A smoothie you eat with a spoon? Yes, please!

Our Blueberry Smoothie Bowl — which you enjoy with a spoon, not a straw! — is loaded with delicious, good-for-you ingredients, starting with blueberries, bananas and spinach. Almond butter, flaxseed and hemp seed hearts, with their protein and good-for-you fats, give this smoothie “staying power,” so you won’t be hungry a half-hour after eating it.
