Enjoy this healthy breakfast smoothie taken from RTE's Operation Transformation
125g frozen or fresh Berries
1 fresh or 70g tinned, drained Mandarin
2 Small Carrots
10g Baby Spinach Leaves
60g Greek-style Natural Yoghurt (3% fat)
90ml Almond Milk (6 tbsp)
2 tsp Chai Seeds (10g)
Large handful of Ice Cubes
Put your berries in a blender or liquidiser. If using frozen berries, FSAI (Food Safety Authority of Ireland) recommends to boil them first in a saucepan of boiling water for 1 minute before draining and using.
Add the mandarin to the berries.
Peel and roughly chop the carrots – you’ll need 80g in total - and add to the fruit with the spinach, yoghurt, almond milk and chai seeds.
Add the ice and blend in bursts until smooth.
Pour into a tall glass to serve.
