I’m not one to eat breakfast on the run. I subscribe to the adage: if you have to work before you eat breakfast, eat breakfast before you work. I’m there every single morning of the year, with my gluten-free, homemade muesli, fresh fruit and live yoghurt, plus Rooibos tea with soya milk. Buy hey, if you are pushed for time in the morning, then you could do worse than these gourmet smoothies. I was tempted just by the names and the ingredients lists. I’ve tried 2 of the 3 flavours and they’re really delicious, unusual, more filling than your average smoothies (containing oats) and are as British as they can be. Heartwarmer do three flavours: (1) blackcurrant, oat and spice; (2) raspberry, oat and spice and (3) chai spice, oat and ginger (which is mostly pear). I was worried the ginger one would be too gingery but no, it’s perfect. Also, my daughters wolfed them down too.
I am told they have a shelf life of 6 months and come in infinitely recyclable glass bottles. No added sugar or artificial ingredients, they’re gluten-free and dairy-free, and suitable for vegetarians, vegans and coeliacs. And of course, they don’t have to be just for breakfast. My kids would drink them all day, every day, in place of water, if I’d let them.
