I really like breakfast smoothies. This one is full of low glycaemic berries, seeds and even anti-inflammatory turmeric for good measure.
It is thickened with chia and flax seeds, rather than banana, to keep the sugar level down and is bursting with phytoestrogens and soluble fibre – good for hormone balance and cholesterol levels.
If you don’t fancy the turmeric or cinnamon for breakfast, just leave them out.
Ingredients, serves 1
80g frozen blueberries
1 level tablespoon ground flax seeds
1 level tablespoon chia seeds
250ml plant-based milk
¼ teaspoon ground turmeric
¼ teaspoon cinnamon
Blitz together in a food processor, liquidiser or bullet-style blender until combined. Add more milk if too thick.
