This fruity smoothie is ideal for a last-minute breakfast on the go. With healthy fats and a scoop of protein powder, this is way better for you than any bowl of boxed cereal.
Try not to get into the habit of having smoothies every day, though. As I always say, real food wins over dust every time.
125g sliced mango
2 tbsp almond or cashew
handful of ice cubes
handful of raspberries
2 tbsp full-fat Greek yoghurt
1 scoop (30g) vanilla or

Warning! Don’t go nuts with your nuts. While they are a great source of protein, fibre and essential fats, nuts also contain lots of calories.
It’s very easy to crack open a 200g bag and finish the lot without feeling full. But remember every gram of fat contains 9 kcal, so overeating nuts will not help with your fat loss.
