Creamy Blueberry Smoothie

Blueberries are superstars in terms of their unique health benefits.  They are high in antioxidants and low in calories (80 calories in one cup).  They help to maintain blood sugar levels, and have great cancer fighting properties.   Their beautiful purple colour make them a delightful addition to any smoothie.  You can use blueberries fresh or frozen, recent studies showed that blueberries do not lose antioxidant properties when frozen.

I was feeling like something creamy and sweet but still healthy, so I made this smoothie:

Ingredients

1 medium banana

1 cup blueberries

100 ml coconut milk

 50 ml soy milk

100 ml water

Add all the ingredients in the blender and blend for half a minute.

Enjoy!
