It’s that time again! Time for a new breakfast smoothie – one with plenty of berries to keep you feeling like an Active Annie throughout your day.


What you’ll need:

  • 1 banana
  • ½ cup of raw rolled oats
  • 1 handful of fresh blueberries
  • 1 handful of blackberries
  • 1 handful of frozen berries
  • 2 teaspoons peanut butter
  • a drizzle of honey
  • table spoon of chia seeds
  • table spoon of sunflower seeds
  • 1 cup of ice water
  • a sprinkle of granola (optional)


What you’ll need to do:

Mix all of the above ingredients in a blender/Nutribullet until light and fluffy, but for the love of all the Happy Harriets and a clean kitchen, don’t forget to put the lid on properly!


Once everything has been mixed to your hearts content, pour into a glass of sorts, sprinkle with some granola and enjoy with a cuppa Joe.

Good morning all you Fabulous Franny’s!

It’s that time of the week again – The morning of all Mornings – M.O.N.D.A.Y!

Why not have an “Oh so fabulous” start to your week and try out my very own Marvelous Myrtle Smoothie recipe. It’s pretty basic, easy to make and of course allows you to indulge in some guilt free deliciousness, without those naughty calories. I’ve added a “mighty morning” mug of hot water, lemon slices and ginger on the side to get the metabolism jiving after an eventful weekend.


  • 1 ripe banana
  • ½ a cup of raw rolled oats
  • ½ tablespoon of PEANUT BUTTER (Yes, my fave – hence the CAPS)
  • A dash of honey
  • A splash of water or milk/ almond milk
  • A sprinkle of cinnamon

The above ingredients are fit to serve one Hungry Hannah.

Cooking steps:

Basically, if you’re not the next Jamie Oliver, DON’T WORRY, you won’t go hungry, I promise! All you need to do is add all the above ingredients and blend in a smoothie blender, but for the love of a clean kitchen and all the Happy Harriet’s out there, DON’T forget to put on the lid!

Blend for about a minute or so until light and fluffy, pour into a glass of sorts and enjoy with a warm mug of my new found ginger & lemon morning drink on the side.

How fabulous that this is basically on the fat free side of life, so easy to make and is a power smoothie. I totally thought about going back for seconds, but that would’ve made me a Greedy Gretel and let’s face it, I’m all about having one arse at the moment, and not two.

Have a mighty Monday, all you Marvellous Myrtles.
