reblend once the smoothie has gelled.*
