One unassuming little fruit that packs a big nutritional punch is the blueberry. It’s bursting with nutrients and anti-aging benefits. Rich in fiber, minerals, and the vitamins A, C, E & K, fresh blueberries are lower on the glycemic index than many fruits, and also offer a good dose of fiber — both of which are helpful in managing blood sugar.

  • 1 cup of coconut water
  • 2 tablespoons chia seeds
  • 1 big handful of kale or spinach
  • 1 teaspoon of coconut oil
  • ¼ cup of blueberries
  • 1/3 of a banana
  • ice as desired



1. Put everything except the fruit into the blender — blend to combine.
2. Add in the banana and blueberries, blend.
3. Add ice as desired to thicken, blend. Pour and enjoy!
