In August and September, the Sunshine Coast is loaded with various berries just waiting to be picked for smoothies (and pies and jams and jellies and crumbles and eating out of hand . . . ). If you’re not lucky enough to have blueberries growing in your backyard, seek them out at your local farmers’ market or substitute whatever berry is in season in your neighbourhood. It takes only an extra minute to turn this blueberry smoothie into a visual feast.
