I wrote a post a few months ago about my absolute favorite smoothie- BMS (Banana, Mango, Spinach) Smoothie– which I drink almost every morning for breakfast. I have not grown tired of it (it is still my favorite), but lately I’ve been enjoying blueberries! Mmm!
In addition to their delicious, sweet taste, blueberries offer many benefits for our health! Here is a list of some of the health benefits these berries offer:
High in Vitamin K, Magnesium, and Vitamin C.
High antioxidant capacity
Help with blood sugar regulation (low glycemic index)
Improves Cognitive, heart, and eye health
I choose to add a large portion of spinach to this smoothie, which makes the color turn out to be a bit more of a brownish purple.
