The Easiest Breakfast Smoothie

I love breakfast smoothies, they’re the best way to kick start a great day! I know lots of people think that eating healthily takes a long time but smoothies are the easiest, quickest things – it literally takes me two minutes to throw everything in the blender, blend it up and then if I’m really busy I’ll just take it on the go with me.

This is a seriously delicious smoothie. The banana, oats and almond milk make it super thick and creamy, while the berries give it a beautiful colour and a sweet, fruity flavour and the spinach gives you a good dose of revitalising greens! I also add a little hemp powder for a protein boost and chia seeds to thicken it up. If you like a little something sweet in the morning try adding a couple of medjool dates to the mix too, they sweeten it up and enhance the creaminess and if you feel like you need a crunch, add a little less milk and then pour the smoothie into a bowl and top it with your favourite granola, nuts, seeds, raisins, cacao nibs, fruit etc for a delicious smoothie bowl.

Serves 1

– 1 banana

– 1 big handful of spinach (35g)

– 2 handfuls of frozen berries (these keep it cool and are much cheaper than fresh berries, but fresh berries and a little ice work perfectly instead) (80g)

– 1 cup of almond milk (250ml)

– 3 tablespoons of oats

– 1 tablespoon of hemp powder

– 1 tablespoon of chia seeds

Optional: 2 medjool dates

Simply peel the banana and pit the dates, then pour everything into your blender and blend until smooth!
