Protein Powerhouse

Banana Blueberry Smoothies

I am a smoothie fanatic and am always looking for new ideas! While the combination of bananas and blueberries isn't wildly out there, I have never tried it and it seems like an absolutely perfect mix! If you are making this particular smoothie with the purpose of getting protein, try adding peanut butter. I am obsessed with putting peanut butter in my smoothies. I prefer crunchy peanut butter for some added texture, but smooth would work just as well!

Sure, exercise can seem daunting and incredibly time consuming. When you think about it though, rather than watching an hour long TV show, you might as well be doing an hour long workout and reaping all the wonderful benefits! The TV show, while I'm sure it is fantastic, is less important than your reality.

Summer's coming, be prepared!
