Blueberry Lunch Smoothie
I like my lunches to be light, delicious, and healthy - especially during the week. I’m working from home and need something that also gives me energy and a bit of sweetness. I had 7 pounds left of a 10-pound bag of frozen blueberries in my freezer staring me in the face. I love blueberries and don’t want to waste them. So, at least twice a week for the past month, I’ve been making the following blueberry smoothie for lunch - and I LOVE IT.
