Recipe: Berry and Oat Breakfast Smoothie

The little peeks of sun we’ve been getting here recently are making me long for more warm spring days, longer evenings, flowers and fresh salads. Spring is teasing us! I’ve been making this fruity smoothie for the last few mornings to urge it along and it’s cheering me up no end. I’ve slightly tweaked it each time and this is definitely my favourite version. It’s a great energy boost and keeps me full for aaages. So yum!

Yiskah Knits: Berry and Oat Breakfast Smoothie

Makes: 1 large portion (400ml)

– 1 cup frozen mixed berries
– 1/3 cup porridge oats
– Big squeeze of runny honey
– 1/4 cup of milk

Tip the oats into a 1 cup measure and fill to the top with boiling water. Let it sit a little while to loosen up the oats. This step is totally necessary unless you want to drink a glass of dusty pink goop. Trust me! Tip all of this into a blender along with the other ingredients and whizz away. If you like a thinner consistency you can add a touch more water. I’m excited to try lots of different flavours and mixes, so i’ll post again if I find a winner. Come on spring, hurry the hell up!
