Blueberries are one of the most popular smoothie ingredients. No wonder, for such a small berry they are packed with taste as well as antioxidants and other nutrients. And as a side benefit, when you whip up this blueberry smoothie recipe it has a wonderful blue color!
Its also easy to turn this blueberry smoothie treat into even more of a nutrition powerhouse just by adding a tablespoon of Chia seed. Chia is a natural seed that adds a large measure of nutrition including heart healthy, cholesterol fighting omega 3 fatty acids and antioxidants. Even better, unlike Flax, Chia doesn’t have a taste of its own so adding it here won’t change the delicious results.
