My filling daily breakfast smoothie


Drinking a smoothie every morning has been a goal of mine for a long time. For the last three years. But really who has time to create a smoothie every morning? And blenders are aren't common in student kitchens. Roll on living in Glasgow with a 'grown-up' kitchen and the realisation that smoothies that can be made the night before and I can now say I am a dedicated smoothie drinker.

I'm going to get cheesy and health-nutter on you and say that I feel so much better on mornings when I have my breakfast smoothie in me. This isn't a breakfast within itself but I feel fuller longer when I compare it to mornings with a different smoothie or no smoothie at all. I also concentrate longer at work and can go until lunch time (which can sometimes not be until 1pm).

For this smoothie I use:
  • hazelnut milk
  • raspberries
  • blueberries
  • one banana
  • porridge oats
I don't use exact measures and if you make this you can change the measures around what you prefer. I personally love blueberries so they outnumber the raspberries but you may be different. The porridge oats are also just a quick dessert spoon before you hit blend. Remember to cut the banana, but you knew that, right? 

The only measurement that is important is that the milk must come higher than the fruit in the blender, like such: 



This is important because when leaving it to sit overnight it will thicken and possible separate (do not use yogurt because that will separate and be disgusting!) so you want the milk outweighing the fruit.

Press the buzzer, pour into glass, cover in clingfilm, pop in the fridge, go to bed, wake up and enjoy (along with a proper breakfast).

  1. I have a green smoothie every morning, and it's my favourite part of my morning routine. It's incredible how much better you feeling knowing you're starting the day with some goodness.

  4. Ooo, I didn't know you could make smoothies the night before. I've always wanted to be one of those people who have smoothies for breakfast, but a 6am start most mornings does not let me do this :(
