Only 2% of Australians are getting the recommended 30g of nuts a day. Yet the scientific evidence supporting the enormous health benefits to be gained from eating these little nutrition powerhouses is overwhelming. To get your healthy handful think about the ways you get nuts into your day. This is one idea - adding them to your smoothie. 

This smoothie combo was developed by my friend and colleague Jennifer Jenner (JJ) for Nuts for Life. She took that lovely photo too. Thanks to JJ and Nuts for Life for sharing with us. 

If you can't or don't want to use dairy milk, simply substitute a plant-based milk, preferably one fortified with calcium. You could also substitute the blueberries for any other berry or a mix of berries.
