 Dragon Fruit & Mango Smoothie

Dragon Fruit & Mango Smoothie

Smoothies

Serves 1

Smoothies are the easiest breakfast ever – just chuck all the ingredients in a blender and whizz away! I often freeze my fruit too (first cutting it up into small pieces so it’s easier to break up) so I don’t even have to spend time chopping. Another great thing about smoothies is that it’s a brilliant way of sneaking vegetables into breakfast – raw spinach can be added to berry smoothies or chocolatey smoothies, and you can’t even taste it! I love the combination of oats, almond milk, banana, blueberries, peanut butter and spinach.

Basic breakfast smoothie recipe:

1 banana – fresh or frozen

1 cup of water or milk, coconut water or freshly-squeezed juice such as apple juice

½ cup of oats (optional)

1tsp of chia seeds

 

Possible additions to the mixture:

A handful of fresh spinach

½ an avocado

1 kiwi

½ cup of chopped mango / papaya / pineapple

½ cup strawberries / raspberries / blueberries

1 tbsp of peanut butter / almond butter

½ cup of Greek yogurt

1 tsp of cacao powder

1 tsp of honey

a handful of dates

1 tsp of cinnamon

Method:

1.     Place all the desired ingredients into a blender and blend until smooth.

2.     Pour into a glass and enjoy!
