This is one of those short and sweet posts that you can whiz through on a toilet break but hopefully learn something useful from.
I’m sharing today my current favourite/staple breakfast smoothie. I can’t get enough of this thing its tasty, filling and full of goodness. Although my favourite part about it is I always have the ingredients on hand.
Ingredients: (I’ve listed the quantities I use but feel free to make it your own)
1 Frozen Banana
1/4 Cup Oats (I used rolled oats)
1/4 Almond Milk
Splash of Vanilla Extract
Dash of Cinnamon
A few cubs of Ice
1/2 Cup water (Just enough to help your blender/bullet whiz around easily)
Pop it all in your blender or bullet esk whizzing machine and go for your life. Now I promised that this would be ‘full of goodness’ so allow me to enlighten you (if you don’t already know 😉 ).
Banana’s: High in Potassium which helps lower your blood pressure. They are also full of dietary fibre which is perfect in the morning to get everything moving.
Oats: Low GI food which means a slow constant release of energy (feel fuller for longer).
Almond Milk: Is just a-m-a-z-i-n-g, one of the more special benefits to note are flavonoids which help to protect the heart, and then there is the obvious protein, calcium, manganese, iron etc.
[If your trying to loose weight substituting any dairy milk for a plant or grain based alternative will help. As whole milk per cup has 136 cal, light milk 95 cal but almond milk only has 39 (brands depending)]
Cinnamon: One of the bests spices ever. It can lower blood sugar levels, reduce risk of heart disease, its loaded with anti oxidants, and anti-inflammatories etc.
Water: Hydration -> great for everything 🙂
See told ya’. :):) x
now back to work 😉
