Cinna-nut-nana Smoothie

OK: So you have absolutely got to try this!! Tasty as heck and because you’ve got legumes and grains hiding in here, it creates another source of protein, without having to eat loads of broccoli (if you’re vegetarian or vegan), eggs or meat!

This smoothie has a really creamy caramel / vanilla flavour and I find it extremely filling so good as a breakfast or lunch on the go. I’ve been trialling the recipe over the last little while and altered the ingredients to find the best combination, so let me know what you think!

  • 250 mls almond milk
  • 1/2 medium size banana
  • 2-3 dates (depending on how sweet you like it)
  • 2 tbsp oats
  • 1 heaped tbsp crunchy peanut butter
  • 6 ice cubes
  • a big sprinkle of cinnamon

I always add the almond milk and banana first and push it into my blender so there’s room to add more goodness on top. I use a ninja bc6a5-15876252_1895225547373394_6145582521032638464_nbullet to mix this as it’s the perfect size for a single serving.

Add the other ingredients push in the ice last.

Blend together until everything is mixed thoroughly and pour into a pretty glass. You can serve with an extra sprinkle of cinnamon and it’s also lovely with a few sesame seeds on top.

Thanks to the oats, this becomes very creamy and delicious and the mixture itself will stay relatively think and a little chunky. Well, that’s the way I like it!!  Enjoy!  M X
