Blueberry Smoothie Recipe

Not long ago I posted a recipe for a Strawberry Shortcake Smoothie, and I recently tried it with blueberries... Yum! You would think because of the color that the blueberry taste would be overwhelming, but it's really not. It's quite subtle and it tastes very similar to the strawberry smoothie (because all the ingredients are the same except for the fruit). Here is the recipe:
2 cups of organic frozen blueberries (you can use fresh but then you need to include some ice cubes)
1 cup organic raw cashews
1/4 cup organic gluten free oats
2 cups of almond milk
1/4 teaspoon organic cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon organic vanilla extract
2 tablespoons organic maple syrup
You can tweak these amounts to suit your taste. Put all these ingredients in a blender (I use and recommend a Vitamix) and blend away!
Keep in mind that this smoothie, although healthy, contains just over 1000 calories, so you might want to split it with someone.
Oh, and make sure to brush your teeth after this one! :)
