This is something I make in seconds for my kids as a very healthy pudding. They love it. It’s somewhere between ice-cream and a smoothie. For me, I sometimes have it as a breakfast. I add a handful of oats, and if I’ve just had a bike or run, a scoop of protein powder.
Why it’s great:
Yogurt: calcium, protein, good bacteria for the digestion Berries: antioxidants,
phytonutrients and fibre. Oats: for slow release energy, soluble fibre, B-glucan cholesterol lowering, carbs for replacing muscle glycogen stores post workout. Protein powder: 20g extra protein post workout for muscle recovery and maintenance, also keeps you feeling full up for longer.
- frozen berries: 1 big handful per person
- Oats: 1 small handful per person (about 30g)
- Natural yogurt: 3 tablespoons per person
- Honey: 1/2-1 teaspoon per person
Method: whizz up in a blender, in my blender I’ve to give it a shake every few seconds to get all the ingredients down to the bottom.
Eat with a spoon!
If you use a flavoured yogurt, there’s no need to add honey as it should be sweet enough already.
Here’s what I used this evening……
