There are some foods which prevent us from sleeping well and others which aid us. Eating a range of sleep-inducing foods throughout the day can be hugely beneficial to getting a better night’s sleep.

This smoothie, a recipe developed in collaboration with All Around Health, is packed with foods which will contribute towards enhancing your sleep.

You can make the smoothie immediately, but I recommend soaking the oats overnight (or at least for a few hours) in the milk for a smoother texture and less raw oat flavour.

Serves 2

Ingredients Equipment to have ready
60g oats Chopping board
300ml almond milk (or milk of your choice) Sharp knife
1 banana, peeled and cut into thin rings Blender or smoothie maker
1 kiwi, peeled and cubed Measuring jug
130g raspberries (I use frozen) Small mixing bowl
2 tbsp cherry active (optional)


  1. Start by putting the oats and milk in a small mixing bowl, stirring, covering and leaving overnight in the fridge.
  2. When you’re ready to make the smoothie, put all the ingredients in a blender or smoothie maker and blitz until smooth.
