Breakfast Smoothie of Champions

There's a subtle bit of kid marketing in the title! The following recipe I’ve tweaked over the years to make it as appealing as possible to my little darlings, whilst also appealing to the mother in me that enjoys seeing them tuck into a drink that’s delicious as well as nutritious. My philosophy is to just keep encouraging and be as positive as possible. All of a sudden, they’re drinking the smoothies and thoroughly enjoying them...truth! You can adapt the recipe according to what’s in season. We store excess fruit in the freezer, including pesky bananas that have over ripened in the fruit bowl. Just chuck the whole thing in the freezer.


  • Generous bunch of parsley (from the garden)

  • 3 - 4 kale leaves (could also use chard or spinach - from the garden)

  • A handful of frozen raspberries

  • A handful of frozen mango

  • Half a frozen banana

  • A tablespoon of sheep’s yoghurt (or any plain, unsweetened yoghurt)

  • About 3 tablespoons of rolled oats

  • A tablespoon of chia seeds

  • A teaspoon of pepitas

  • Milk - can be almond, soy or cow - enough to cover above ingredients

  • (Sometimes I also add a teaspoon of raw cacao nibs)


  1. Place all ingredients in a blender for at least 45 seconds. Serve. Drink. Yum.

Other Ideas - Replace the milk with coconut water. Add mint and avocado. Apples and pineapple taste great too. Change the colour by adding more raspberries (pink) or more greens.
