This is the third of my smoothie recipes for the first full week of January. I past two smoothies were the Creamy Green Energy Machine and Tropical Dream.

Today’s smoothie  is a tasty, sweet, cherry and banana smoothie which has the addition of fresh ginger root to give a little kick. The bananas are packed with potassium, the cherries with antioxidants, and the flaxseed with omega 3. Moreover, the oats contain slow-release energy to get you going while the milk gives you calcium. What more could you want to kick start your day?!


Breakfast smoothie with a kick

Ingredients: 

  • 1 banana
  • 1 cup semi-skimmed milk (or unsweetened almond / soya milk)
  • 1/3 cup frozen cherries
  • 1/2-1 tsp fresh ginger
  • 1 tbsp flaxseed (find in health food shops)
  • 3 tbsp oats

Optional: 1 tbsp chia seeds (find in health food shops)


Method:

Place everything into a jug and blend with a hand blender until fully combined into fruity deliciousness!

Serve straight away perhaps over some ice if you want a super cooling breakfast.

Have a great day,

Helen x
