Banana Smoothie

(serves 1)

1 ripe banana
2 tablespoons of low fat, sugar free yogurt
100 ml trim milk
1 tablespoon LSA or ground flaxseed
1 tablespoons oats


  • Blend and serve immediately.

(LSA is a mixture of finely ground linseed, sunflower seeds and almonds. You can find it at most supermarkets).

This is wonderful as a quick breakfast or a snack. It could even be a ‘breakfast on the run’ if you were short of time. Just pour it into a flask or travel mug and drink on the way to work.
