Oat Berry Smoothie
220 calories per portion
Serves 1
Oats are full of soluble fiber and release energy slowly to set you up for the day (use rolled oats rather than the more finely milled varieties).

5 ounces skim milk
3.5 ounces low-fat Greek yogurt
3 tablespoons rolled oats
1.7 ounces raspberries or blueberries

Put all ingredients in a blender and blitz. Alternatively, leave out the berries (-25 calories) and try the oat base with:

• Chopped dates (+46 calories for two) and apricots (+24 calories for three halves of dried fruit)
• Honey (+22 calories per teaspoon) and 1 tablespoon fresh blackberries (+15 calories)
• Chopped pear (+103 calories per medium pear) and nutmeg
• Apple (+72 calories per medium apple), cinnamon, and vanilla extract
• Banana (+105 calories) and honey (+22 calories per teaspoon)

Another way to add sweetness is to use lactose-free cow’s milk, which is slightly sweeter on the palate than regular milk. Or try almond milk for a nondairy alternative.
