As a kid, my brother and I would stay with my grandparents over the summer so we could spend time with them and my cousins. My grandmother was a talented baker and I used to love her scratch-made pie recipes. If I could go back in time, I would have asked her to share some of her pie crust secrets with me! Instead of trying (and failing) to whip up a pie as good as my grandmother’s for this month’s recipe redux theme, I decided to go with something super simple – a blueberry pie smoothie.
Now that blueberries are in season, they are a great addition to breakfast. I like to add them to my yogurt and oatmeal or whip them into a smoothie like this one. Blueberries are a great source of vitamin C which is essential for the health of your skin and gums. They are also low calorie and high in fiber. To make this smoothie even more filling, I added some rolled oats and chia seeds, both of which are good sources of fiber. The almond butter and yogurt add some satisfying protein.
