I have been making this smoothie lately as part of my son’s breakfast. He loves it, drinks it up with a straw in a flash and then asks for more. The best thing is it’s loaded with nutrients to give him a healthy start to his day. I have found this smoothie works very well for me during Ramadan, giving me a quick boost of energy at iftar. Almond milk is easy to find these days in most good supermarkets, though make sure you buy the unsweetened kind. If you don’t have almond milk, ordinary milk mixed half and half with water should be ok too. This recipe makes enough for 3 glasses (as shown above).
- 250ml unsweetened almond milk
- 1 ripe banana
- 3 level tablespoons wholegrain rolled oats
- 2 handfuls of young leaf spinach leaves
- 3 heaped tablespoons of frozen (or fresh if you like) berries such as blueberries, strawberries and raspberries
Place all the ingredients in a blender and blend until you get a smooth mixture. Serve immediately.
