Frozen Raspberry Vanilla Frappe For quite some time I have been obsessed with my Banana, Cinnamon and Oat Smoothie and I’ve found it hard to choose something else for brekkie but this morning I got up and the last banana was beyond brown and I had to go for something else. Overdue for supermarket shopping I found my options were somewhat limited, but I always keep frozen berries (raspberries, blueberries and strawberries) in the freezer so that’s where I turned. This smoothie is ridiculously quick and easy, and on a day like today when the weather was quite balmy – so yummy and refreshing!!   Recipe 150 ml of chilled, filtered water* 25 ml organic cream (Yup, you read that right. Cream. I will explain later**) 1 1/2 scoops of Whey Less French Vanilla*** 1/2 cup frozen raspberries Blend, blend and blend! If you’ve read my earlier recipe forgive me for repeating myself here, ignore the rest of this article, and enjoy your smoothie – but for anyone who is scratching their head, read on. Notes: * about the chilled, filtered water. I am personally not a fan of ice-cold drinks but typically smoothies are made with milk cold from the fridge. Omitting this and using room temperature water means it can be a bit tepid and meh. So the chilled water gives the smoothie the right mouth feel and flavour. ** about the organic cream. I do sometimes make my smoothies using straight milk (organic of course) but when you use this blend of water and cream you end up with roughly the same amount of fat but half the sugar content. This is a nifty little option...

Banana, Cinnamon and Oat Smoothie I’m not a morning person. At least not Monday through Friday when I’m trying to fit 16 hours of work into 10, along with a social life. So when I’ve hauled myself out of bed and woken my mind and body with some exercise – this is one of my go-to, 60-second breakfasts.What I love about this smoothie is it really feels like a full breakfast in a cup – great texture, divine fragrance, tastes delicious and it’s super filling. For those of you equally time and/or energy-strapped in the morning let’s cut to the chase! My Recipe 150 ml of chilled, filtered water* 25 ml organic cream (Yup, you read that right. Cream. I will explain later**) 1 1/2 scoops of Whey Less French Vanilla*** 1/2 banana 2 tsp oats A dash or 2 of cinnamon Blend the begeesus out of it. Drink. Enjoy. Run out the door and have a fabulous day!
