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
- 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).
