Breakfast Healthy With Fruit Smoothies
One of these keeps me fueled up all morning and don’t forget you can add a teaspoon of rolled oats or even muesli if a bit of extra low release carb is needed.
For Each Person
- 1 ripe banana (chilled)
- 4 – 6 strawberries (chilled)
- ½ pint of skimmed or semi skimmed milk
- ½ teaspoon of honey – optional (sweetener for diabetics)
- 1 well filled teaspoon of natural unsweetened yoghurt – optional
Put all the ingredients into a blender and whiz up for a few seconds until blended to the texture you prefer.
After making it, you can refrigerate for ½ an hour or so to get it even more chilled –just stir before serving. Alternatively, in really hot weather why not freeze the fruit and freeze down some milk in ice cube trays – I do the same with the yoghurt when we want an ice cold breakfast smoothie.
Generally I keep frozen fruit and yoghurt cubes ready for the Yonanas iced treat maker, which by the way is another deliciously decadent breakfast without the sugar and fat – you can read more about the Yonanas Iced Treat Maker here.
I must just include a link out here to Crazy For Crust – I have no idea how Dorothy stays so slim with this lot of awesome milkshake recipes, but she seems to. These are not a healthy alternative, but the ones I’ve made so far are utterly delicious – you will need to go on a sugar fast for the rest of the day (it’s sooo worth it).
As far as my smoothies go, we’ve tried numerous fruit mix ups now, including using peaches and mangoes. These didn’t work well – they weren’t awful but they tasted of bananas with little else coming through – best by far is the banana and strawberry combination.
