There is something about the New Year and everyone feeling the need to want to start eating and drinking healthy. Well this Blueberry Almond Smoothie will do the trick. It is satisfying and healthy with each sip.
I thought for my first post of 2014 I would bring to you a smoothie. I know for me after the holidays, I always feel I need to cut back on my calorie in take. Since October it has been nothing but heavy foods and desserts. So I try to lighten it up a bit. Add more soups and salads to my normal diet and add healthy drinks as well.
Do you know that blueberries and almonds are also good for the heart? So we are killing a whole bunch of birds with this one stone. Meaning, we have something good for our heart, good for our body and good for my taste buds. Well that one I added. The entire family enjoyed this one. It is similar to a peach smoothie I made, but I had to make a few adjustments. After making it 3 times I think I finally got it right for the consistency and taste! Hope you ENJOY it!!
