This smoothie recipe is one of my favourites - it's simple, nutritious and a great way to start the day. Blueberries are a great source of Vitamin C, manganese, dietary fibre, and phytonutrients which act as anti-oxidants. Cashews provide our body with protein, anti-oxidants, iron, magnesium, Vitamin B6 and healthy fats; they also give the smoothie a delicious creaminess.

Ingredients
1 punnet of fresh blueberries
1/2 cup cashews or cashew pieces
1/3 teaspoon mixed spice or ground cinnamon
1 cup water
1/2 teaspoon each of flaxseed oil and hemp oil (optional)

Method
Add all ingredients to the blender and mix well until consistency is smooth.



Tips
Try to buy organically grown blueberries if possible - they aren't on this year's Dirty Dozen list but neither did they make it onto the Clean Fifteen list (most and least heavily sprayed fresh produce).
If you prefer it a little sweeter add one fresh, pitted date soaked for a minute or two in hot water to soften it.
You can substitute the water for milk of your choice but it isn't necessary and will add unwanted calories.
I use flaxseed and hemp oil to get essential omega fatty acids as I don't eat seafood.
Cashew pieces are cheaper to buy than whole cashews - anywhere you can buy bulk foods you should be able to get them, even my local Coles has them now.
