Being a mum of two very young children I’m always finding that I tend to forget to have breakfast and as we all know and have been told countless times by our parents and health professionals ‘breakfast is the most important meal of the day’. I do find I need to eat in the morning so that my body is fuelled for the day ahead. If I don’t eat my breakfast I tend to find my mood isn’t as good and I’m tired a lot earlier in the day.
I have always loved shakes, juices and smoothies but now more than ever I have taken to making them on an almost daily basis to help me fill my body with nutritious food that I can quickly consume and perfect for me while I’m on the go with my boys.
My all time favourite smoothie is my Banana Breakfast Smoothie. I invented this smoothie a few years back when I was living in Indonesia with my now husband. I found breakfast in Indonesia to be a difficult meal for me because they have a lot of sugar in their foods, their breakfast cereals are not the same as what I am accustomed to and I wanted something filling, nutritious and delicious.
It’s an easy smoothie to make. Most of these ingredients you will have in your cupboard and fridge.
- 2 Cups Milk
- 1 Small Banana
- ¼ Cup Natural Rolled Oats
- 1 Small Granny Smith (green) Apple- Peeled and cored.
- 1 Tbsp Peanut Butter
- 1 Tsp Coconut Oil
- 1 Tsp Organic Raw Honey
- 1 Tsp Chia Seeds
- Peed fuit and cut into large pieces.
- Place all ingredients in your blender and blend until smooth
I honestly love this Banana Breakfast Smoothie. It’s healthy, quick and easy for on the go. Perfect for the busy mum 😉
