1. Super berry smoothie

Frozen mixed berries are not only great for giving variety to your smoothie, but they’re cheap and convenient too. Adding porridge oats thickens the texture and makes it extra filling – ideal for an on-the-go breakfast.

Our filling green smoothie is packed full of nutritious ingredients. Choose from cavolo nero or spinach and whizz up with flaxseeds, almond butter, cinnamon and the milk of your choice. We went with almond milk as a vegan option. Bananas and dates add a hit of natural sweetness, too.
