Let me explain. It was a Friday in early November and I was still full from a Thai/Filipino cheat meat I’d had the night before at my all time favourite restaurant, Pig and Khao. I didn’t feel like eating breakfast but I knew I needed fuel for the day – hence the liquid breakfast.
We had a few pears lying around that I’d used to decorate our table at a recent dinner party we’d hosted. Using these as a base, I decided to make a smoothie, adding 1/2 cup of oats to give me an extra energy boost. Delicious! You can add 1/4 cup of oats instead for a lighter smoothie.
