Banana Oat Breakfast Smoothie

Breakfast smoothies are perfect for an energy boost in the morning and are an equally perfect option for breakfast on the go making the Banana Oat Breakfast Smoothie a perfect choice. If you have a busy job and find you are constantly on the move with no time to sit down and eat breakfast, smoothies are a good way to get some energising nutrients to help fuel the day ahead. Having food prepped also helps to avoid grabbing snacks on the go that are typically higher in sugar and saturated fats.

Bananas are a perfect way to kick start your energy intake for the day!

This takes 5 minutes to make and can be made the evening before and stored in the fridge.
