Toasty Blueberry Smoothie
Toasty, creamy, and tangy — this protein-rich shake tastes a lot like cheesecake! But, unlike most desserts, it’s full of ingredients that will give you lots of energy for your day.
Grater or zester (adult needed)
Citrus squeezer (if you have one)
Blender (adult needed)
frozen or fresh blueberries
milk or plain yogurt or a combination
Juice and grated zest of 1/2 lemon
Put all the ingredients in the blender.
Put the top on tightly. Turn on the blender to medium speed and blend until the mixture is smooth, 30-60 seconds.
Divide the smoothie equally between 2 glasses and serve right away, or store in a thermos or covered in the refrigerator, up to 4 hours.
* If you’re allergic to nuts, substitute 1⁄4 cup toasted wheat germ, oats, or sunflower seeds for the pecans.
