5 Christmas breakfasts
The calorie saver
Pack as much nutrition as you can into your first meal on Christmas morning with a fruit smoothie. Just about any of the soft fruits will do, so choose your favourites.
Bananas are the classic to start with (also, the quickest and easiest to prepare), then add a splash of fruit juice and a spoonful of natural yoghurt to give it its creamy texture. Mango, papaya, peaches and nectarines blend beautifully and can be mixed and matched. Throw in a few strawberries for extra colour and flavour.
Tip: You can freeze strawberries at the end of the summer and use them in smoothies later in the year.
