Try this yummy healthy breakfast muesli smoothie for a fruity protein hit.
Layer these ingredients in a glass and enjoy:
- muesli – untoasted / unsweetened
- plain Greek yoghurt
in a large bowl, mix together1 bag of oats with your choice of
- slivered almonds
- chia seeds
- coconut shreds
- sunflower seeds
Store in an airtight container and enjoy 1/3 cup of muesli with milk, yoghurt and fruit for a delicious, low GI protein hit breakfast
I have a yoghurt maker and use the full fat Greek yoghurt mix to keep up with demand for this protein hit in my family.
If you prefer to buy yoghurt – avoid the flavoured varieties, especially the low fat kinds. Most manufacturers put in extra sugar and additives to make it taste better.
in my opinion you’re better off having the extra fat (and full fat yoghurt is only about 3-5% fat which is still incredibly low) and less sugar.
- 1 frozen banana
- 2 tbsp coconut milk (you can leave this out if you prefer)
- fruit of your choice (I used cherries here, but blueberries, strawberries, raspberries etc are also great)
- vanilla essence
The frozen banana gives the smoothie a delicious thick and creamy texture. It’s also a summertime favourite on hot days.
