Sometimes a quick smoothie is ideal, especially if you don’t have much time allocated in the morning for breakfast. Not only is this recipe easy to memorise, but it is filled with lots of vitamins and minerals to keep your body full for longer. Customise with your favourite fruits and vegetables for a truly one-of-a-kind taste.
The oatmeal gives the entire smoothie some body, and will be perfect as a snack throughout the day or night. Sprinkle chia seeds, or LSA mix over the top for extra health benefits.
1 cup of your preferred milk
1/2 cup frozen strawberries
1/2 cup squeezed orange juice
1 banana, chopped
1 cup oatmeal
1 cup water
1/2 cup frozen blueberries
Pop in the oatmeal and milk and blend until the consistency is smooth – don’t worry if there are any lumps.
Add the frozen banana and frozen fruits then blend together well before including the cup of water into the mixture. Feel free to add a handful of ice if you like your smoothie extra cold. Most blenders have an ice function which won’t ruin the blades.
Then simply serve and enjoy! Recipe makes 2-4 servings.
