Nothing beats a delicious smoothie to get you going in the morning…
Serves: 2 | Prep time: 10 minutes
½ cup of all Natural Greek Yogurt
1 medium banana
1 cup of frozen berries ( We suggest blueberries, raspberries and strawberries. Do note; the more blueberries you put in the darker the smoothie will appear)
¼ cup of natural oats
½ teaspoon of vanilla extract
1 cup of milk (Try almond milk, soy milk or coconut milk)
Big handful of chopped pistachios
Few fresh raspberries
Handful of raw oats
1 teaspoon of honey
To create the pistachio rim on your glass, spread a very thin layer of honey on the rim of your glass using a knife. Place the chopped pistachios onto a plate. Make sure the pile is wider than the layer of honey on the glass you are rimming then carefully dip the rim of the glass into the pistachios. Make sure you dip it straight in so the rim is straight and even.
Twist the glass a bit on the plate to ensure that the entire rim is coated and then raise the glass off the plate and shake it gently to get off any loose bits.
Next, to make the smoothie, add all the smoothie ingredients to a blender and blend until smooth. (If the smoothie is too thick, add more milk. If it is too thin, add more fruit and/or ice.)
Pour your smoothie into the pistachio rimmed glass and top with oats on the side of the glass and finish off by adding in some fresh raspberries on top. Enjoy!
