Berries are a great source of antioxidants (specifically anthocyanins), fibre as well as being low in kilojoules. This is a nutrient dense food, as opposed to energy dense – filling up on these will promote health, not weight gain.
- 300g frozen berries (blueberries, strawberries or mixed berries)
- 100g low fat natural or Greek yoghurt
- 2 tsp honey OR 1/2 frozen banana
- 1 Tb chopped mint (optional)
Place all ingredients in a food processor and blend until creamy. Serve immediately. Also works great with other frozen fruits or with a little muesli, nuts and extra fruit for breakfast! Serves 2-3.
There are plenty of variations on this idea – you could try banana with raw cacao & cinnamon, mango and mint, banana and turmeric…
