This healthy blueberry smoothie recipe (breakfast in a glass) is a quick and easy, nutrition and flavor-packed smoothie to start your day off with.
Top it off with fresh berries, a few nuts, and a sprinkle of chia seeds for an extra delicious breakfast treat.
Breakfast is one of those meals where I like to make some quick and simple breakfast recipe with little to no cleanup. Yet, I’m one of those people, and mayb
