Berry and Banana Smoothie Recipe

This is one of my go-to breakfast recipes for when I need something quick to make yet still delicious. It's even possible to pre-package the ingredients in a sandwich bag to keep in the fridge overnight. Then all you need to do in the morning is tip it into the blender, give it a whizz and you're good to go. A healthy breakfast to tide you over until lunchtime comes calling.

I most definitely am a breakfast person, but for those of you who can't seem to stomach a huge meal early in the day, this smoothie is the perfect option as it is light but still substantial.


For one person, you will need:
1 banana (fresh or frozen)
1 large handful of raspberries
1 large handful of blueberries
1-2 tsp of almond butter
2 tbsp rolled oats
1/2-1 cup of almond milk (depending on how thick you like it)

A handful of spinach (for added greens)
Any superfood powders (e.g. maca, baobab, raw cacao)
Medjool dates (for added sweetness)
All that's required is to gather all of the aforementioned ingredients, throw them in the blender and blend until completely smooth.
The simplest breakfast to make for those adverse to cooking yet still mouth-wateringly good.
Simply pour into a glass, or a Kilner jar if you're into the aesthetics of food, and enjoy. Try as part of a leisurely brunch or as a grab and go breakfast for your journey to work.

Just look at that colour.. you've got to try it! I promise you won't be disappointed.
