You’ll be surprised how quick and easy it is to make this get-up-and-go smoothie breakfast. Vary the fruit in yours depending on what you have to hand.

Preparation time: 10 minutes
Cooking time: 2 minutes

Serves: 4

Ingredients

2 tbsp porridge oats
2 tsp clear honey
200g frozen Love Life Berry Smoothie Mix
200g Yoomoo Vanilla Frozen Yogurt
150ml apple juice or coconut water
200g raspberries and/or strawberries, sliced
2 tbsp dried blueberries
1 tbsp poppy seeds

Method

  1. Toast the oats in a small non-stick frying pan for 1–2 minutes until golden. Stir in the honey, then tip onto a piece of baking parchment and leave to cool.
  2. Place the smoothie mix, frozen yogurt and apple juice or coconut water in a strong blender and whizz until smooth and thick. Divide among bowls and top with the toasted oats, fruit and poppy seeds.

Cook’s tip

If you’re in a hurry, skip step 1 and whizz the oats and honey in with the smoothie.
