Blueberry Blast Smoothie

Smoothies have many benefits beyond good taste; they can help you eat more fruits and vegetables, the foundation of a cancer-protective diet. Frozen blueberries are the secret to the milkshake-like consistency of this smoothie. Rich in fiber, anthocyanins and ellagic acid, these little fruits are being studied for their ability to inhibit the formation of carcinogens.



2 cups frozen unsweetened blueberries (do not thaw)

1/2 cup 100% orange juice (calcium-fortified preferred)

3/4 cup reduced fat vanilla Greek yogurt

1/2 medium frozen banana

1/2 tsp. pure vanilla extract
