Wild Blueberry Brain Boosting Smoothie

A purple powerhouse of a smoothie packed with antioxidants thanks to all those wild blueberries. For extra creaminess, soak the cashews in the milk overnight in the fridge and peel and freeze the banana overnight. Feel free to add other nourishing "extras", such as hemp seeds, psyllium husks, or chia seeds.
