Delivery items: blueberries, almond milk, fresh mint, limes, yogurt

I recently got back from an awesome cruise in Alaska. In addition to seeing beautiful scenery (and wildlife!), we also got to try lots of new foods, one of which leads me to this little beauty below. We had a blueberry mojito sorbet for dessert one night, and it was so delicious! Light and sweet, refreshing and cool from the mint…a real treat! I decided that I could recreate this with a healthy spin, and my blueberry mojito smoothie was born! It is tasty, filling, refreshing, and packed with antioxidants. Blueberries are a great low-calorie snack and with the added protein from the yogurt, it would be a great post-workout refreshment.

Blueberry Mojito Smoothie

1 c frozen blueberries

3/4 c. almond milk

12 fresh mint leaves

1 Tbsp coconut sugar

½ medium-sized fresh lime, juiced

½ c. Greek or non-dairy yogurt

Instructions

Place all ingredients in a blender and whirl away!

NOTE: I used frozen blueberries, but I actually had bought them fresh. I tossed them in the freezer before vacation and came back to an even more refreshing blueberry treat. You can easily use fresh blueberries here; just add a few ice cubes to the blender before mixing everything up.
