Blueberry Protein Shake Recipe

Did you know that blueberries are one of the healthiest foods on earth?

As well as being low in calories yet packed with nutrition, blueberries tout an impressive list of health benefits, including:

- Protection from diseases such as cancer thanks to their insane antioxidant profile.
- The ability to lend a helping hand towards weight loss and keep the digestive system happy, due to their soluble fibre content.
- Skin-boosting and anti-aging qualities, as the anthocyanin present can prevent oxidative DNA damage.

Yep, we love those tiny blue berries of goodness! It makes total sense to make blueberries a key part of your diet - and that's why we thought it was high-time to share our favourite blueberry protein shake recipe!

This easy-to-make superfood shake contains just 4 ingredients and takes seconds to blitz together. It's made with the 100% vegan Nutribuddy High-Protein Sculpting Shake, but feel free to substitute this for another source of protein, such as nuts or seeds. Whether or not you're a gym-goer, adding protein to your shakes and smoothies will keep you feeling fuller for longer and boost your metabolism.

With that said, let's jump right into this health-boosting, skin-loving, nutritious blueberry super shake recipe:

This yummy blueberry super shake is bursting with tangy flavour, has plenty of protein to fill you up and comes with a great nutritional profile to boot.

It is worth noting that fruit-based smoothies like this do come with a lot of natural sugars, so we'd recommend filling up on veggies rather than fruit for the rest of the day!
