blueberry protein smoothie

For as long as I have known her, my mother-in-law has loved her blueberry smoothies in the morning. She religiously swims three times a week (I know, impressive right!) and it is her go-to breakfast where she can put a scoop of protein in her magic bullet (feel full and yet not heavy!) and head…
