I often start my day with a smoothie. If you’re a busy mum or professional like me, you don’t always have time for an elaborate meal. A smoothie only takes a few minutes to make and is packed full of essential vitamins and minerals.

  • Two handfuls of frozen strawberries

  • 1/2 cup unsweetened oat milk

  • Two tablespoons of unsweetened coconut yogurt

  • One tablespoon of flax seeds


Place all ingredients in the blender and blend until your desired consistency.


If you want a more desert-like smoothie, use less oat milk. Add cinnamon to help boost your metabolism and strengthen your immune system. Add four walnut halves and blend for a few seconds if you want texture and healthy fats. I often add protein powder. Substitute oat milk for either soy or rice (unsweetened). There are no rules. Experiment and adjust to what’s in your refrigerator or freezer.
