Bananas, blueberries and oats
Bananas, blueberries and oats are all budget and staple ingredients that are easy to keep on hand. We like to use frozen fruit in this smoothie as it’s not only easy to store but it also gives the smoothie a lovely thick shake consistency.
- Bananas are a great ingredient in smoothies. They are high in potassium and have a lot of healthy fibres that can help curb appetite as well as burning fat.
- Blueberries are packed with nutrients and antioxidants that can protect you against several diseases and help you slim down naturally. Numerous studies have linked berries with a wide range of health benefits, including weight loss and cancer prevention.
- There’s a very good reason so many people include oats in their breakfast! Aside from the vitamins, minerals, fibre and antioxidants, this gluten-free grain also can lower blood sugar levels to make you feel fuller for longer.
- This recipe calls for unsweetened almond milk but you can use any low-fat milk of choice. Unsweetened almond milk is particularly low in calories, with one cup coming in at around 60 calories.
