Peach and raspberry smoothie

HOW TO In a blender, combine one small pot of low-fat peach yoghurt, 60ml low-fat milk, 125g crushed canned pineapple, two tbsp dried coconut, a handful of plain porridge oats and 180g frozen raspberries. Blend until smooth.

HOW COME A 2008 Australian study reported that long-distance runners who take a strain of the probiotic lactobacillus (found in live yoghurt) every day suffer less severe bouts of respiratory illness. Oats can also help cut your risk of heart disease and type 2 diabetes, while raspberries are rich in quercetin which may help increase exercise endurance.
