Paleo AIP Blueberry Delight Smoothie
By and large my favorite fruit is the Blueberry because they remind me of spring. Incidentally, the blueberry is one of the only fruits native to North America. They were first sold as commercial produce in 1916 after a New Jersey farmer crossbred various wild blueberry varieties to create the first farm grown blueberry bush. Today we can buy them dehydrated, freeze dried, frozen and fresh.
Blueberries are a Superfood
Another reason to like Blueberries is they are a very versatile fruit and considered a superfood and include Vitamins K, C, Lutein, Zeaxanthin and Manganese. In addition to the vitamins and nutrients, they combat aging, can boost brain function, support digestion, fight cancer, and aid in weight loss. They are even good for the skin and heart. For these reasons I like to buy them fresh on sale and freeze them so I always have blueberries waiting for me in the freezer.
