Super-healthy Lingonberry Smoothie

Hello dear smoothie lovers! 🙋🏻

In case you didn’t know, I am totally addicted to lingonberries. I am so happy to live in Finland, where lingonberry is almost something of a staple 😍 You might not believe me, but I have a whole shelf in my freezer filled with lingonberries only! As a consequence, lingonberry is one of the most frequent ingredients in my smoothies 😃

Today I’d like to share with you my recipe for a simple, yet beautiful, lingonberry smoothie. Naturally, the smoothie is also delicious and extremely healthy. Lingonberries are rightfully called superberries since they are packed with cold-fighting vitamins as well as powerful antioxidants that will keep you strong and healthy 😀💪 This is why I often use this berry in  my smoothies during the cold autumn and winter months 🍂🍁❄️

If you love lingonberries like I do, you’ll probably want to check out my lingonberry plum smoothie recipe.

Why my Lingonberry Smoothie is good for you:

  • Only 1 or 2 tablespoons of frozen lingonberries a day can help with diabetes, blood pressure challenges, and inflammatory condition. Lingonberries, as no other berry, are packed with antioxidant power in the form of polyphenols.
  • Bananas are a great dietary source of potassium, an essential mineral for maintaining normal blood pressure and heart function. They are also loaded with calcium, manganese, magnesium, iron, folate, niacin, riboflavin, and B6. These all contribute to the proper functioning of the body and keeping you healthy.
  • Yogurt contains a good amount of protein, as well as several other nutrients like calcium, vitamin B2, vitamin B12, potassium, and magnesium.
