This month I am focusing on E for Energy. So, with that in mind, this delicious smoothie is packed full of vibrant berries as they have a rich content of anthocyanins which helps to slow down the rate carbs are released into the body. They combine perfectly with the slow releasing energy of oats. Out of season you can use frozen berries, which are also a way of making the smoothie nice and cold, without having to use ice. Another tip to make the smoothie colder is to peel and cut up the banana the night before and keep it in the freezer until the next morning.
