    2

    Ingredients

    • 2 cups of milk (could be non-dairy)
    • 1 medium banana
    • ¼ avocado
    • 1 tbsp unsweetened cocoa
    • 2 tbsp rolled oats
    • 1 tbsp LSA (ground linseed, sunflower seeds, almond mix)
    • handful of spinach, kale or chard leaves

    Custom breakfast smoothie (vegan, no added sugar)

    A super quick and nutritious breakfast drink that can be customised to your liking. Add berries, stone fruit, cherries or other nuts and seeds. Cinnamon and ginger are a great addition too.

    If you like your smoothies super cold, or want to be a little savvy, buy bananas on special, peel then slice and freeze in zip-lock bags for quick access anytime. Blended on their own or with just a little milk they make a perfect and healthy instand icecream.

    Method

    Place all ingredients in a blender or a large jug and blend (with a stick blender if using a jug). Divide between glasses and serve.

    Tips and Tricks

    • Try throwing in other greens that you may need to use up – its a great way to avoid wastage and boost your nutrition, and you won’t taste the difference.

    • If you need to ripen avocados, place in a brown paper bag away from direct sunlight for 2-5 days and add an apple or banana to hasten the ripening process.

    • Bananas store well frozen. Store fully peeled or mashed bananas in a plastic bag in your freezer, ready for use in smoothies or baking.
