Smoothies are a perfect on-the-go snack any time of day. Blend frozen bananas, peanut butter, soy milk, Greek yoghourt, honey, and a few ice cubes. If this is a morning snack, keep it in a tight-sealing container and throw it in a gym or work bag. For an afternoon boost, prep it the night before and freeze. Remove in the morning, and it will be thawed and ready to enjoy after lunch.
Tip: Add a scoop of your favourite chocolate or vanilla protein for an extra protein boost.
This is also a great way to use up those bananas that have gone a little dark. Just peel them and throw them into a food storage container and place them in the freezer. They’ll be ready next time you want this good-for-you frozen treat.
The ripe bananas have plenty of natural sweetness, and the peanuts are a great source of protein. The texture of the blended frozen bananas is a lot like an ice cream milkshake, so enjoy! It can be your breakfast in a cup or the perfect thing to cool down after a run when, you’re just trying to stay on the cute side of chubby.
Make one for yourself:
3 frozen bananas
1/4 cup peanut butter (smooth or chunky)
1 1/2 cups soy milk (or milk)
1/2 cup 2% greek yoghourt
1 teaspoon honey
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon chopped roasted peanuts (groundnuts)
Throw a few frozen bananas into a blender cup along with the peanut butter, soy milk, yoghourt, honey, and salt. No need to be fussy about it. Blend until smooth. Top each with a teaspoon of chopped peanuts and maybe include a paper straw.
