Blueberry Goji Superfood Smoothie

Next in the series of awesome smoothies that I have been trying out is this Blueberry Goji Smoothie. As usual, the frozen banana add the creamy texture, no need to add any ice. Goji berry has been in my list of things to try for long. Goji berries contain vitamin C, vitamin B2, vitamin A, iron, selenium and are very good for your immune system. Flax seeds  that I always add to my smoothie is a great source of Omega 3 fatty acid. Great source for those who do not eat fish. Blueberries are full of anti oxidants and a great source of Vitamin K. The addition of oats makes this an absolutely fantastic smoothie.

Ingredients (makes 2 cups)

Frozen Chopped Banana 1
Blueberries 1 cup
Goji Berries 1 tbsp
Flax Seeds 1 tbsp
Oats 1/2 cup
Soy Milk (or use regular milk, almond milk) 1 cup

Method of Preparation

1. Powder the flax and goji berries. Add the oats and powder that as well. If using nutribullet/vitamix etc you do not need to do this step separately.

2. Blend together the frozen banana and blueberries.

3. Add the milk, flax, oats and goji berries. Blend till combined.
