With many of us heading back into the office, we have created some healthy, easy recipes you can make the night before: pop in the fridge and grab and go in the morning. This berry smoothie has a mix of protein, carbs and healthy good-for-you berries.
What You Need
½ cup oats
1 tbsp blueberries
1 tsp maple syrup or honey
½ to 1 cup water
1 tbsp pistachio nut butter
1 tsp of açaí (optional)
Pop into the blender and blitz until smooth.
Store in the fridge overnight or enjoy immediately.
You can find açaí in most health shops – it’s an added boost of vitamins and bright colour!
You can use any plant milk or milk of your choice instead of the water. This recipe will also work well with plain yoghurt.
The sweetener is up to you! Even a sprinkling of xylitol is an option that could work well.
The pistachio nut butter can be replaced with peanut butter or any nut butter of your choice.
If you want to drink the smoothie immediately, add some blocks of ice.
If you’re exercising in the morning, make sure to add a scoop of protein powder of your choice to help with recovery.
