Breakfast Smoothie

Recipe Details

This Breakfast Smoothie is quite filling, since it has both oats and bananas in it, and it's very mild and comforting. The below serves two.

If you prefer a richer smoothie, you can use greek yoghurt, with or without honey and add a little vanilla extract.

I use drinking oats from Rude Health (I'm sure you can get other as well), which makes it easy to make the smoothie smooth, but porridge oats works fine as well, you might just want a bit more milk with it.


TIME: 15 mins.

SERVING: 2 Glasses

Temp: N/A


  • 2 big, ripe bananas
  • 4 full tbsp oats
  • 100 g blueberries (frozen are good, acts as icecubes as well)
  • 100 ml low fat vanilla yoghurt
  • 200 ml semi-skimmed milk
  • a squeeze of honey, optional

Green Smoothies?

I have been rather sceptical about this idea of putting spinach and kale in my nice smoothies, thinking that all I would taste was spinach. I decided it was time to try it anyway, and I’m really positively surprised over how good it tastes. I have tested it on a bunch of teenage girls, who bravely took them, and several actually asked for the recipe. Jim has been my other tester, and though his inital reaction was “that looks very healthy” = “I don’t really fancy that”, he decided that it tasted good. My youngest daughter still remains to be convinced but at least she doesn’t think it’s disgusting! If you are not already into green smoothies, I recommend you try them.
