Looking for a quick and simple breakfast option? Then try our Breakfast Berry Smoothie for the ultimate start to your day!
We’re big fans of smoothies over at Intolerant Gourmand HQ!
Almost every morning, our nutribullet will be on the go, blitzing up an array of fruits to create delicious and creamy smoothies and smoothie bowls.
If the children, and Callum in particular, is needing a boost of nutrients, it’s the perfect way to get more into them as smoothies made in this way are packed full of nutrients and vitamins to enhance your diet.
Their vibrant and enviting colour is a good way of enticing little ones to try them as well!
It’s also a great option when trying to boost your fruit intake and hit the 5-a-day target, you can’t beat a delicious smoothie!
The added bonus, certainly from my perspective as a busy mum who’s always on the go - smoothies are a really quick and simple breakfast option! In just 5 minutes, and that's from prep to eating/ drinking, you simply blitz and take with you!
What’s not to love!?

Pears are great for reducing thickness, and nectarines too! x
If they don't like them as smoothies, you could always make them a little thicker and turn them into smoothie bowls (like really thick yoghurt) and get them to sprinkle their own things on top - chopped up fruit, cacao nibs, if ok with nuts then a sprinkle of ground almond/ walnut, flaxseed, chia seed, drizzle with honey etc.
Or freeze into ice cream! :) x
