How a Blender Inspired me to Be Healthy

I am notorious for missing out on breakfast. I am always in hurry, don't have time to stop, sit down and eat and hate running out the door carrying a piece of soggy toast. This all changed recently when I was given a blender as a present. Suddenly with a bit of experimentation I have found the perfect solution for my busy lifestyle. A 'Bamangocot Smoothie'.

What's a Bamangocot smoothie? Well it's a combination of mango, banana and apricot blended together with yoghurt and oat bran to create a delicious, healthy, quick breakfast. Bamangocot smoothies are delicious, easily transportable and because they are so good for me I find I have more energy, don't crave a sugar or carb hit at 11am and I am even losing weight.

I think I have stumbled upon the perfect solution for my busy lifestyle, thanks to my new favourite kitchen accessory, my blender ;-).

Quick and Easy Breakfast Smoothie

Prep time: 2 min
Ready in: 2 min
Yields: The ingredients listed makes one smoothie.

Ingredients

  • 1 Banana, Make sure your banana is ripe
  • 2 Canned Mango Cheeks, Fresh is better, but takes more time and is 3x the cost.
  • 3 Dried Apricots, Add a natural sweetness
  • 2 Tablespoons Oat Bran, Add fibre to your diet.
  • 1/3 Glass 100% Juice, Can use fresh squeezed if available.
  • 4 Tablespoons Low Fat Flavoured Probiotic Yoghurt, Great for your inner health.
  • 1 Tray Ice Cubes, About 12 ice cubes.

How to Make the Perfect Breakfast Blender Smoothie

  1. Put the juice, fruit and bran in the blender. Blend these ingredients together first.
  2. With the blender on low, add the yoghurt and then the ice cubes 1 at time. This will make sure all the ice gets blended and you have a very 'smooth' smoothie.
  3. In a hurry? Chuck the lot in and blend for 30 seconds. Sometimes life is short and it's better to have a smoothie with a few bits of ice in it than skip one altogether. The smoothie will still score 6/5 on the 5 scale yumometer!
