I love smoothies! They are fast, easy, and pretty tasty too. They are also a really great way to hide or include somethings into your diet that you may not want to eat solo. If you are not eating enough fruits and veggies, you may not be getting enough fiber. Fiber is a pretty boring topic, and it often is associated with your grandparents or eating prunes. However, your grandparents were on to something with their Metamucil taking ways because studies show a correlation between high-fiber diets and living longer. This recipe contains a whopping 13.5 grams of fiber (that's almost half of what you are supposed to get in a day). It also can easily be modified for those on animal-free diets.Blueberry Fiber Smoothie
- 1/2 cup of frozen blueberries
- 1/2 of a frozen banana
- 1/2 cup of milk (can substitute non-dairy milk)
- 1/4 cup of pomegranate juice
- 2 TBSP of ground flaxseed
- 2 tsp of psyllium husk
- 2 TBSP of protein powder (I use soy, but you can use whey)
- 3/4 cup of water
Blend ingredients in your blender until smooth.
