Blueberry Pineapple Smoothie

It took all the willpower we had, but the Mister and I some how held off on devouring the blueberries in this week's share long enough for me to make something with them.  When the Nalls' daughter, Valerie, told me that these New Jersey blueberries would going to be about the best I would ever taste, she was NOT exaggerating.  And...a little factoid for your Sunday evening...when blueberries look like they've been frosted with that slight white hue, that's when they are at their prime.  So basically, we are all ruined for blueberries from any other place for the rest of our lives.  New Jersey...keep cranking those beauties out!

So while okay, the entire pint of blueberries didn't survive till today (quality control my friends, had to make sure they were indeed as amazing as I'd been promised), I still had just enough of them left to cool us down on this hot, humid Sunday with these quick and easy Blueberry Pineapple Smoothies.  Did I mention they're 100 % vegan, as well?!  We've got the pineapples and bananas you'll need to round out this recipe in our store, plus tomorrow is another Fresh Start Monday so all day long you'll receive 10% off of all produce (runs every Monday through the end of August)!

Blueberry Pineapple Smoothie

1 pint fresh blueberries
1/2 pineapple, skinned and cut into chunks
2 1/2 bananas
1/2 cup vanilla soy milk (or milk of your choosing)
15 ice cubes

Throw all ingredients into your blender or Vitamix and blend away until nice and smooth.  You can also toss in some spinach or kale for an added iron boost.  Will make about four 8oz servings.
