Prep: 5 minutes | Cook: 5 minutes | Serves: 2 people
1 cup Bulgarian yoghurt
1 cup frozen strawberries
2 small bananas – chopped
1 spoon of sugar, honey, xylitol or any sweetener
Optional: 1 cup of Muesli with raisins and nuts.
Add yoghurt, strawberries and bananas into a blender and blend until smooth. Pour into a glass or bowl and add muesli on top.
All fruits can be substituted by any of your choice. Even though bananas are low in iron, they make an awesome base for a smoothie. Blueberries and other berries such as, strawberries, blackberries and cranberries act as an active iron absorber, as it is a good source of vitamin C.
All fruits can be cut into pieces and frozen beforehand. Any frozen fruit also adds a nice cold thicker texture to a smoothie, Other fruits high in iron are figs, prunes, and dates. To add extra iron to your breakfast smoothie, add some muesli or granola with raisins and nuts.
