Wake-up fruit smoothie
For a quick and easy energy boost in the morning, try a smoothie
Place 80g of blueberries, 1 small banana (peeled), 150ml of semi-skimmed milk or apple juice (your choice) and 1 teaspoon of honey (omit if preferred) in a blender & blend until smooth. Add nuts, hemp seeds, flaxseed or wheatgerm for protein and extra nutrients and wheat bran for extra fibre. Serve in a large glass.
For variety, replace the berries with any soft fruits that are in season. Use frozen or tinned fruit if preferred.
