Blueberry Smoothie Bowls have become a recent obsession, combining frozen blueberries, Greek yogurt, a banana, and milk. They can be a meal replacement, a snack, or even dessert. SO good and refreshing.

Happy First Day of Summer!

Summertime is smoothie time, and that’s perfectly alright with me. My boys do a lot of yard work, and we all try to get a workout in most days, so smoothies are often our go-to snack after a sweat session.

My guys are big eaters, so while this doesn’t work for a meal replacement for them, it does for me. Because why not?

If you’ve been following along here for awhile, you know that we are HUGE fruit lovers. I like to load up when berries go on sale, and have been stopped in the grocery store by people asking if I juice. Well, not so much with fresh fruit. We do use fresh fruit in so many ways, one being a topping for smoothie bowls. But we also eat it for a snack – like candy, and we mix fruit and yogurt, topped with granola. I also love using it in muffins or quick breads.

Blueberry Smoothie Bowls have ALL the good stuff.

  • fruit – lots of it
  • dairy
  • nuts
  • chia seeds

In other words, these have healthy carbs, calcium, protein – 13 grams!, fiber, potassium, and iron. There is no added sugar.

The best part? You can make these smoothie bowls in five minutes, especially if you have a great blender. My guys surprised me with a Vitamix for Mother’s Day, and I’ve been a smoothie queen lately. Love it SO much.

Let’s talk about blueberries and how they get a superstar status in terms of health.

  • Blueberries are low in calories (84 calories in one cup) and high in nutrients.
  • Blueberries are high in antioxidants, protecting us from many diseases and helping in the aging process.
  • They help to lower cholesterol and reduce blood pressure.
  • They seem to benefit the brain, improving memory and delaying age-related decline.
  • Blueberries help to lower blood sugar levels and improve insulin sensitivity.
  • They may be useful in preventing urinary tract infections.
  • Blueberries accelerate muscle recovery after strenuous exercise.

So in summary, blueberries totally ROCK! Add them to your diets STAT. 🙂

Ahhhh summer.
