I’m a big fan of blueberries and I looove a blueberry smoothie.  Apart from tasting absolutely delicious, anything that requires minimal ingredients and preparation time is a big win for me.

Blueberries are not only low in sugar, but they also have one of the highest antioxidant capacities of all fruits and vegetables.  Combined with the nutty flavour and crunchy texture of the walnuts, which are also a great source of antioxidants as well as protein and essential fatty acids that boost brain function, this is a a yummy meal in a cup with numerous health benefits – including boosting your immune system and giving you glowing skin.

You will need:
1 cup blueberries (fresh or frozen)
2 cups almond milk
1/4 cup walnuts

Optional:
Mint (small handful)
1 lime, juiced

What to do:

1. Put all ingredients in a blender and blend until you get the desired consistency (I like my walnuts to be crunchy – if you prefer a smooth consistency blend for at least 1  minute).

2. Pour into a glass and rejoice at how good it tastes and how easy it was to make!
