Who doesn’t love a delicious smoothie to start the day? I find it such a perfect breakfast as it’s so easy to put a good chunk of your 5-a-day into your morning and it makes you feel amazing!
I love adding oats to my smoothie as I find it makes them so much more filling as I tend to get hungry an hour after having just a plain smoothie. They also make the smoothie super creamy and rich as an added bonus!
I’ve chosen to serve it in a bowl here as I think it’s so fun to put toppings on and make it look beautiful, but if it’s just an average morning I’ll just put it in a bottle good to go.

This smoothie bowl is such an easy and fun breakfast. Feel free to change up the fruits to make a different flavour as this recipe serves as a guideline. I like adding some greens, although the colour isn’t as appealing as it goes slightly brown! Adding oats and nut butter makes the smoothie much more filling so if your looking to have it as a meal, I would recommend adding these.
1 ripe banana (frozen if possible)
1 cup blueberries (strawberries also work well here)
Handful of oats
1-1.5 cups milk (I use almond or oat)
Optional: superfoods such as chia/ flaxseeds, nut butter, spinach/kale
Toppings: shredded coconut, banana, superfoods, granola or muesli
If using, blend the oats into a fine powder.
Add the banana, blueberries, 1 cup of milk and any optional ingredients.
Blend until smooth. If it’s too thick, add more milk or water until the perfect consistency.
Serve immediately or leave in the fridge until ready to serve.
