This shake is creamy and bursting with blueberry flavor. It’s the perfect on-the-go breakfast or snack. With only a few ingredients, you can throw it together in less than 5 minutes.
Blueberries are a great choice to get some necessary nutrition first thing in the morning or on the run. These berries are low in calories and fat and have a decent amount of fiber.
Creamy Blueberry Shake (Makes 4 servings)
- 2 cups fresh or frozen blueberries, washed and sorted
- 2 small ripe bananas
- 1/4 cup honey (or sweetener to taste)
- 2 tablespoons lemon juice
- 1-1/2 cups vanilla yogurt, nonfat
- 1 cup vanilla frozen yogurt
Combine blueberries, bananas, honey, and lemon juice. Puree on high speed in a blender. Add yogurt and frozen yogurt and blend until thick and smooth.
Serve immediately in a cold glass.
Tip: To decrease sweetness, use plain, nonfat yogurt instead of vanilla nonfat yogurt.
