The Flat Belly Smoothie

[ Blueberries have fiber, Vitamin C & E ]

I wore my Halloween costume [ which was belly-bearing- I was an Indian chief  ] out Friday night to attend a concert. I knew I would be drinking & wanted to reduce the chances of bloat. This smoothie was created primarily for that reason. Spinach aids in reducing puffiness, orange juice has potassium which flushes out the system & blueberries are full of antioxidants. The flat belly smoothie hardly took any time at all & luckily the blueberries & Greek 0% yogurt camouflage the spinach taste [ I promise! ].

    Hi Lauryn,

    Thanks for sharing, sounds delicious!
    I’m just wondering about the whole antioxidants thing. Although obviously blueberries are quite healthy, I’m reading a lot (for example check Wikipedia) that suggest that there’s nothing special about antioxidants, and they might even be damaging when take at too high dosage!

    Cheers from Amsterdam, the Netherlands.

    Hi Lauryn,

    Just found your blog. It’s great!

    Must try this smoothie in the morning. Never made one combining spinach and blueberries before but it sounds very interesting! I think I’ve got just enough frozen blueberries and just enough fresh spinach. Right out of yoghurt though, but can’t wait to see what it tastes like so I’m going to try using soy milk. Fingers crossed.

    Hi, it’s enough to drive you batty isn’t it? One year studies show that ‘something’ is good for you, the next year it’s not. I keep up to date with all the latest nutrition research too, but in the end, just like you, I know that blueberries and other antioxidant rich foods are healthy for us. Its said so often, but I’ll say it again, everything in moderation…. :)
