In the mood for THE Best Breakfast Smoothie EVER

My girls don’t always feel like breakfast and it can be grind to get them to eat something that will give them energy for the morning. Now when I say I can’t always get them to eat breakfast, I mean a solid breakfast, liquid is no problemo! Smoothies are a great way of getting picky brekkie eaters to drink up and eat something really healthy – it’s like a milkshake to them. Heh, heh, heh, sneaky……

Breakfast Banana SmoothieB1

This smoothie is a powerhouse of health. Bananas are high in potassium, tryptophan, B6, Vitamin C, manganese and fibre. Chia seeds are a major superfood packed with iron, potassium, vitamin C, fibre, omega 3 and protein. And of course, milk and yogurt give you a boost of calcium and protein. You’ll be happy and healthy with strong bones all morning long!

Do you or others in your house struggle with breakfast? Are you a fan of the liquid brekkie? Or do you really need to chew in order for your brain to register that you’ve actually eaten?

 

THE Best Breakfast Smoothie

Serves 1
1 medium banana (90g)
2 tbsp rolled oats
1 tsp chia seeds
½ tsp cinnamon
¼ cup vanilla yogurt*
1 tsp honey
¾ cup low fat milk

Place all ingredients into a blender and blend for about 90 seconds (just to make sure there’s no lumps).

*I use full fat vanilla yogurt for this smoothie to get the extra creaminess, but feel free to lighten it up with a low fat option.

Per serve: 1381.8kj (329.3cals); 8.7g total fat (4.7g saturated fat); 4.6g fibre; 10.1g protein

Healthy eating!
