You're going To Love This Wild Blueberry & Lemon Smoothie
This wild blueberry and lemon smoothie has been my go to smoothie recipe this Summer! It has just the right amount of sweetness when I in the mood for a little treat and the lemon keeps the smoothie super bright and fresh! I love to use the Wymans frozen wild blueberries for that extra punch of antioxidants! This smoothie is also great to hide heaps of spinach in, which is perfect for anyone who is a “picky” eater or has an aversion to anything green and veggie filled!
Fruit containing smoothies combine best with other fruits or neutral greens. An example of neutral greens are baby spinach, mixed greens, kale, romaine, and vegetables like cucumbers, sprouts etc. You may notice that my smoothie recipe doesn’t include, protein powders or “superfoods” like chia seeds, hemp, flax etc. This is because fruit quickly cleanses the body and is digested in only 30-45 minutes. Therefore, it’s best to eat fruit alone or only pair with greens. When you combine fruit with proteins like nut butters, seeds and nut milks, the fruit ferments on top of the slow to digest protein and will create lots of gas, bloating and digestive discomfort. If you need to add, or wish to add, more liquid to your smoothie I always use filtered water or harmless harvest coconut water. I only recommend harmless harvest because they make a raw coconut water (buy in the refrigerator section of most grocery stores) so it’s filled with live enzymes and living sugars. When you consume boxed coconut water on the shelf your basically drinking water and sugar AKA Kool aide.
Food Order : When to Drink The Blueberry & Lemon Smoothie
Since most smoothies contain fruit, it’s best to consume smoothies on an empty stomach or after drinking a green juice. I feel like I crave smoothies during the Summer months, so I will often have my green juice first, then a few hours later this blueberry smoothie, more as a lunch! If you don’t green juice and like to eat breakfast, this smoothie would be best eaten as your breakfast.
