Smoothies and shakes can be a super tasty way of getting the right balance of carbs to protein either before and after a work-out.

I’ve been using a delicious 100% natural & vegan protein from Sativa, which is a blend of pea, soy, hemp and brown rice protein.

Ingredients

  • 1 scoop protein powder*
  • 1/2 frozen banana**
  • 1 cup (~6 x) strawberries
  • 2 tbsp (15g) oat flour***
  • 2 tbsp (30g) fat-free Greek yog
  • 200ml unsweetened almond milk
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract (optional)

*I use Sativa strawberry & banana High Pro but you could also use Maxitone’s banana protein powder as used in my banana protein bar recipe or MyProtein’s Vanilla Whey Protein Powder.

**Peel & halve the banana before freezing over-night.

***To make oat flour simply blend some oats in your blender or you can use Ultra Fine Scottish Oats (Ground Oats).

Method

Step 1

Put all of the ingredients into your blender*

Step 2

Step 3

Optional – Serve with strawberry ice-cubes!

Fruity Ice cubes

*I always get asked what blender I have I now own a Waring Blender in red.. it’s fantastic and great if you make smoothies several times a week (it’s heavy duty!). Check out Amazon for more options!

UPDATE: Thank you to everyone who sends me pictures of my recipes on Twitter & Facebook - here are a selection!!

    Absolutely delicious, filling, thick and naturally sweet. I added some blueberries and a dash of agave syrup rather than vanilla. Thoroughly recommend this as an alternative to your oats for breakfast :) thanks Nic x
