Summer pudding is a traditional British dessert made up of bread, soaked in the juice of summer berries. I’ve had the idea to make it into a smoothie flavour for a while now and the result is SO delicious!
Don’t worry though – there is no bread in this smoothie. Instead, I’ve used oats and flaxseed to give that bread-y taste with the added nutritional benefits.
So now I have the flavour of this classic summer dessert in the form of a delicious, healthy breakfast! It’s high in protein, omega 3 and fibre, making it the perfect start to the day.
And not only does this smoothie taste good and is good for you but it looks good too! Look at the pretty colour… so vibrant and uplifting.
So much summer berry goodness!
