Blueberry Blast Smoothie Recipe

blueberry blast smoothie to boost breast milk and support muscle recovery

If you’ve been following our recipes, you know we like to sneak spinach into our blends. But don’t worry, once it’s whirled up with frozen blueberries you can’t even taste the vitamin-packed leafy greens. And by the way, those berries, they’re packing some serious immune-boosting vitamins, too—vitamin C, K, and manganese, plus a blast of heart-healthy, cancer-fighting antioxidants (1, 2, 3, 4).

Ingredients 

  • 1/3 cup Mama Love Protein
  • 1 cup Spinach
  • 1/2 Banana, peeled
  • 1 cup Blueberries, frozen
  • 1 cup Water

Instructions

Place all ingredients in a blender. Blend on high until smooth. Add ice cubes for a thicker smoothie, or more water if you prefer a thinner one. Serve cold.
