Recipe type: Breakfast or Dessert

Total time: 
Serves: 2
A creamy milkshake made with good-for-you ingredients and a fresh fruit swirl, perfect for breakfast, a mid-morning snack or a healthy dessert. I keep a stash of frozen banana coins on hand for smoothies, milkshakes and instant ice cream but if you don't, make sure to freeze the banana several hours before.
  • 2 tbsp rolled oats
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds
  • 375ml milk (I use almond but cow's milk or another nut/plant milk will also work well)
  • 2 medium bananas, peeled, sliced into coins and frozen
  • 2 heaped tbsp smooth natural peanut butter
  • ½ tsp vanilla powder
  • ½ tsp ground cinnamon
  • small punnet of raspberries (fresh or defrosted from frozen is fine), about 20
  1. In a small bowl, combine the oats, chia seeds and 75ml milk. Stir then refrigerate for 20 minutes or until the oats are softened and the chia seeds are plump with milk.
  2. In a high speed blender combine the oat and chia mixture with all the remaining ingredients and blitz until smooth and creamy.
  3. In a small bowl, mash the raspberries with the back of a fork then divide between two glasses. Carefully pour the smoothie over the raspberries and serve.
  4. The raspberry puree should travel up a wide straw - use to swirl into the milkshake as you drink for alternating mouthfuls of creamy sweetness and sharper fruit.
