Birthday Blueberries

Today is my birthday. I turn 29. And since Luise and Elsa still are in Denmark I didn’t really feel like baking myself a cake. Instead I bought a big big box of fresh Swedish blueberries and made myself a blueberry coconut super smoothie. It’s quick, easy, delicious and also super nutritious (seriously, look at the ingredient list). That’s a pretty good way to start your birthday, right?

Blueberry Coconut Super Smoothie
2 glasses

1 cup fresh blueberries
1/2 cup coconut water
1 frozen banana
a big chunk fresh ginger, minced
juice from 1 lime
2 tbsp coconut flakes
a handful of walnuts

Throw all the ingredients in the blender. Blend it for half a minute. Taste it and add more ginger if needed. I used almost 2 inches, but I like it quite strong.

    I love your website and your recipes. Great job. This smoothie was amazing. It tasted delicious and fresh. Thank you for the recipe.

    Hi! I really like your blog. I went to your recipe archive and I have to say you have quite the volume of healthy-looking recipes. Your desserts are really appealing to me and I've already picked out a few that I'd like to try in the small cafe I work in at school. The blackberry/blue muffins for instance, the spinach muffins (wow!), the chili-choco sweets and lots more. I really like the style of what you've chosen- the specific recipes you've got really look great and definitely interest the health nut side of me. Your pictures are beautiful as well!

  • Ooops I was on vacay so missed your birthday:( Happy belated! Hope you still enjoyed your special day even if you were on your own and your delicious looking smoothie! Wouldn't it be great if you started a new trend--healthy birthday smoothies instead of sugary birthday cakes?? Imagine the possibilities!
    • Hi Julie, I can easily imagine the birthday smoothie trend! You could make them in lots of different colors and decorate them in a thousand different festive ways. Although it is kind of difficult putting birthday candles on a smoothie ... /David
