Remember: Smoothies are not beverages, they're meal replacements, so keep their nutrition facts in mind when considering your overall diet plan. By starting with frozen blueberries, you'll get a thicker smoothie. If you're using fresh blueberries, place them on a baking sheet and freeze for 30 minutes before blending.
