Whipping up a creamy and delicious smoothie with nutritious ingredients takes less time than putting together a cooked breakfast or preparing muesli or porridge and smoothies are far more nutritious than toast. It's the ultimate healthy breakfast-on-the-go.

Ingredients

1 cup almond milk

1/2 cup plain, unflavoured yoghurt 

3-4 large, dried figs

2 teaspoons LSA mix (linseeds, sunflower seeds and almond meal) OR 1 tablespoon almond butter

2 teaspoons chia seeds

1 small, ripe banana

Dash of vanilla essence

Method

For a fibre boost: add 1 tablespoon oat bran or an additional teaspoon of chia seeds.

For a chocolate-flavoured smoothie: add 1 tablespoon raw cacao powder. Cacao powder is also a good source of several minerals and fibre.

Place all ingredients in a blender and whizz until fluffy.
