This is the ideal ‘whip up and serve in an instant’ breakfast. For a thicker smoothie, double the amount of oat bran or breakfast biscuit. Feel free to experiment with other favourite fruits as well. Frozen mixed berries work particularly well in this smoothie.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
1 litre vanilla soy milk, chilled
2 ripe bananas, peeled and cut into chunks
250g strawberries, (or mixed berries of choice)
1 breakfast biscuit, crumbled, such as Weet-Bix or Vita Brits
or 1/4 cup oat bran
ice, to serve (optional)

Method

  1. Place all the ingredients in a food processor or blender and process until smooth.
  2. Serve immediately, over ice if you like.

Super ingredient: Soy milk

  • Foods made from soy beans are nutritional ‘all-rounders’. Soy has twice as much protein as other beans – and it’s the best quality protein the plant kingdom has to offer, including the 8 essential amino acids normally found in animal protein. Soy milk is enriched with calcium, to the same level as in milk. And it’s an easy way to obtain soy’s phyto-oestrogens, natural plant hormones known as isoflavones, that may help women through the menopause. Additionally, soy milk contains polyunsaturated oil, some omega-3 essential fatty acids and a number of B vitamins.
