Jennifer Irvine's California Prune Breakfast Detox Smoothie...

Guest post : 

Jennifer Irvine say's "A fabulous breakfast smoothie that takes only minutes to prepare and is designed to help kick-start your day. This smoothie contains rolled oats – but there’s no need to pre-soak these. We simply blend them and then add everything else separately. What I love about this recipe is that all the best breakfast ingredients are combined in a quick tasty drink. The oats are wholegrains that are slowly digested during the morning; the banana is a source of potassium, which helps support muscle function; the calcium in the milk, together with the vitamin K in the prunes all help maintain normal bone health. Chia seeds are a source of ‘good for you’ unsaturated fats and the fabulous, moreish prunes are high in potassium, so do all sorts from supporting normal functioning nervous system, to maintaining normal blood pressure. And because prunes contribute to normal bowel function*, this smoothie is a great detox. But really all you need to know is that it tastes delicious! [*the beneficial effect is obtained with 100g/day of prunes]"

  • Handful of rolled oats
  • 1 banana
  • Small handful of ready-to-eat California Prunes (about 4)
  • 1 tsp honey
  • Approx 20g live yoghurt
  • Tablespoon of chia seeds
  • Approx 150 ml Skimmed / semi-skimmed milk
  • Approx 150 ml California Prune juice
  • 1 tsp fresh root ginger
  • Couple of lettuce leaves

  1. Firstly, place the oats in the blender and blend until you have a fine powder. Then add all the rest of the ingredients, except for the milk and the prune juice. Add enough milk to go half-way up the glass, and top with enough prune juice to cover the solid ingredients. Blend, adding more liquid to get your preferred consistency.
