By adding oats and flax seeds to your fruit smoothie will not only help you feel fuller longer but will also slow down the rate at which the natural sugars from the fruit hit your system, helping you to avoid peaks and lows in blood sugar levels throughout the day.
You can also add other fruits, for example, bananas, mango, strawberries, and raspberries. This smoothie is great before workouts and the start of a work day.
