Blueberry smoothie bowl

The other day I whipped up a blueberry smoothie bowl for an afternoon snack.

Blueberries are considered a superfood. They have been shown to protect against heart disease and cancer, and can also help maintain bone strength, mental health and a low blood pressure.

A type of flavonoid called anthocyanin gives blueberries many of their health benefits and is also responsible for the characteristic blue color (the bluer the better…) Flavonoids are plant compounds that have a powerful antioxidant effect. Some rank blueberries as the number 1 superfood for antioxidants.

I try to eat blueberries every day. Usually I put some on top of greek yoghurt or in a smoothie. And don’t worry if you don’t have fresh berries available where you live. Frozen fruits and berries work just as fine, are are perfect in a smoothie. I always try to keep the freezer stocked with things like raspberries, strawberries, blueberries, mango and avocado.
