If you’re anything like me then the word “protein” scares you, or at least for me, it used to…. since turning my diet and fitness regime around at the start of this year and doing my research I have realised how much it can support you, long gone the old wives tales about it making you gain weight and making women really bulky, if used correctly and in moderation it does wonders for supporting muscle growth and keeping you fit and healthy, so to comfort everyones fears and gag reflex (which comes with drinking that dreaded milkshake for yet another morning), I’ve teamed up with USN
and put together a super quick and easy pre-workout breakfast which changes the game while still giving you all that goodness and support, plus if you have a sweet tooth you will ~love~ this!
:YOU WILL NEED:
FOR THE SMOOTHIE
. 1 Banana
. 1 Beetroot
. 100g Frozen Berries
. 1 TSP Nut Butter
. 1 Cup of Milk (Semi Skimmed, Almond, Oat Whichever you fancy)
:FOR THE TOPPING:
(The Choice is yours but I used)
. Toasted Coconut Shavings
. Whole Almonds
. Chia Seeds
. Cacao Nibs
Place all smoothie ingredients into a food processor or hand blender and mix until combined, you should have a thick, creamy mixture, if it’s too runny add a bit more banana.
2. Pour your mixture into your bowl (there’s enough here for two, or an afternoon snack) sprinkle with your favourite toppings and serve.
Yep….it’s that easy and it tastes amazing (if I do say so myself)!!
If you’re bored of drinking milkshakes and want to try something different why not give this a go?
Be sure to let me know how you get on if you do and I’d love to see your photos too.
