I stumbled upon this article: Blueberries: A Runner’s Best Friend and thought you guys would be interested to learn a little bit more about the health benefits of blueberries as well. It’s really interesting to learn how blueberries can help with inflammation and even lactic acid buildup as well as many other things. Then obviously, bananas are great for you after a run since they are loaded with potassium which aids in recovery. This recipe comes from the eMeals breakfast plan and is chock full of healthy ingredients including blueberries, bananas, low fat milk, flaxseed meal (optional) and cinnamon.

I loved the rich cinnamon taste in this smoothie, and even though blueberries are NOT my favorite fruit, I thought this blended together beautifully! Plus, I love that bright color in your glass as well as the fact that it’s CLEAN EATING! What are you waiting for? Go get your run on and look forward to a tall glass of a bright and cheery chilled smoothie waiting for you!

    This looks so good! I just got a bunch of fresh berries from my local farmer’s market. I’ll have to try this.

    I love smoothies, I think they’re a great way to get in as much needed vitamins and minerals in one sitting as you can and they’re great for breakfast.

    I think this would be a good smoothie for me to try. I’d probably use Greek yogurt instead of milk with a touch of honey. 🙂 Great suggestion.
