Blueberry Banana Oat Smoothie

Blueberries are at the top of the list of antioxidant-rich foods. They’re also high in fibre and vitamin C as well as loads of other amazing nutrients so I always have organic frozen berries on hand for quick and easy smoothies. You can use fresh or frozen depending on what’s in season and what’s convenient for you. Adding oats and flax adds even more fibre and helps make it thicker and creamier. In fact, the more oats and flax you add, the thicker the smoothie will get over time which also lends itself to a nice smoothie bowl. Of course, get your greens in! This version included chard, but you can use any green you like!
