Breakfast smoothie

Short on time in the mornings? Not a problem with these quick high-protein smoothies. Make one of them for breakfast and you’re good to go.

Each smoothie provides 200 kcal, 16.5g protein, 26.5g carbohydrate (of which 25g sugars), 3g fat (of which 2g saturates), 1g fibre and 0.3g salt.

100g/3½oz fat-free Greek-style yoghurt
1 small banana (75g/2½oz peeled weight), broken up
175ml/6fl oz skimmed milk
pinch ground cinnamon
Recipe tips
Put all the ingredients in a food processor and blend until smooth. Pour into a glass and serve, or into a takeaway bottle and drink on the go.

Recipe Tips
If you chop up your bananas and freeze them in little bags, they won’t go over-ripe and you can have a super-fresh, ice-cold smoothie for breakfast.
