Blueberry Pie Smoothie



If you talk to my friends or family they will readily agree that I am not a morning person. Nor am I hungry when I first wake up. But since breakfast really is the most important meal of the day it’s important that I still have something.

Smoothies really work for me in the morning. Not only can I prepare it the night before which is a must since - you know - I’m not a morning person, I can make it both tasty and filling.

The ground flax and oats in this blueberry pie smoothie ensures that I’m not ‘hangry’ before lunch. Trust me, this is a good thing.

The dietitian in me is always mindful to add fibre sources to any smoothie. I’m a strong believer in eating the right foods for optimal gut health. That being said, the foodie in me still wants a hint of sweetness. This blueberry pie smoothie is the best of both worlds.
