BLUEBERRY power breakfast shake
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.
