After a few days (or weeks…) of excess I often like to moderate my intake of blatantly bad food by having a really simple and healthy breakfast. Whilst living in Sydney for 5 or so years, I really got into smoothies, particularly at breakfast time. There are so many fresh juice bars and stands, that grabbing one on the run is too easy. They are quick, packed with fruit and protein and leave you feeling fuller than you would think liquid could.
I haven’t seen so many places providing this type of breakfast fare in UK or Europe, fortunately, making them at home is easy too and a great way to start the day.
Serves: 1 large or two small
250ml soy milk (oat, rice or even skim cows milk are fine too!)
Handful of really ripe strawberries, raspberries or blueberries (these could even be frozen)
Around 6-8 ice cubes
2-3 tablespoons of muesli
1 teaspoon of manuka (or other) honey
1. Put all ingredients in a good blender
2. Blitz in pulse mode for around 45 seconds or so till you end up with a good even slush like consistency
3. Pour into glass and drink whilst feeling virtuous.
Tip: if you have kids that need supplements like probiotics, omega 3 oil, iron tonic, etc then this is a great thing to sneak these things into.
