Blueberry Smoothie

12 Jan

Since I have been posting about Blueberries. I thought I should get some information on its nutrient content. As a homemaker, I love to read about the nutritional value of the food which I feed my family.

Blueberries offer 80 calories per cup and virtually no fat. Here is a list of nutritional benefits:.

  1. They are dynamos of Dietary fibre: Since the body requires a lot of fibre. It is a good source to keep your cholesterol in check.
  2. They are an Anti-oxidants: They serve as the best antioxidant source as compared to other food.
  3. Also, excellent source of Manganese: Manganese is very essential for the bone development and also,  it converts fats, proteins and carbohydrates into energy.
  4. They are rich in Vitamin C: One serving provides 14 mg of vitamin C which is 25 % of your daily requirement.

So when you combine the blueberries with milk, it surely increases the nutrients value.

I hope you found this useful. I hope as much I love finding about the nutrient value for a food, you enjoyed reading it too.

So here is what is used for a Blueberry Smoothie:

1/2 cup nonfat or  low-fat milk

1/2 cup non fat plain yogurt

1 cup frozen blueberries (unsweetened)

1 teaspoon honey

Method:

Blend all the ingredients in a mixer and your Blueberry smoothie is ready!!
