Saintly Tuesdays - Creamy Mixed Berry & Oat Super Smoothie

I am always, always on the lookout for super-fast breakfast ideas that are as delicious as they are nutritious.

This Creamy Mixed Berry & Oat Super Smoothie is not only unbelievably fast to whip up (all you need is a food processor and, ping!, breakfast is served in less than 2 minutes), but also incredibly healthy and filling.

Packed with banana, mixed berries and protein-boosting Total Greek yoghurt, this is wonderfully creamy and fruity. However, the added extras of coconut oil (come on, you all know how much I love this superfood by now) my skin saviour food Chia, and nutritious oats also make this breakfast treat a fantastic energy booster too.

I absolutely love homemade breakfast smoothies as they're a great way of starting the day on the right foot. How do you like your breakfast smoothie served up? Share your recipes!
