General info

Serves: 1
Preparation Time: 5 minutes


This is the perfect mood-boosting smoothie. Bananas are a good source of tryptophan, an amino acid that our bodies convert to serotonin – our mood-boosting neurotransmitter. A handful of oats and milk or almond milk give a further mood-lifting tryptophan boost.

Adding a handful of greens to provide plenty of B vitamins, especially folate, important for production of neurotransmitters to keep us feeling happy.

A dash of cinnamon helps stabilise blood sugar – important for balancing mood, and the addition of pineapple provides anti-inflammatory bromelain. Reduce the inflammation in your body and you feel better – everything will function better.
