Blueberry Breakfast Smoothie

Try this blueberry and flaxseed smoothie the next time you’re looking for a quick breakfast or just a healthy snack. I like to use frozen berries for a thick, cool drink. This eliminates the need for ice, which can weaken the flavor. Raspberries can be swapped out for blueberries, or you can try using a combination of the two. Either way, they’re both high in antioxidants. A banana and a little honey add just the right amount of sweetness. Walnuts, rolled oats, and flaxseed provide extra nutrition, making this a delicious and satisfying choice for breakfast.

Tips

  • To get the most health benefits out of the flaxseed, it needs to be ground. You can purchase it this way or do it yourself with a spice or coffee grinder. Because this process releases the oil in the flaxseed, you’ll want to store it in the refrigerator or freezer.
  • Finely grind the oats and nuts in a blender. They won’t break down completely, but they do add body and texture to the smoothie. Then add the rest of the ingredients.
