A Blueberry-Banana Smoothie with Green Tea

A banana will keep you full for quite some time, plus it's a healthy choice. It is full of manganese, copper, vitamin C and B, and of course it is a great source of fiber and potassium. We are all aware that green tea is possibly the healthiest beverage on the planet, providing you with antioxidants and nutrients that will help you to lose weight and improve your memory. Combined with blueberries, this is probably the best alternative for breakfast.

Here is what you will need for this smoothie:

½ of a medium sized banana,
1½ of frozen blueberries,
2 tablespoons of honey,
1 cup of light soy milk, preferably vanilla flavored,
1 green tea bag, obviously,
And just a little bit of water.

Instructions are easy, as you can see for yourself. Put the kettle on, or microwave the water so you could prepare the tea first, add honey once it cools off, and combine everything in a blender. Enjoy.

A Blueberry Smoothie with Red Cabbage

Don’t go away! Red cabbage is actually not just a terrific choice because of its vitamins, and it is full with vitamins A, C and K, plus loaded with iron and manganese, but it also tastes nothing like your regular cabbage. It is delicious! And if you are not convinced, please be advised that red cabbage is a great cancer fighter, eat it for preventive reasons, and if you have any problems with digestion this will help as well. Give this smoothie a try:

1 cup of frozen blueberries,
2 cups of chopped red cabbage,
2 full sized bananas,
3 cups of water.

The instructions are simple, just blend everything together, and you should know by now that you can mix things up. Feel free to add something special, use different kind of blueberries, (look for the chart down below) just remember to keep your choices healthy. Eating a handful of blueberries with 300 grams of milk chocolate won’t do you any good. Combine it with 50 grams of dark chocolate and you will feel like you are in heaven, energized and ready for a hard day’s work.
