Breakfast Smoothie – Fit Recipe

Reading Time: minutes

I call these ‘breakfast’ smoothies as that’s simply when I have them – with my toast in the morning. They’re super quick and easy to make so are ideal for the mornings when time is limited. You could have it at any time of the day though. Ideal for before or after the gym as it’s quick and easy to digest too.


I always have a selection of frozen fruit in my freezer along with milk and flavoured yoghurt in my fridge. You can really suit yourself when it comes to flavour combinations. Some of my favourites are listed below. Go with what you have available – or with what’s on special at the supermarket!

Blueberry & Strawberry Breakfast Smoothie Ingredients

½ cup frozen blueberries

½ cup strawberry yoghurt

½ cup skimmed milk


  • Add all the ingredients to the jug of a blender or small cup of a Nutribullet

Breakfast Smoothie Variations

Like I mentioned earlier, you really can make any variation you like. Suit your own taste, preferences and what you have available. The basic recipe is still the same:

Half a cup of frozen fruit, half a cup of yoghurt and half a cup of milk - easy!

You could also substitute the milk for another variety - HiLo cow's milk, almond milk, etc. The macros will change slightly however the general benefits remain the same.

Mango & Raspberry

½ cup frozen mango

½ cup raspberry yoghurt

½ cup skimmed milk

2 tbsp water*

*the mango gives a much thicker texture so add a splash of water to thin the smoothie out

Raspberry & Vanilla Breakfast Smoothie

½ cup frozen raspberries

½ cup vanilla yoghurt

½ cup skimmed milk

Mixed Berry & Coconut

½ cup frozen mixed berries

½ cup coconut yoghurt

½ cup skimmed milk
