Healthy Blueberry Smoothie

With Marika Day

This delicious and healthy breakfast treat isn’t just easy on the eyes, it’s good for them too!


Blueberries are packed with antioxidants, which can be beneficial in maintaining good eye health. Leafy spinach is loaded with carotenoids and essential vitamins that are important in good eye health and macula.

Even the humble yoghurt is rich in zinc, which helps our eyes produce melanin and more recent studies suggest that flaxseeds found in flax meal may be helpful to prevent dry eyes.
