Having breakfast on the go – or having none at all – has unfortunately become a way of life for most of us. This smooth and fruity beverage is a great way to start your day, whether you’re sitting at your table on in your car!

The food markets have been loaded this winter with gorgeous blueberries. Even in mid-February they are absolutely delectable! When buying fresh blueberries look for fruit with a deep color, no shriveling – something that happens with aging fruit. Then flip the carton over and check for any signs of mold or spoilage. But if you live in an area and all you have available are frozen berries, you can most certainly use them.

The ingredients for this cold beverage are quite basic, many items you might already have on hand. Milk and blueberry yogurt provide the foundation for this drink. The extra cold creaminess comes not from frozen yogurt or ice cream but a frozen ripe banana. Cinnamon and honey create a background that accentuates the blueberries in a delightful way.

Toss everything into your blender and in less than a minute or two you’ve made breakfast.

No need to skip your morning meal – grab a straw and go!
