Blueberry Banana Yogurt Smoothie

Blueberry Banana Yogurt Smoothie

It is time for one more smoothie of the day! Blueberries, banana with low-fat Blueberry yogurt, almond milk in the mixture give you not only delicious taste but lots of nutrition.

It also gives you an amazing boost of energy, not to mention a healthy dose of antioxidants, potassium and last but not least probiotics and prebiotics.

Probiotic is a type of good bacteria, and microorganisms may help with digestion and offer protection from harmful bacteria. While prebiotic is nondigestible carbohydrates that act as food for probiotics.

When both of them are combined, they create a synbiotic. Fermented dairy products, such as yogurt, are considered synbiotic because they contain live bacteria.

During all these years working as a food blogger, I challenged myself to learn about food; good, bad and ugly. Putting on the side that I honestly love eating. We are talking about full-blown fatty foods like pork belly to the sweet baklava that hits you in the nerve in your head from the sweetness.

However, I have to say I try to eat healthy as much as possible, or at least balanced meals. I eat a good amount of fresh fruits and veggies, grains, carbs and proteins on a daily base.

As far as dairy goes, I do love good yogurt with homemade granola, as well as milk, and I can’t forget the cheese. Cheese is ma life, man!

To cut the story short, I would suggest that you drink one smoothie a day and preferably in the morning. You will intake that healthy dose of vitamins and coat your stomach with this nutritious yumminess, rather than anything heavy. It is even great over cereals.

Also, I usually do not add sugar if I am making a smoothie for myself, but for this one, you really do not need the addition of sugar because yogurt and fruits are sweet enough to keep your sweet tooth fully satisfied.

You can use any yogurt brand that you prefer. Instead of almond milk, which gives the little creaminess to the smoothie, you can add water, and ice, or soy milk, reg. or fat-free milk. You can keep your fruits overnight in the freezer, it will give you refreshing “wake up” smoothie in the morning. Add seeds, eat with granola or just simply pour it over your cereals -it’s fantastic either way!
