Smoothies are the perfect breakfast to take on the go but many recipes are overcomplicated by containing too many expensive ingredients.
Instead of being put off making these healthy drinks, one food blogger has created a simple alternative.
Sharing his recipe on the website The Big Man’s World, Arman Liew claimed that his “healthy” smoothie makes a “quick and filling breakfast that takes minutes to make”.
Comprised of just three ingredients, he opined that it’s also “easy to customise” and has enough fuel to keep one “energised all morning”.
While the recipe is simple, a blender is a must-have tool to create a smooth drink.

While not everyone will have frozen bananas on hand, this smoothie is better with them, according to Armen.
That said, fresh fruit is just fine for the same unique flavour – but first, it should be chopped up.
Doing this smaller allows for easier blending though those who prefer a chunky smoothie can leave the banana in larger pieces.
Next, add the fruit and the remaining ingredients into the blender and blend until it reaches the desired consistency.
Armen said: “For a thicker, ice cream-like smoothie, blend less. If the smoothie is too thick, add more milk of choice. Top with cinnamon and enjoy.”
While this recipe caters to one portion, it can be duplicated and the leftovers stored in the fridge for up to two days.
They should, however, be re-mixed before enjoying as the ingredients can separate.
To freeze, pour the smoothie into an ice cube tray or shallow container and store it for up to six months. When ready to enjoy, simply re-blend.
