Step-by-step recipe for super quick berry bowl smoothie
Measure 30g porridge oats into a bowl. Because this recipe calls for a quick method (ie microwave) you will need oats that say quick on the packet. These are just like regular oats, but are milled more finely. You can of course use regular porridge oats but they may not be suitable for microwave. In fact you may just end up with exploding milk so be warned. You could also use a porridge blend like our 5 Grain Organic Porridge, but you may need to cook on the stovetop.
Add 180ml coconut milk. For a creamier coconutty porridge you could use canned coconut milk, or the creamed coconut that you rehydrate yourself. For regular milk, without the dairy, then go for coconut milk in a carton from the fridge.
Microwave on full power for 2 mins. Stir. Again, bear in mind the above notes on the type of porridge you use. There are plenty of other base options for a healthy quick smoothie, something we will run through in another post. If your porridge is a little on the undercooked side, give it another minute.
Add 1 teaspoon coconut oil. You don’t have to do this. There are plenty of essential fatty acids in the flaxseeds, but it does give an extra rich boost to your bowl smoothie if you are hungry or simply feeling decadent.
Add 2 tablespoons flaxseed powder or our LSA mix. A blend of linseed (aka flax), sunflower seeds and almonds, it gives a nutty boost as well as added texture.
Stir to combine.
Garnish with berries…
…and finally a flourish of date syrup.
That’s how quick and easy it can be to maximise nutrition, and flavour, at breakfast (or indeed any other) time.
