Blueberry and Blackberry smoothie shakes

Get your new year off to a fresh start with this beautifully-colored, eye-nutrient-rich smoothie recipe! Smoothies are a wonderful “feelgood” nutrient source that can help boost our sense of wellbeing, while also providing a treat-like sensation to satisfy a desire for sweet flavors. What better way to start a fresh year than a fresh fruit smoothie? We say, add a little extra eye-friendly nutrient like flax seed…

The flaxseeds in this recipe provide a superb source of omega 3 fatty acids which are great for regulating fluid retention and normalizing eye pressure which can help prevent dry eye and even help fend off glaucoma.

Plus, the powerful antioxidants Vitamins C and E, courtesy of peaches and blueberries, are helpful for protecting against eye damage that can lead to Age-related Macular Degeneration.

INGREDIENTS

  • 3/4 Cup Driscoll’s Blueberries
  • 1/2 Cup almond milk or favorite juice
  • 1/2 Cup non-fat plain Greek yogurt
  • 1 Tbsp. ground flaxseeds
  • 2 Tablespoons honey
  • 3 Ounces ice cubes (not needed if using frozen peaches)
  • 1 small peach, roughly chopped or 1/2 cup frozen peaches

DIRECTIONS

Blend blueberries, peach, almond milk, yogurt, flaxseeds, honey and ice in a blender until pureed and smooth, stirring several times. Serve immediately.
