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.

I hope everyone’s had a lovely start to 2015 – I’ve got to say mine’s getting progressively getting better! The start of the year was a bit rocky, but sometimes it’s ok to not be ok – sometimes you have to have a bad day to have a good day, but just remember it all gets better! Trust me.

Ooookk that escalated quickly! Didn’t mean to get all deep up in here!

Moving on, this technically isn’t a juice per say, but it’s a thin smoothie, so ya know, same difference!
It’s super refreshing and light and as usual, feel free to add any more fruit if you want it sweeter, I’m sure oranges would be amazing in this!

My nutribullet arrived!! I’ve wanted one for so so so long and then I won one in a competition yada yada yada but it’s finally here – seems like Christmas came early!

I was slightly overwhelmed as to what to make first; vegan mac ‘n’ cheese, baba ganoush, hummus, vegan pesto, creamy tomato soup – the possibilities are endless!

In the end I settled for a green smoothie!

I’ve got to say: I’m a massive green smoothie lover, however I’m quite specific that I don’t like it to be full of fruit, I like it to be about 60:40 on the veg to fruit ratio.
