This is a fantastic way to start the day: the protein from the yoghurt will kick start your metabolism, the banana will keep you full for a couple of hours and the ginger and lemon will work as a detox.

Banana, honey and ginger breakfast smoothie

Serves 2


Small knob of fresh ginger (peeled)

2 tbsp honey

4 tbsp natural yoghurt

1 medium ripe banana

Juice of 4 oranges

Juice of ½ lemon


Finely grate the ginger into the bowl of the blender. It's up to your taste how much you use. If you don't have fresh ginger, you can also replace it with a little dried ground ginger.

Add the remaining ingredients and whizz up until completely blended.

Drink soon after making to make the most of all the vitamins.

i love making banana smoothies like this one with nonfat greek yogurt - makes it a bit thicker and higher in protein. also great to add some chopped walnuts!
