Coconut Blueberry Smoothie

2 cups blueberries (frozen is best for an ice cream texture, fresh is OK for a more liquid smoothie)
2 scoops (about oz) whey protein

2-8 Tb water

In blender, process blueberries and 2-4 Tb water until smooth but not liquid.  Add 2 cups whey protein or your protein mix of choice.  If not already liquid, put a jar of coconut oil into warm water, until liquid.  Add 2Tb coconut oil to mixture.  Add more water if needed to get the right consistency.  Result should be smooth and firm so that you can eat it with a spoon!  It is like ice cream and requires no sugar or additional flavoring... If you want a looser, drinkable smoothie, add water or juice until desired consistency is achieved.

Blueberries are full of antioxidants particularly anthrocyanadins, which are great for scavenging free radicals in the eyes and brain, helping better sight and thinking.
