Smoothie with Staying Power

For the past few weeks, Willa and I have been trying to incorporate blueberries into at least one meal every day. This breakfast smoothie is a favorite and has real staying power so you are not raiding the fridge an hour later.

It’s also full of protein, vitamins and minerals, healthy fats and oils, and antioxidants.  We are both trying to dial back on the sugar so this isn’t a decadent smoothie but I promise you your skin and your body will be giving it raves.
