Those of you who have been following me for a while would be familiar with my penchant for "pie in a glass" smoothies. I love them. Liquid pie! What's there not to love? If you've tried my apple pie smoothie, pecan pie smoothie, sweet potato pie smoothie, banana coconut cream pie smoothie, or lemon cheesecake smoothie, you'll understand the obsession.
Now, while these rich decadent smoothies are not the most low-calorie, healthiest smoothies on my site, sometimes it just has to be all about the fun. That's what this blueberry pie smoothie is all about.
Well, the blend does contain antioxidants. Blueberries are loaded with anti-aging goodies. Yeah, tell yourself that as you blend up another and another and another batch of this dessert in a glass.

*Probiotic Powder - I add 1/2 teaspoon of probiotic powder to all smoothies to replenish stores of healthy bacteria for immunity, digestion, detox, and to balance the acidic effects of high-sugar fruits and other sweeteners. The really potent probiotics require refrigeration. If you have capsules, break the shell and release the powder. Unsweetened probiotic-rich liquids like kefirs (water, coconut water, milk varieties) or kombucha make wonderful health-promoting additions to shakes, too.
*Celtic Sea Salt - I add a pinch (or more) of this alkalizing, mineral-rich salt to all smoothies to boost the natural flavor of fruits and veggies; temper the acidity of sweet fruits and sweeteners; stimulate the lymphatic system; replenish electrolytes; aid digestion; and help the body access energy. I do not recommend adding common table salt which is generally heated to extreme temperatures, iodized, bleached, processed, and refined. This salt does not have the same benefits. If you have a health condition that requires you to limit your sodium intake consult your doctor before adding salt to your smoothies.
