My go-to when I have blueberries about to go bad. I have a HUGE tendency to over buy when they are on sale!

1cup of unsweetened vanilla almond milk or coconut milk

1 scoop of PlantFusion Vanilla Protein Powder (my stomach has issues with whey, so you’ll notice this is the brand I typically use)

1 frozen banana

1cup of fresh blueberries (could use frozen)

1/2cup of fat free Vanilla Greek Yogurt

1tbsp Chia Seeds

1/2tsp vanilla extract

1/4-1/2tsp cinnamon (optional but I love it in everything, and lots of it!)

1 packet of stevia

Optional: 1/4tsp xanthan gum (makes it really thick & creamy)

Throw everything together in a blender & blend. Pour in a cup & enjoy. Nothing fancy, just quick & simple like most of my recipes! The xanthan gum makes it so nice & thick that sometimes I pour it in a bowl and eat it with a spoon! YUM
