Today is National Blueberry Muffin day, but it’s summer people! I’d much rather enjoy my blueberries in a cool and creamy form, like this richly delicious vegan blueberry smoothie.
This vegan blueberry smoothie recipe was shared with us by So Delicious Dairy Free, and has Smoky Joe’s special nutritious touches:
Blackstrap Molasses – Deep and rich, just 2 teaspoons of this earthy sweetener possesses nearly 12% of your daily calcium requirement and 13% for iron.
Cacao Nibs (or powder) – Pretty much the purest form of chocolate, so you’re practically guaranteed low sugar depth and some antioxidants. Cacao nibs are a treat that can be a little pricey. Feel free to sub cacao or unsweetened cocoa powder in a pinch (such as Trader Joe’s for cost effectiveness).
