Blueberry Smoothie Recipe

This blueberry smoothie recipe with fresh cantaloupe melon and pear is yet another easy to make smoothie recipe.

As you might have guessed by now I'm a bit of a fruit smoothie purist! But sometimes the simplest recipes really do turn out best and when I'm using a dark berry like blueberries or blackberries I prefer to keep them as the dominant flavor.

These dark blue berries just cry out for a white or neutral fruit to go with them and what could taste better than pear or melon.

Blueberries are usually very sweet and when combined with the additional sweetness of a juicy pear you get the benefit of not only a great tasting blueberry smoothie but one that zings with vitality.

Long known as nature's "super fruit", a blueberry smoothie is rich in vitamins and antioxidants. Despite their great flavor, there are few calories in blueberries compared to many fruits.
