For such a small fruit, blueberries pack a powerful health punch. According to the recent research, they beat 40 other fruit and vegetables in helping to prevent certain diseases! They provide a high concentration of antioxidants which means they may help to prevent cancer and heart disease. What’s more they may help to fight infections, boost memory and be anti-ageing.
I love this nutritious drink, full of vitamins, calcium and probiotics. It only takes a matter of minutes to prepare. In my house I promote this as a blueberry milkshake and my boys love it as a breakfast treat.

1 tsp vanilla extract
500g ml (17 fl oz) thick natural bio yoghurt (Glenisk) or yoghurt of your choice
