Breakfast- Forest Fruit Smoothie

This super easy smoothie is already a staple breakfast for me and is just as quick as toast and butter but a much healthier start to the day.  The preparation time states 6 minutes but I did it much quicker than that.

Smoothie Ingredients

I used frozen forest fruits because that’s what the recipe said but it works well with any fruit, frozen or fresh. I often use frozen raspberries or fresh mango or sometimes just banana on its own.

Frozen fruits are great in smoothies because they are already cold and add a different texture. I like the addition of the yogurt but it is optional so entirely up to you. It’s sometimes nice to add a bit of fruit juice too if you don’t fancy it too milky.

I do my best to eat my 5 a day and this is a really good way of getting there and all before 9am! I had this with muesli but I could have just as easily enjoyed double the quantity with anything else.
