BLUE­BERRY power break­fast shake

New Zealand Fitness - - FIT FOOD -

Makes two, one-cup serves.

1 cup milk of your choice 1 large ba­nana 1 cup frozen blue­ber­ries 1 ta­ble­spoon flax meal (ground lin­seeds) 1 ta­ble­spoon chia seeds ½ avo­cado ½ cup cooked quinoa

Gar­nish: blue­ber­ries, chia seeds and mint leaves. Put all in­gre­di­ents into a blender and blend. Pour into glasses and gar­nish. Al­ways put the softer in­gre­di­ents in the bot­tom of the blender when mak­ing smooth­ies. That way the blender is up to speed when the harder in­gre­di­ents start hit­ting the blade and they are in­tro­duced slowly. If you want a striped look add a cou­ple of ta­ble­spoons of milk to the blender at the end and blend for around one sec­ond. When you pour into a glass you will have streaks of un­mixed milk. In­stead of quinoa you could use brown rice, oats or any other whole grain you have left­over in the fridge.
