Purple Rain Blueberry Smoothie

Purple Rain Blueberry Smoothie

How about you start your morning of right with a healthy smoothie that will leave your tongue dancing for joy.  Smoothies are a great way to start your day full of nutrients.  It is a balanced meal in a cup!!  This smoothie contains 3 of the 5 major food groups. The main ingredient is the blueberries. Blueberries are considered a super food becare they are full of vitamin C,  potassium,  phosphorus,  and iron.  They contains more antioxidant power than most fruits and vegetables.  Antioxidants work by protecting our cells from damage from the environment.

1 cup of frozen blueberries
6 oz of low fat or fat free vanilla or plain yogurt
1 cup of white grape juice
1/2 banana
1 scoop of vanilla protein powder (I used Muscle Milk) 

Blend in blender and serve

We loved drinking the smoothie and didn't feel guilty about drinking it.  Because of the fiber and the protein it satisfied our hunger and kept us full longer.  This is a smoothie I will definitely be making again in the future.  It's quick, easy, and  yummy for my tummy.
