Ginger and Coconut Wake Me Up Smoothie

As the mornings are getting darker and colder I’ve been in search of things to add to my smoothies to give them a big of a punch to wake me up.
This morning you could almost hear the lightbulb ding above my head as I remembered that I had root ginger in the fridge!

This recipe also uses the cheapest of the cheap frozen fruit salad from tesco, it makes for a bland smoothie if used on its own, but with adding coconut and ginger it gives a nice fruity edge.

1 serving – approx 520 calories

  • 1 banana
  • 30g rolled oats
  • 150g frozen fruit salad mix (mine had grapes, melon, apple and orange)
  • 50g┬ácoconut milk
  • 10g root ginger – diced
  • 5g light muscovado sugar
  • 250ml – unsweeted soya milk

Blitz together and enjoy as it shakes the morning cobwebs out!
