Who’s up for an energising Breakfast Smoothie? I’ve created this jewel-bright drink packed with Ocean Spray® Wholeberry™ cranberry juice, blitzed up with fresh blackberries, oats and kale – it’s thick, zingy and the most stunning deep purpley pink colour.
It was a very necessary start to my day after being laid out with a bit of sickness at the weekend caused by eating something that had been sat in the fridge for just that little bit too long. Yeeeeeshk. Anyway it’s left me feeling washed out and in need of nourishment. This breakfast smoothie is the perfect antidote. It’s quick and easy to make, so if you’re in a rush trying to get out of the house in the morning, you can just whizz it up in the blender in a matter of seconds.
The humble cranberry is one of the most nutrient-dense fruits. Cranberries are not only a good source of fibre, but also naturally rich in:
- Antioxidants (including Polyphenols)
- Vitamin C
- Proanthocyanidins (PACs)
And to top it all off you’ve got slow release energy from the oats, fibre from the kale and loads of vitamins in the blackberries. In other words this is the Breakfast Smoothie of champions!
A thick, zingy and nutritious breakfast smoothie packed with cranberry juice, fresh blackberries, oats and kale
- 30 g oats
- 100 g blackberries fresh or frozen
- 1 handful kale fresh or frozen
- 600 ml cranberry juice
Put all of the ingredients in the blender and blitz until smooth, serving immediately.
