I had a fantastic birthday yesterday (32 already? Geez, time flies!) and this Wild Blueberry Shake with antioxidant-rich wild blueberries, sweet banana, frosty watermelon cubes (my secret ingredient) and creamy vanilla almond milk was my birthday shake "smoothie break." Get the recipe and a few pics from my celebration day!..
Wild blueberries are rich in anti-aging, free-radical fighting antioxidants so they make a perfect addition to any wellness smoothie!
And perfect for an 'anti-aging' birthday shake :)
..happy smoothie day to me.
Oh, and THIS cake happened too..
..No I didn't make my own bday cake. My husband is REALLY good at ordering those :) Coconut Vanilla from Real Food Daily.
