strawberry, blueberry and banana smoothie

These fruit smoothies are the perfect solution if you are looking for a breakfast on the go.

As part of my series of recipes which Kellogg’s asked me to develop using their limited edition and new Special K Oats & Honey variant, I thought a smoothie was a fabulous option. I frequently make them and find they are an easy way to get protein and fruit into your diet in a very delicious way. In these recipes I have used fat-free yoghurt and milk in order to make this even more super healthy, but you could substitute with your favourite low-fat variety. By adding the cereal to the mix, you get a more substantial smoothie that will serve as a meal replacement.

Using frozen fruit gives the smoothie a lovely frozen feel and thicker texture. I often freeze my fruit specifically for smoothies, even banana’s.

This is a good tip if you have a lot of fruit left over.

strawberries and blueberries

Banana smoothie:

  • 1 banana (about 1/2 a cup mashed)
  • 1/2 cup yoghurt
  • 1/4 cup Special K Oats & Honey cereal
  • 3/4 cup skim milk

Berry smoothie:

  •  1/2 a cup of strawberries and / or raspberries of both (frozen of fresh)
  • 1/2 cup yoghurt
  • 1/4 cup Special K Oats & Honey cereal
  • 3/4 cup skim milk

Blueberry smoothie:

  •  1/2 a cup blueberries (frozen of fresh)
  • 1/2 cup yoghurt
  • 1/4 cup Special K Oats & Honey cereal
  • 3/4 cup skim milk

Place all the ingredients for a particular smoothie into a food processor and blend until smooth. I use an immersion hand-held stick blender in a tall container and this works very well too. Add a tablespoon of honey if you desire a bit more sweetness.

    Hi, these sound and look delicious I would definitely try them. How many calories does each smoothie have.

    Hi Yolanda

    Unfortunately I do not know the total calorie count on these as I am not a food scientist / technologist. If you have a calorie book – break down the ingredients, work out their individual count and then add them together.

  3. HI Sam, I am currently on the Weigh-less plan and I made your smoothie and it was define! It is my breakfast and snack included and I felt very satisfied and it was DELICIOUS!
