Now that I’m back into eating as well as I can (through the week anyway!), once again I’m drinking my awesome breakfast smoothie regularly, so I thought I’d share my recipe with you. I used to have this every morning before drama school last year: it’s really fast to make, I used to chuck it into a travel cup and drink on the way to school (great for mornings when you’ve pressed snooze one too many times!), it’s super healthy aaand is great for slow-releasing energy, meaning it would keep me going all the way to lunchtime!
You will need:
A hand-held liquidiser or fancy smoothie-making machine thing (which I’m yet to invest in!)
1 medium ripe banana
A small handful of frozen berries – I usually use blueberries, as their seeds are super tiny so I don’t have to chew my smoothie!
1 heaped tsp peanut butter – I use smooth peanut butter, resulting in a smoother smoothie(!) and I also use peanut butter which is made from 100% peanuts, making it sooo much better for you than the ones with yucky additives such as nasty palm oil
2 tbsp. oats – I actually use Ready Brek (or a supermarket own brand equivalent) as these oats are finer and often have extra things like calcium and folic acid added
1 tbsp. natural low-fat yogurt
½ cup milk
Basically chuck all the ingredients in the jug and liquidize!
Of course, if you don’t consume dairy, then you can use the fantastic alternatives out there, which I’m sure will make an equally wonderful smoothie, and provide other nutritional value as well.
