This morning, I made myself THE most delicious smoothie. Here is the recipe, for those who might like to try it. If you have a fancy blender you can just whack it all in together and blend, but I don’t so I have to do it in this order. You’ll need:
4 ice cubes, crushed
6 frozen raspberries
1/2 cup natural yoghurt
1/2 cup rolled oats
1tbsp maple syrup
1 cup of coconut water
You can tweak the recipe to suit your taste, I did! I can’t remember where I found this recipe oune but I’ve changed it quite a bit so I’m not too worried about stealing anyone’s recipe!
Start off by blitzing the oats in the blender so they are more of a powdery consistency. I know from experience it’s hard to get oats through a straw if you don’t do this!
Then blend the raspberries.
Then add your banana, your yoghurt, and your coconut water, finishing off with a tbsp of maple syrup just to make it lovely and sweet!
And voilà, a delicious smoothie perfect for breakfast. Not perfect for when you go round a corner in your car, the cup topples over, the lid falls off and your ENTIRE car interior is covered in pink mush. It looked like that time when I was 11 and my grandma gave me too much strawberryade and I threw up at the hairdressers.
PS. If you have made it to here and are wondering why there is a picture of something that clearly isn’t a smoothie at the top of the page… It’s one of life’s great mysteries. Nah, I just didn’t take a picture of the smoothie so that was my breakfast from Monday instead!
