Weightloss success story and marathon runner, Valerie Bertinelli shares her favorite Blueberry Smoothie recipe from her latest book, One Dish At A Time ($30, amazon.com).
Bertinelli recommends using frozen rather than fresh blueberries for texture. She says, “My trainer insists I use a whey protein.”
1/2 cup blueberries
1 cup nonfat vanilla yogurt
1 Tbsp. ground flaxseed
1 Tbsp. protein powder
Combine the blueberries, yogurt, flaxseed and protein powder in a blender. Add a few ice cubes if using fresh blueberries and puree until smooth. Pour into a tall glass and enjoy.
