Are you looking for a healthy breakfast smoothie? I have one for you! This recipe for a Blueberry Rhubarb Vanilla Smoothie is another easy, quick, and healthy recipe! You know from my last post on Rhubarb Pudding Cake all about the great nutrient value you get from Rhubarb. Blueberries are on the superpower list of fruits for what it can do for you.

From Medical News Today…they say this about Blueberries: “Warding off heart disease. The blueberry’s fiber, potassium, folate, vitamin C, vitamin B6 and phytonutrient content, coupled with its lack of cholesterol, all support heart health. The fiber in blueberries helps lower the total amount of cholesterol in the blood and decrease the risk of heart disease.”
I think we need to get back to whole foods! Doesn’t matter if you blend whole foods in a blender, you still get tons of nutrients. You actually are making it easier for your body to access the nutrients when you blend the food in a smoothie! You can blend it smoother than shown if you want to have it very smooth without bits of berries but once in awhile I like to have chunks of fruit in my drink.
