I've started ditching my trusted bagel for a fruit milkshake.

Take a shed load of soft fruit (banana, strawberries, raspberries etc); add a glass of milk; whiz in blender until mixed; add a handful of oats; whiz again; enjoy.

Even hubby likes it and has started getting up whilst I'm out for my morning run and having it ready for when I get back!

Not sure if it's really enough for brekkie as I'm pretty hungry by midday, but I'm sure it's all good for me.

ye, that does sound good, might do something like that over the weekend. One option I guess is to make it the night before and then put it in the fridge.

O.

sounds yummy, it'd take too much time for me though.

Maybe if you put in some more oats it would keep you going longer?
Time consuming? Seriously?!

You're looking at 2 minutes max!!!

Now porridge, on the other hand, is a time consuming breakfast for one who is always in a rush!!

Blueberries are nice in a smoothie too - but I like to add ice-cream :)

Pain is washing up the blender - thats what puts me off!!

Rinse with hot water, then whiz with hot water and washing up liquid for 30 seconds, then rinse out soap. Done in a couple of minutes.

OK - fair enough... I was thinking of the blades at the bottom with the washing up mop - but just using liquid sounds much easier!!

:) happy now!

Get yourself down to your local Decathlon store and get some Energy Bars. Oats, honey and seeds and there brilliant especially if you run in a morning.

I used to do almost exactly that, but with yoghurt and just a little bit of milk to make it runny enough to drink. Not sure whether the yoghurt makes any difference, or whether I maybe just added more oats, but it used to keep me going till lunchtime.

I haven't made it for ages, but you've inspired me to start making it again, at least on some days.

It's such an easy way to get about 2 of your 5-a-day as well :)

Well I'm still on the same brekkie, although I'm not managing it every day (bit like my running really).

Hubby has lost interest but drinks it when I make it - or spoons it from the glass depending on how much oats I put in! Current favourite is strawberry and banana, although the blackberries went down a treat the other day.

If I make one of those and leave it over night it separates :confused:

Who thought one could get a smoothie wrong?!
