Blueberry Blast Smoothie

This was actually a "forgotten" post. I made it several weeks ago - when blueberries were in season. Why it never made the "blogging stage" still eludes me, but I am publishing it right now.

After making this drink, I refrigerated it for about 10 minutes, hoping to have it during the hottest time of the day. However, after just a few minutes, I noticed that the color changed - from purple to almost brownish. I don't know if the yogurt caused the color change. It was still very, very good, though. The flavor was not affected in any way. ;-)

What you need: 

1 cup blueberries
1/2 cup milk
1/4 cup plain yogurt
1 1/2 tablespoon honey

What to do: 

Wash blueberries thoroughly and dry.

Combine all ingredients in a blender and blend, pulsing, until all ingredients are mixed well.

Pour into a big mug and enjoy!

Tips, Tricks and Tweaks: 

1. Try adding other fruits! Blackberries and raspberries come to mind.
2. Don't have plain yogurt? Skip it!
3. Add some crushed ice - but don't forget to add more milk or sugar so the taste doesn't get "watered down".

have you ever tried making a smoothie using the canned variety or do you think that defeats the purpose of a "healthy drink"? kasi dito sa amin bihira lang yung fresh blueberries. haha nice blog! cheers! - gio
