5:2 diet recipe: Blueberry and Almond Milk Smoothie

September 16th 2014 / Emma Jones / 2 comments


Looking for a healthy but hearty breakfast? This blueberry smoothie from expert nutritionist Vicki Edgson fills the hole if you're on the 5:2

If you’re looking for an alternative to porridge in the mornings, this blueberry and almond milk smoothie recipe is great. Packed-full of healthy ingredients, whiz it up in a matter of minutes and drink it fresh, or stick it in the fridge to make a mousse-like treat for later.

Serves: 1

Calories: 140


1 punnet blueberries, washed and drained

200ml sugar-free almond milk

1 Chia shot (1 tsp)

Juice 1/2 lemon

Cooking instructions:

1. Blend all ingredients until smooth and serve at room temperature.

Tip: If you make this the evening before and leave it in the fridge overnight, the Chia seeds will swell with the blueberries, and you will have a mousse-like pudding for breakfast instead.

The Blueberry smoothy calls for 1/2 juice lemon not clear to me is this a large.medium.small lemon fresh,just squeeze the 1/2 lemon and get what you can in juice? It sounds so good and filling not to mention healthy. I'm a type 2 diabetic, will all this be OK to drink. and sorry I'm not much of a cook ...what is a punnet? is this the little box the berries come in at the groceries?

Had almond milk for the first time last week and loved it, very creamy and filling. How many calories are in this morning shake?
