We enjoyed a very soft winter this year and even had a little sneak peek of what spring feels like. Slowly I’m starting to think about ice creams and more smoothies. Or should I say milkshakes? There’s absolutely no need to go for an unhealthy treat. This blueberry milkshake can be a great way to boost your daily intake of vitamins and minerals while enjoying the taste of an old fashioned milkshake.
How to make a super healthy dairy free milkshake?
Blueberries are the way to go. Blueberries are one of the healthiest fruits. They are packed with antioxidants and vitamins.
Blueberries are not only anti-inflammatory, they will also lower cholesterol and have anti-aging properties.
Antioxidants basically protect against the damaging effects of free radicals. Antioxidants can be found in vitamin C & E, beta carotene and zinc. An absolute must against aging! Blueberries also promote collagen production in the skin. And collagen keeps skin naturally elastic and young.Blueberries furthermore protect us against various diseases such as cancer. As a bonus these berries also are not unpleasant to eat. In fact they’re delicious!
Make sure you have a nice base to start with. Often a nut milk wilk make a great milkshake. What I like most is almond milk or cashew milk. For this milkshake I used almond milk which you can make very easily yourself . If you prefer to buy almond milk in your local organic shop mnake sure the milk is unsweetened and organic.
- 300 ml of almond milk
- 130 grams of (frozen) blueberries
- three medjool dates
- half a teaspoon of cinnamon
- a few drops of vanilla extract (optional)
- Blend everything in a blender until you have created a light and smooth texture. If you wish you can add a few ice cubes.
