I just love the color of Blueberries when blended.
When I see Blueberries, it reminds of the Nightlock berries from The Hunger Games movie. In the movie, Nightlock (blueberry-like) are berries that are infamous for the lethal poisonous juices that are inside. It kills the person who eats it even before it reaches the stomach.
Okay, enough of the Nightlock berries and let’s proceed with the post…
Of course, these Blueberries are edible and not poisonous. Blueberries are called the antioxidant super food. Like other berries, these indigo-colored berries have many health benefits. I may not love eating them as raw but I love to put them on smoothies.
Blueberries and Pineapple Smoothie
- 1 cup fresh Blueberries, washed
- 1 cup fresh Pineapples, cut into chunks
- 1/3 cup Greek/skimmed yogurt
- 1/3 cup skimmed/soy milk
- Ice cubes
Put everything in a blender and blend well. Transfer to a glass and drink immediately.
The ingredients are just are so simple but you’ll get loads of benefits from the two fruits used in this smoothie. Blueberries are anti-oxidants, provides cancer prevention, good for bladder and a lot more. On the other hand, Pineapples are good source of vitamin C, potassium and they are also high in fiber and low in calories.
