“bloo” Juice Morning Power Smoothie

Smoothies are a very popular way to start the day. When building the ultimate healthy
smoothie it is important to blend together four essential ingredients – a liquid base
[preferably a high antioxidant juice like blueberry], a good protein [Greek yogurt or
your favourite protein powder], a healthy fat [flax seeds, walnuts and avocado all
contain Omega 3 fatty acids] and a high fiber carbohydrate [highest fiber fruits are
blueberries, blackberries, raspberries, peaches, pears, apples and oranges].
This smoothie is packed with all the right ingredients for that power boost first thing
in the morning or you can enjoy this smoothie anytime of day when you feel like a
delicious metabolism boost.
