Breakfast Smoothy - Raspberries and Yoghurt

Breakfast Smoothy - Raspberries and Yoghurt

Introduction

My breakfast staple. I have this (varying the berries) almost every day of the week in summer. Never fails to wake me up. Berries generally are fibre rich but for and additional fibre kick you can add a tablespoonful of bran. My breakfast staple. I have this (varying the berries) almost every day of the week in summer.

Number of Servings: 1

Ingredients

    125 g raspberries (fresh or frozen)
    250 g (1 cup) plain 2% yogurt
    2 tbsp dark brown sugar

Directions

Place all ingredients in the blender and blend until smooth as you want it (15-20 seconds for frozen fruit with a hand-held blender)

SERVING SUGGESTIONS
1. For additional fibre and omega-3s, lately I have been adding 2 tbsp of flaxmeal (I track it separately form the recipe) instead of the bran and I really love it that way. Additional fibre may be especially desired if you try other berries as raspberries are the most fibre rich in the lot. Because I am tracking fibre I also have saved this recipe with other fruit and the recipes are shared.

2. For less fat you can use fat free yoghurt. That will also kick the protein up a notch.

3. You can try combinations of fruit and adding herbs and spices to this. I've found that strawberries work great with a couple of mint leaves for instance.

4. I do prefer frozen to fresh fruit.

  • Love it! It's so refreshing! However, I would substitute the dark brown sugar to a half a cup of raisins to a cupful, depending on the amount of yogurt and raspberries you put in. This increases your fibre intake as much as 20% more plus you're getting natural sugar into your system. - 8/2/11
