Blueberry Cinnamon Shake

blueberry cinnamon shake

Frozen blueberries, raspberries, and blackberries are healthy freezer staples that taste as good as fresh but are a lot budget-friendlier compared to the fresh version. Their antioxidant load doesn’t get damaged by freezing and the deep chill makes them perfect for smoothies.

Serves 1

Ingredients

1/2 cup packed frozen blueberries
1/2 cup plain, reduced-fat yogurt or kefir
1/3 cup vanilla protein powder
4 ice cubes
2 tablespoons chopped almonds, pecans or hazelnuts
1 tablespoon chia seeds
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon stevia (optional)

Directions

Place all ingredients in a blender along with 1/2 cup water and process until smooth. Serve immediately.

Swaps and Substitutions
