Super quick smoothies

You know there are some mornings when you are just not allocated enough time to for all the jobs to be done. I can see why some people choose to skip breakfast (there is also an alarming number of children that skip this important meal!!) however I would literally collapse. Breakfast is one of the most important meals of the day to stabilise blood sugars, boost the metabolism and put the brain into gear - don't skip it!

smoothies are a great alternative if you are in a rush. High in protein, calcium, fibre, vitamins and minerals and some iron(just add a weet bix that has been fortified with iron). Made in 30 seconds - there is no excuse for you or the kiddies to skip out the door with no energy. Using fruits in season, they taste good, cheap and healthy.

Banana nutmeg smoothie
1 banana
1 weet bix
100 ml milk
1 teaspoon honey
2 tablespoons vanilla yoghurt
1 pinch nutmeg
3-4 cubes ice

Place all ingredients in blender or food processor
Blend till smooth
Serve immediately

Have a healthy day

You are so right, it's amazing the difference it makes to your day if you skip breakfast, I can't imagine the kids managing without it! Lovely smoothie too, my hubby gave it the thumbs up, thanks!
