We can’t even begin to tell you how tasty this is on a morning. If you’re worried about what is essentially cold porridge not being your thing, don’t be.
This one’s tried and tested by Holland & Barrett and has had great reviews. Get your hit of filling chia seeds to keep hunger pangs at bay.
75g full fat yoghurt

Throw your banana, almond milk and yogurt into a blender and blend until the consistency is smooth.
Pour the mixture into bowls (or glasses like ours).
Stir in all your oats.

Top with blueberries, raspberries and finally, supercharge with a sprinkling of chia seeds for a hit of extra goodness.

"Almond milk is a non-dairy milk alternative that has become increasingly popular in recent years. It is made from ground almonds and water and is a great source of nutrients and health benefits.
Some of the ways in which consuming almond milk can benefit overall health and support muscles and joints include:
These nutrients are important for maintaining healthy bones and joints, and for overall health. Almond milk contains anti-inflammatory compounds that can help reduce inflammation in the body.
Chronic inflammation can contribute to a variety of health problems, including joint pain and arthritis. Consuming almond milk regularly can help reduce inflammation and alleviate joint pain.
It is a great dairy-free alternative to milk, making it a good choice for those who are lactose intolerant or have a dairy allergy. It is also vegan-friendly and can be used in a variety of recipes.
Almond milk is versatile and can be used in a variety of recipes, including smoothies, oatmeal, and baking. It can also be flavoured and sweetened to taste, making it a delicious and healthy alternative to dairy milk."
"Chia seeds are a tiny but mighty superfood that is packed with nutrients and health benefits. They are an excellent source of fibre, protein, and healthy fats, making them a great addition to a healthy diet. In terms of muscle, bone, and joint health, chia seeds are particularly beneficial due to their high levels of calcium & magnesium.
These minerals are essential for healthy bones and muscles and help support muscle and nerve function. Chia seeds are also a good source of plant-based protein, which is important for maintaining and building strong muscles.
They are also a good source of antioxidants, which help protect the body against cell damage!"
"Oats are a popular and nutritious whole grain that is packed with health benefits. They are an excellent source of fibre making them a great addition to a healthy diet. The complex carbohydrates make them slower to digest providing energy over a longer period of time!
Oats are also a good source of protein, which is important for maintaining and building strong muscles.
Whether enjoyed as oatmeal, granola or baked into goods, oats are a nutritious and delicious way to support overall health!"
