My first ever overflowing smoothie in a jar… I kind of get it, but I absolutely adore the hidden goodness and flavour of this blueberries and cream inspired mixed berry smoothie.

Did you know that anything served in a mason jar has ranked at number 9 of the Most Hipster Foods on the Planet?

My first overflowing smoothie in a jar was a hidden goodness concoction of blue and blackberries, avocado, coconut, banana and chia pudding with raw almonds. Inspired by my trainer’s fifteen year old daughter who is very much into learning all about common-sense clean eating and healthy treats (how awesome is she?). And by Zac who recently “caught me” sneaking avocado into his favourite breakfast smoothie!

Of course, this would work just as well in a glass, but jars are a little more whimsical. Whether they’re here to stay is a topic for a different discussion.

If you're not into berries, you can make it with banana and cacao or orange fruit such as mangoes, rockmelon (cantaloupe) and papaya - all of which are great for eye-health just make sure you have them with a little fat because lutein, vitamin E and zeaxanthin are best absorbed in the presence of fats. Hence the coconut flesh and avocado addition.
