We’ve all been there when you are too busy to actually sit down and have breakfast (not an ideal statement in the world of ‘mindful’ eating whoops..but this is reality..). This banana breakfast smoothie is your all in one breakfast. You can make it the night before or first thing in the morning and it’ll kick start your energy, focus and concentration for the day.
Oats – One half cup of oats provides around 4-5 grams of fibre (females need 25g/day and males need 30/g). This makes it a fantastic breakfast option and provides 4-5 times more fibre than white bread! Not only that, but fibre helps to ease constipation and keep you regular, which also helps to lower cholesterol.
Cinnamon – Did you know that half a teaspoon of cinnamon daily can help to reduce blood pressure? Well it certainly can, so this versatile spice has a very welcome place in this smoothie.
Banana – Not only will bananas provide you with a good source of energy, if you’ve been exercising and working up a sweat, their high potassium content makes them a perfect way to replenish your electrolyte stores.
