One of the most simple breakfast recipes, perfect for a busy routine. I bought my blender before moving to uni for just over £20 from the Kenwood Blend Xtract range. It's a simple, cost effective device but works perfectly and produces the most delicious soups and smoothies! I sometimes even use it for other things such as making batters for pancakes and toad-in-the-hole, so it has many uses!
I love making these dairy-free smoothies as they help but fruit and vitamins into my diet from the moment I wake up. You can also change the recipe up in hundreds of different ways and in doing so can fit even more of your 5 a day into your first meal. I also love this blender as it comes with a portable lid which you can attach to the beaker and take with you to a lecture if running late. These lightweight drinks are also perfect for drinking before a gym session to avoid working out on a heavy stomach and getting a stitch!

I always add Alpro yoghurts as a dairy-free alternative to my smoothies as they're so full of flavour and add a sweet, guilt-free taste to the drink. They also come in a range of flavours like strawberry, mango, coconut and blueberry. You can also mix your smoothie recipes up by adding different flavoured fruit juices and a variety of frozen and fresh fruit. Smoothies are a great way to use up fruit and ensure a healthy and refreshing start to your day.
