Early Starter Smoothie
It is worth investing in a good blender or smoothie maker, not only for a speedy breakfast fix but many are also fantastic for soups and sauces. You can also blend up lolly or frozen yoghurt mixes too.
This smoothie is packed with protein, iron and omega 3 as well as a healthy dose of antioxidants. For the super-organised, you could portion up everything except the milk into zip-lock bags and freeze or refrigerate until needed.
- Large handful kale, tough stalks removed
- Large handful baby spinach
- 1 avocado, flesh removed
- 200ml almond (or oat) milk
- 2 tbsp. oatmeal
- 2 tbsp. flaxseed
- 1 tsp. hemp or chia seeds (optional)
Throw everything in the blender or smoothie maker and process until well combined.
If the mixture is too thick, add either extra almond milk or a couple of ice cubes and re-pulse.
If you would like the smoothie a little sweeter, add a little agave syrup or good quality honey. Next time, try adding kiwi and/or grapes.
