Hi everyone!

So, we all know that the best way to start the day is with a proper breakfast.

Brekkie gives us a kick start in the morning, and depending on what we select as our fuel of choice, our bodies a hit of nutrition too.

Being a firefighter, there isn’t always the guaranteed time to sit down to a good breakfast and so a smoothie is always a great option for on the go.

Here’s one of our smoothie recipes to try for yourself.  All you need is a little bit of prep that can be done whilst you are sleeping….and a blender.


1/2 cup 100% wholegrain rolled oats soaked in coconut milk overnight

1/2 pint milk, preferably full-fat but try oat milk or nut milk if you’d rather or for a vegan option

2 tablespoons plain Greek yogurt (or coconut yogurt to go vegan)

3 strawberries

Some blackberries

I medium banana fresh or frozen

Chia seeds

Pop all the ingredients into a blender and whizz up until it’s smooth.  Pour into a glass or a container if you want breakfast on the go.

Drink and enjoy!
