The favourite breakfast in our house is a peanut butter and berries smoothie.
It is packed with protein and fibre and we find it keeps our bodies satisfied until 1pm lunchtime.
Here’s the basic recipe – play around with the quantities.
A cupful of frozen berries (Sainsburys do a good, ‘basics’ range pack of strawberries, blackberries, red and black currants) (berries are some of the lowest sugar fruits)
3/4 cup of full fat milk (or use almond milk, rice milk, soya etc)
3/4 cup plain full fat yoghurt
A heaped tablespoon of crunchy or smooth peanut butter (preferably without added sugar or salt) (Meridian is a good make)
Optional scoop of good quality protein powder. (If you find the smoothie without this doesn’t quite keep you going until lunchtime, it might be worth adding this in. We use Sun Warrior brown rice protein)
Blitz it all in a blender until smooth, adding more milk to get the consistency right for you.
