RECIPE: Tropical Blueberry Smoothie



Smoothies are both nutritious and fun to make for the young and old(er) alike. When the grands come to visit I love that I can give them something that feels like a treat while it pumps them full of antioxidants and vitamins. I pour them each a glassful and then pour whatever is left into my own glass to give me a bit of extra energy for the rest of the day.

The varieties are endless. What is your favourite smoothie flavour?


Liquid of your choice (milk, juice, almond milk or greek yogurt)

1 cup blueberries

1 pineapple spear

2 large strawberries

1 small banana

4 ice cubes

A bit of agave syrup (just a tiny bit if necessary to sweeten)

Add 1/2 cup liquid to your blender jar first and then the fruit through the hole in the lid while it is running.

Add ice cubes last and then a bit of extra liquid to make the right consistency.

Blend until creamy smooth and enjoy!
