We used Myfitnesspal, one of the best weight-loss apps for calorie counting, to get a rough nutritional breakdown for this breakfast smoothie, which comes in at around 419 calories. It provides 87g carbohydrates, 15g protein, 8g fibre and 3g fat.

Probiotic yogurt

Low-fat probiotic yogurt will provide the healthy bacteria your digestive tract needs to function at its best.


The strawberries in this recipe contain almost 100% of your daily vitamin C requirements.


Bananas are rich in potassium, which helps to maintain fluid and electrolyte balance in the body’s cells.

Orange juice

This quickly replenishes glucose stocks needed after a fast – which you normally do when you’re asleep – thanks to a high GI rating.


Oats release energy slowly, meaning muesli will stave off any mid-morning hunger pangs, and you’ll also get plenty of protein and goodness from the nuts and seeds.
