Berry and Granola Smoothie (serves 4)

Smoothies are always a great choice for a quick and healthy breakfast, but they don’t always satisfy your hunger until lunchtime. How do you make your smoothie stick to your bones? Blend in some granola! If you have a good blender, your kids will hardly notice that they’re drinking up fibre and essential fatty acids along with their anti-oxidants and vitamin C.

Start with a base of 2 cups of plain or vanilla yogurt and 2 cups of milk. Add 3 cups fresh or frozen berries and 1 cup of granola and blend until smooth. When you are making or buying your granola, try to find a blend with lots of nuts and seeds and very few added sugars to ensure your smoothie is both filling and healthy.
