A word of caution, however. Be careful– you just might become addicted to starting your morning with these healthy and energizing smoothies… every day!
- 1 banana, peeled
- 1 cup frozen blueberries
- 1/2 cup milk (your choice)

- Combine the ingredients and blend until completely smooth.
I always have frozen blueberries in my freezer, but if you're using fresh blueberries, add 1 cup of ice cubes to the mix.
