I turn to my Blueberry Smoothie most of the time, in fact it is what my body needs after I workout and I can feel it taking me through my recovery phase.
This smoothie is good for many reasons. Beside giving me an energy boost, it actually worked amazingly for my skin and my digestive system. Blueberries and bananas are two amazing fruits, combine them with honey, and you get a magic potion.
I’m not exaggerating, and here is why:
- Blueberries strengthen the immune system, since antioxidants found in them are more than any other fresh fruits or vegetables.
- One serving of blueberries gives you 25 percent of your daily value of vitamin C.
- Blueberries reduce the risk of heart diseases.
- Blueberries break down belly fat.
- Blueberries improve your memory.

- Bananas are high in vitamin B6.
- Honey prevents heart disease.
- Honey improves the skin.
