The blueberries in this refreshing smoothie are high in antioxidants.

Vanilla provides a hint of sweetness. This is balanced by the tartness of the lemon juice which also provides a little vitamin C.

This recipe uses almond milk (which provides heaps of calcium, choline, vitamins D and E along with a range of minerals), however, you can use any milk you prefer.
