I love the flavors of fresh blueberries, lemon and thyme together. This morning, I had my mind set to make a lemon, blueberry, and thyme coffee cake with streusel topping. But--I have been making a really great effort in avoiding gluten and refined sugars; so, I resisted the urge to bake. Since I couldn't shake the urge for lemons and blueberries--I opted for a healthier breakfast and whipped up a quick breakfast smoothie instead! What is my recipe for a Lemon, Blueberry & Thyme smoothie
Ingredients for a Lemon, Blueberry & Thyme Smoothie
1/2 Medium Sized Banana, cut into chunks
1/2 c. Blueberries, frozen
1 Tbsp. Fresh Lemon Juice
1/8 tsp. Fresh Thyme Leaves
1/2 c. FAGE Greek Yogurt or 1 Scoop of Vanilla Protein Powder
1 tsp. Stevia In The Raw or Honey
1 c. Silk Vanilla Almond Milk
Instructions for a Lemon, Blueberry & Thyme Smoothie
Place all of the ingredients into a blender or smoothie maker and blend until smooth.
Serve while still cold.
These smoothies make great afternoon snacks too. The natural sugars and protein really help me fight away those afternoon snack cravings--and keep me full until dinner!
I sometimes use dried thyme in these smoothies--but, literally, use just a dash as dried thyme is a little stronger tasting than fresh thyme in these drinks.
