“Shake it Up” Monday

I have been playing around with blueberries all week. They were ridiculously on sale at the grocery store, so after eating them out of the bowl for a few days, I started freezing and processing my hoard.

I have a preferred flavor profile when it comes to blueberries: blueberries, vanilla, and cinnamon go fantastically well together. If you add a little citrus in there (like lemon or lime) it is simply sublime.

In a effort to capture that taste in my breakfast, I came up with a shake that tastes more or less like blueberry pie. This is what I will be drinking until the frozen blueberries are gone.

Blueberry Pie Shake

Ingredients:

  • Three handfuls of frozen blueberries (about 1 C.)
  • 1 C. vanilla almond milk
  • 1 banana
  • 1 scoop vanilla protein powder
  • 2 tsp.-1 Tbsp. cinnamon (depending on your taste)

Step 1: Put everything in a blender. Put on the lid.

Step 2: Blitz like crazy.

Step 3: Pour it into a glass and enjoy the summer!

I love blueberries because they are full of antioxidants and vitamins. I also love blueberries because if The Renaissance Man hadn’t wanted to marry me, all I had to do was wave a bowl of blueberries in his face. They are his weakness (but don’t tell him I told you).

  1. Gardening is my personal pastime for the reason that it genuinely helps me to enjoy and loosen up. I love to grow flowers both in the house and also outdoors. My favorite plants are tropical decorative plants and flowers as well as fruit bearing plants.

  2. Wow! Blueberries are still expensive here -you are lucky! My youngest LOVES 2 things above all else: milkshakes and blueberry pie. Guess whose going to have to suck it up and pay for those blueberries? My baby boy is going to be happy anyway- and that’s all that matters, really. Thanks!
