BLUEBERRY HILLS SMOOTHIE- Vegan & Gluten-Free

I don’t think that I’ve posted a recipe for a good two years now…and then I made THE BEST smoothie I have literally ever had and I just had to share it! I know, I know “THE BEST” is quite the statement, but honestly I took a sip of this smoothie and gasped in shock over its deliciousness. I haven’t fed it to the hubby yet, but not because he won’t like it…because I love it too much to share and I only have 1/2 a banana left (aka. only 1 smoothies worth). The picture doesn’t do it justice, obviously. But what’s a girl to do when you discover absolute deliciousness 5 minutes before you’ve got to run off to work?

    • Give it a go and let me know how it turns out! The good thing about just using 2 tbsp is that it blends in very well, even if you don’t have a super intense blender 🙂
