Benefits of a Healthy
Blueberry Smoothie

A healthy fruit smoothie recipe will make you one of the most nutritious — and delicious — meals on earth. Healthy fruit smoothies are loaded with phytonutrients, vitamins, minerals and enzymes that come in a whole-food form.

In addition, when fruits and vegetables are blended, the plant fibers are broken down just like when you chew them; the blender literally does most of the “chewing” for you. And chewing food more thoroughly means that you'll absorb more of the nutrients.

Healthy fruit smoothies retain the fiber from the fruits and the vegetables you use. This improves digestion and helps your body naturally rid itself of toxins. Fiber also helps you feel more satisfied, and maintains that feeling longer.



Blueberries Make Great
Healthy Smoothies

Blueberries contain significant amounts of antioxidants called anthocyanins, compounds that give the blueberry its deep color. In addition, blueberries also contain ellagic acid, another phytochemical that has been shown to prevent cell damage.

Blueberries are a very good source of vitamin C, manganese, and both soluble and insoluble fiber like pectin.

Recommended Starters
for Your Blueberry Smoothie Recipe

Most smoothie recipes call for a liquid ingredient to allow the solid components to move around inside the blender and give your smoothie the right thickness. The beverage you choose will largely determine how healthy your smoothie turns out.

What are the best beverages to use to make your smoothie as healthy as possible? The most common choices are  water, cow's milk, yogurt, soy milk, nut milks, or fruit juice. To discover the pros and cons of each one, click on the link below to see my page on how to make a smoothie the healthy way.

Blueberry Smoothie Recipes

Whenever a smoothie recipe calls for milk, I recommend you use any type of non-dairy milk product instead — there are many different ones to choose from: hemp, almond, soy, rice, etc. These are healthier alternatives to dairy foods, and are extremely easy to keep on hand, since they have a rather long shelf life.

  1. Start by pouring the liquid ingredients for each smoothie recipe into your blender.
  2. Toss in your solid ingredients: fresh or frozen fruits and vegetables.
  3. Add any optional ingredients, if you like — blending as you go.
  4. Add more liquid to reduce the thickness of your smoothie, ice to chill it, or more fruit to thicken your smoothie.
  5. You can substitute ingredients at your whim — it's fun to experiment!
