This week at Lady Brisbane I am celebrating the beautiful Jacaranda flower that is currently blooming across our city. 

I wanted to start Jacaranda week by sharing with you the recipe I use to make my blueberry breakfast smoothie which I’ve decided to rename the Jacaranda smoothie. 

Jacaranda flowers are too pretty to eat and probably not edible so for this recipe I am using blueberries to achieve the iconic purple Jacaranda colour. 

Here is my recipe for my Jacaranda Smoothie (Serves 1) –

You will need – 

1/2 cup of fresh or frozen blueberries

1 cup of milk

1/2 banana – fresh or frozen – skin removed

2 tablespoons of rolled oats

2 tablespoons of yoghurt – optional

Method – 

1. Place all ingredients in a blender, I use a Nutri Bullet

2. Blend together and enjoy.

While I have this smoothie for breakfast, you can really enjoy it at any time of the day. Let me know below in the comments if you have a favourite smoothie recipe.
