Blueberry Breakfast Smoothie (Dairy Free)


This is my favourite breakfast at the moment. It's simple to make, and really filling (something I need during this period of intense essay procrastination). I usually sip this as I do some gentle uni work in the morning, hence the coloured pens. I like to keep my work, and diary, organised. The oats in this really make it into a meal rather than a snack, so it's great for days when you're going to the gym, or simply want to ensure that you don't cave before lunch time!

Ingredients (makes 1 smoothie):


1 banana
2 large or 3 medium/small apples
100ml rice/almond/soya milk
handful of oats
handful of blueberries 
small handful of flaxseeds
honey to top

1.) Peel and roughly chop the banana and apples.

2.) Place in blender. Add blueberries. To cut down on cost (student living and all) I  buy my blueberries when they're reduced and freeze them - one pack lasts me about four smoothies.


3.) Add rice milk, flaxseeds and oats


4.) Blend for 2-3 minutes.


5.) Top with honey if you wish, and enjoy!


Love and Light
