Delicious and healthy blueberry smoothie recipe with walnuts and chia seeds for added health benefits

Breakfast is one meal I love using a quick and simple breakfast recipe with little to no cleanup. Yet, I’m one of those people, and maybe you are too, who needs a fair amount of fuel to start the day and keep my energy up for the next meal. So skipping breakfast just isn’t in the cards for me.

Thankfully, some brilliant person in the past invented smoothies! It has completely saved me from pouring nutrition depleted bowls of sugary cereal and feeding it to my unsuspecting family happy to indulge without question. Now, making a nutritious breakfast for my family is as easy as five minutes at the blender, a few healthy ingredients, and done.

I especially love to top it off with some fresh fruit and a few nuts to make it even more of a meal.
