Blueberry Banana Smoothie

I know summer isn’t officially over until September 22 but, I am feeling a little pressure to make more smoothies before the fruit goes out of season. I had a lot of blueberries and bananas on hand so I made a blueberry banana smoothie. I can’t wait until tomorrow morning to have another one. YUM!

Blueberry Banana Smoothie www.thebearfootbaker.comBlueberries taste great and I have read that there is a new study that shows if you eat blueberries, you can improve your memory. With all the thyroid issues I have, I need all the help I can get.

Great Blueberry Smoothie www.thebearfootbaker.comI froze several pints of these so I could enjoy them all year. I also canned some green beans and froze corn. I think I am becoming a fruit and vegetable hoarder! Maybe I am prepareing for the long cold snowy winter we have coming. (Yes, I think it is going to snow a lot this winter.)

If you drink a smoothie in the winter, you don’t have to worry about it melting. Just saying.

Supplies for Blueberry Banana Smoothie:

2 cups fresh blueberries
1 banana
1 cup low-fat frozen yogurt
1 tsp. of honey
ice (optional)

Blueberry Smoothie Recipe www.thebearfootbaker.comI fully intended to use ice in the blueberry banana smoothie but, I didn’t use it in the picture. I made another and added the ice. I like it both ways so it is up to you if you add it or not.

I also added a little honey. I heard local honey helps people with allergies and I am testing it. So far nothing but, I know honey is good for you. It is made by bees so it has to be good for us.

Here are more smoothie and lemonade recipes for you to try. I think I want to make one more before summer ends. What flavor do you think I should make?
