Healthy Blueberry Smoothie

The past few days have been really... busy. From dealing with college things, to planning our Christmas party, to figuring out what to do for our White Elephant party... All while we're packing for our move at the end of the month. Annnnd that's where this yummy blueberry smoothie comes in. Smoothies are my go-to breakfast for busy days like the last few have been. They're delicious, healthy, quick and easy. In other words, perfect for those days when you're so busy, you almost forget to eat breakfast.

There are a lot of good vitamins and nutrients in this smoothie, so it's a good start for your morning!
Bananas are a great source of vitamin B-6, vitamin C, potassium and give you a good energy boost in the morning.
Flax seeds are packed with omega-3s, antioxidants, and fiber.
Oats are good for fiber, manganese, and may help lower the level of cholesterol.
Blueberries have antioxidants, phytonutrients, and are just plain delicious!
Almond milk has Vitamin E, calcium, and is a great alternative for dairy milk!
You could even throw in a handful of spinach, or a scoop of protein powder.
