This latest recipe is one that only takes about 2 minutes to make but is a great way to start the day.  Smoothies are becoming an increasingly popular and affordable breakfast that you can take with you on the road, especially if you commute to work on a daily basis.  It’s also a great way to ensure you are well on your way to 5 a day and also helps you get important vitamins and nutrients to get your body started for the day ahead.  In this smoothie we added some milled flaxseed and goji berries from Linwoods.  These are a great source of protein and fibre and another way to provide your body with a great boost to start the day.

Ingredients:

Serves 1 person

There isn’t really any steps to making this smoothie; you simply prepare all your ingredients and blend them together.  The only real preparation you will have to do is the slice the bananas and strawberries but these can simply be halved, as the blender will do the rest of the work.
