Energizing Blueberry Lemon Smoothie Recipe

I try to drink at least one smoothie everyday. It can be a challenge when you think about dragging out all of the items needed to make it. So what I do is prep the ingredients and place in a freezer bag until ready to use. I just pop it out, liquify the greens with 1 cup of liquid, then slowly add the rest of the ingredients using the smoothie setting on my blender. This recipe was too good not to share! Let me know if you'd like to see more of my yummy smoothies!

1 1/2 C Blueberries (fresh or frozen)
1 Lemon (wedged/peeled/unseeded)
1 Giant handful of greens (I used baby spinach)
1 frozen banana (to make it creamy and sweet)
1 C liquid of your choice (apple juice, hemp milk, milk, etc.)

Add sweetener if desired.
(I also added in some granola and Boku Superfood Super Cacao Nibs for added depth!)

Add spinach and 1 C liquid
 (I used hemp milk to keep this smoothie vegan)
 Blend using liquify setting.

Add blueberries and lemon wedges.
Blend on smoothie setting.

Finish off by blending in a frozen banana.

Pour into a glass, top with blueberries and granola, and enjoy!

 Yay for my first smoothie recipe post!
Enjoy ;)
