Banana Blueberry Almond Milk Smoothie

This is a great, hearty start to the day!

It's got some good stuff in it, like Almond Milk which is a dairy substitute. It's great if you're watching out for your cholesterol and want to stay away from lactose, and is enriched with plenty of fibre, vitamin E, magnesium, selenium, manganese, zinc, potassium, iron, phosphorus, tryptophan, copper, and calcium. So yeah, pretty good for you.

Then you've got banana which is also a great source of potassium which is great for your heart and circulation (get leg cramps? You may need to eat more potassium-rich foods!) and blueberries which are full of antioxidants, vitamin C and fibre.

Enough blabbing, here's the recipe-

You will need...
1 large over-ripe banana
1/2 cup frozen blueberries (use fresh if you prefer)
1 1/2 cups almond milk
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp honey (optional)

Throw all the ingredients in a blender, and process until smooth. If you like it super cold, crush some ice in there too. Alternately, you can freeze the banana beforehand to ensure its nice and frosty.

N.B. I put a tsp of flaxseed (or linseed) oil in mine also, to give myself a little Omega 3 Boost!
