Green smoothies have their place but I much prefer the bright pink kind.

I first posted this recipe on the blog back in 2013. I’d recently graduated from university and still trying to shed some of my university weight (freshers 7 is a myth….it’s more like degree 14!) I latched on to the idea of juice diets and smoothie detoxes as a way of getting more fruit into my diet and losing a bit of weight. I loved food too much to commit to replacing lunch or dinner with just a drink but I started whizzing up a smoothie for breakfast each day.

The smoothie craze has now reached full throttle with January signalling to start of the blender and juicer sales in supermarkets and online. If you didn’t jump on the juicing or smoothie bandwagon in 2015 you definitely will in 2016 as it becomes even more affordable.

In the meantime, I wanted to give my breakfast smoothie a bit of a revamp. For me, if you’re swapping breakfast for a drink it still needs to be filling. What’s the point in having a smoothie if by 11am you’re starving hungry again – you’ll just start snacking! With this in mind I’ve added rolled oats which are full of slow release energy and plenty of fibre for a healthy gut.

The raspberries contain antioxidants such as vitamin C, quercetin and gallic acid.

Some research suggests that raspberries are good for your memory too!

Bananas are also jam packed full of vitamins and minerals such as vitamin B6, manganese, potassium, protein, magnesium and folate to name just a few!

To top it all off (and to give the smoothie the perfect consistency) I’ve also added fresh orange juice. Opt for fresh over carton orange juice and you’ll get the benefit of key digestive enzymes. But, if you don’t have the time to squeeze a fresh orange every day the cartoned variety will do just fine.

With this much fibre and fruit in your first meal of the day, it can’t be a bad thing can it? What’s more, this tastes delicious!

  1. I can't stand the thought of this for breakfast! No protein, mostly sugar, I'd be starving again in half an hour haha.If it works for you, though, then great 😀

  2. See I can't stand anything to heavy! The most I cand stand in the morning is fruit and sometimes a small bowl of porridge. This is somewhere in between :p

    1. Thanks Jacqui! I don’t have anything against green smoothies but I love adding oats to fruity ones 🙂 glad I’m not the only one!

  4. I’m totally with you! Much prefer fruity smoothies and also favour a banana base. The only green smoothies I enjoy are ones featuring matcha, not green vegetables! 😉

    1. Ooooh I do love adding a bit of matcha to smoothies! Will have to do that more this year. Thanks for the suggestion. My matcha often ends up in cakes!

    1. I am getting more on board with them the more I drink. Who knows I may actually start liking smoothie bowls next! I think fresh juice makes all the difference in terms of flavour and texture of the drink. Definitely give it a go!

  5. I’ve just jumped on the bandwagon! Second up (first was classic strawberry and banana) is mango, coconut milk and banana. Wish me luck! Haven’t tried oats yet but I think the coconut milk might fill me up enough x

    1. Hi Helen

      They sound delicious! Ive got Mango smoothie on here somewhere and a blueberry and coconut one. Make sure you take a look around 🙂
