Pretty In Pink Pick Me Up Smoothie – Blueberries are one of the healthiest berries you can eat. Not only do these low sugar berries have more antioxidants per serving than almost any other fruit, studies have found that they may help block the growth of tumor cells. Combining them with bananas and oats makes a powerhouse smoothie that will keep you full and full of energy for hours, and patty pan squash (a small, saucer-shaped summer squash) provides ample amounts of vitamin C, folate and B-6. Easily digestible and naturally fat free, pea protein is a great addition to any smoothie because it’s usually quite easy to digest, even for people with sensitive stomachs.
