Heading into the warmer months in Brisbane the thought of a hot breakfast to meet your recovery needs isn’t always overly appealing. As smoothie can definitely do the trick – rehydrate (tick), protein for recovery (tick), carbohydrates to replenish (tick) and a source of anti-oxidants to assist (tick).
2-3 Tbsp plain yoghurt (Chobani, Rokeby farms & Yo pro are all good high protein options)
2/3 cup raspberries (frozen is best and usually cheaper too!
1/4 cup oats (optional, but an easy way to add in extra fibre + carbohydrate)
1 tsp honey (optional to sweeten)
Add all ingredients into a blender and blitz until smooth
You can mix up the types of fruit you use e.g. blueberries, strawberries. For a hit of greens a handful of baby spinach leaves mixes well too and isn’t an over powering flavour.
