Blueberry Banana Smoothie Recipe

Blueberry Smoothy

The blueberry banana smoothie is one of my favorite post-run drinks. It contains only 177 calories per serving and can be ready in under 5 minutes. It’s high in vitamins B and C, dietary fiber, and manganese. It contains a good amount of carbohydrates, sugar, and protein, all of which can help you recover after a long run.

The secret of the recipe is to add a raw egg into the smoothie. It gives the drink a silky texture, as well as a bit of protein. Although consuming raw egg involves a risk of Salmonella infection, the risk is as low as 0.003%. To lower the risk of infection, select free-range or organic eggs, store the eggs in the fridge, consume them while they are fresh, and thoroughly wash the outside of each egg before using.

This recipe is also a great way to get use up over-ripe bananas. For other ways to store or consume over-ripe bananas, check out my low-sugar banana bread recipe and the three-ingredient avocado smoothie.
