Smoothie bowl recipe (serves 1)

Ingredients

  • 30g oats
  • 1 banana
  • 150ml cold milk
  • Handful blueberries
  • A few ice cubes (optional)

Method

  1. Put everything into a blender, pulse until smooth and creamy then pour into a bowl.
  2. Decorate with extra fruit, a dollop of nut butter if you fancy and a sprinkle of oats to make it look pretty.

TOP TIP – If you’ve got frozen banana and frozen blueberries use them. If not, add a few ice cubes instead to make the mixture thick and chilled.
