How to Make a Blueberry, Coconut and Oat Smoothie

Ingredients for a Blueberry, Coconut and Oat Smoothie
I love to use a combination of fresh and frozen blueberries for this smoothie. For this recipe blueberries is the star of the show, but you can also add a combination of blackberries, raspberries or strawberries.
Simply blend the blueberries with coconut milk and gluten free rolled oats, that provides extra complex carbs and fibre plus keeps you fuller for longer. Win!
I decided to use coconut milk to blend as this creates a delicious creamy and thick smoothie blended with the oats. To get that smoothie bowl consistency you can use chilled coconut cream.
Extra ingredients I use that almost ALWAYS lands up in my smoothies is chia seeds, my very favourite ingredient for protein and antioxidants and your choice of protein powder and a little vanilla essence. Lastly, sweeten the smoothie with your choice of honey or syrup. I am not a huge fan of protein powders much (not found one I love as yet) – but I do love adding some collagen powder.
