Raspberry Blueberry Smoothie with Greek Yogurt

Home » Breakfast » Raspberry Blueberry Smoothie with Greek Yogurt

Eating healthy or eating enough at a meal can sometimes be hard when your busy. Being a busy mom of a 4 month year old I tend to grab whatever I can to quickly chew and swallow. I do eat very healthy but sometimes I don’t get enough to eat.

My typical breakfast looks like a cup of oatmeal with walnuts and flax seed or two pieces of whole grain bread with natural peanut butter. This is a healthy meal but missing the fruit or vegetables to make it complete. Also it’s rare that I have time to chew or enjoy my meal because I’m on the go.

A smoothie is a great way to get a full dose of nutrients and protein in a convenient a drink as you go way. This breakfast is loaded with protein which is slow to digest (keeping you fuller longer), omega 3 (for heart health), fibre (good for digestion), vitamin C and antioxidants (improve immune system).

Notes
You can get hemp seeds and chia seeds at the health food store or Farm Boy. We have heard lots of benefits about flax seeds for their protein and omega 3 contents... Chia and Hemp seeds have more! Chia have no taste so great nutrient boost to smoothies.. Add to your yogurt.. Add to your baking. Hemp seeds have a subtle nutty flavour which adds fullness to what you add it to.
