RECIPE: Peanut Butter & Banana Protein Blast Smoothie

Ok, I know this probably won’t be to everyone’s liking, but if you’re in the market for something to help build those muscles post-workout and/or fill you up, then this is your tipple.

It’s jam-packed with protein, potassium, and, with the added chia seeds, a large amount of nutrition in a small punch. If you know chia seeds then you’ll know they’re a great source of fibre, protein, good fats (Omega-3s), magnesium, phosphorus, calcium, zinc, and your necessary B vitamins. Chia seeds are pretty much one of the most nutritious foods out there.

Wow. So, here’s the deal:

*1-2 bananas (add more if you want more banana flavour)

*2 heaping tablespoons of organic, preferably (no sugar) peanut butter (add more if you like a more peanut-y taste)

*300 ml of almond or oat milk

*1 tablespoon of chia seeds

*Optional: 2 tablespoons of plain greek yogurt

*Optional: 1 tablespoon of coconut oil

So that’s it. I love my peanut butter, so having this for a post-workout or mid-afternoon drink is perfect. Look out muscles!!!
