Juicy blue pearls packed with antioxidants, blueberries flourish in the Waikato. Locally grown berries are in season from Nov-Feb.  Make the most of them and enjoy a fun day out picking your own at Blueberry Country (in Ngatea and Ohaupo) Stock up the freezer for blueberry muffins, pies, smoothies and more all year round.


Brilliant Blueberry Smoothie

(Serves 1)
1 Banana
½ cup blueberries (frozen are best)
1 tbsp Chia seeds
1 tbsp rolled oats
½ cup of reduced fat yoghurt (I use Piako yoghurt.  You could use Quark or an unsweetened yoghurt you may just have to add a bit of honey or Agave or Yacon syrup to sweeten it depending on your taste)
1 tbsp LSA

Soak the oats and chia seeds in ½ cup water for half an hour or better still overnight in the fridge.

Add this and all the remaining ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth.  Serve and enjoy.
