Blueberry love & an awesome protein shake

G w blueberry bucket

My family and I recently went blueberry picking at Swift Creek Berry Farm here in good ole Virginia.  It was a great outing and our little girl, Grace, had a blast….actually we all did!

She lasted quite a while and I think we picked almost 15 pounds of blueberries!  This is pretty awesome as I love blueberries!  We ate a ton of the fresh ones, gave some away and froze quite a bit.  While the fresh ones are, of course, delicious I have no problem freezing them as I make a lot of shakes from frozen fruit.  Here blueberry picking takes place in July and August, hopefully we’ll make one more run at it.  I highly recommend it if this is something you’ve considered in the past.  It’s fun for kids of all ages…and meditative too!

So this morning I made us some pretty awesome protein shakes.   Measurements will vary depending on how many you make, but I usually make a whole blender full, one to drink for breakfast, then some for the whole family to drink throughout the day.

Today, I used:

almost 2 full, indulgent, cups of frozen blueberries

4 frozen bananas

2 large tablespoons of chia seeds

2 scoops of Sun Warrior Chocolate Protein Powder

1 tablespoon of raw almond butter (I used peanut butter today and that was quite tasty)

2 large handfuls of spinach (I was out of kale and spinach fit the bill)

Fill rest of blender with almond milk and/or non gmo soy milk.  (I used both)

Blend.  Drink some.  Save some.  Enjoy often.  And if blueberry picking appeals to you, it’s time to go!
