The Blackberry Breakfast Smoothie

This rehydrating breakfast smoothie made from seasonal fruit and vegetables offers a rich source of calcium, vitamin C and protein.

The ratio of vegetables to fruit plus protein, helps to control the total calorie and carbohydrate intake for avoiding unexpected spikes to blood sugar levels. Just one serve contains the equivalent of approximately 2 serves of fruit and 1 serve of vegetables, contributing to the Australian healthy guidelines recommendation of 2 fruit and 5 veg servings for an Australian adult per day.

The chia seeds also offer some additional dietary fibre and omega 3 fatty acids for assisting with healthy blood lipid (cholesterol) levels and healthy blood vessels which can be damaged with poor blood sugar control.
