I love this smoothie! It keeps me satisfied, fuelled and focused until lunch and beyond, as it’s packed with healthy fats, fibre and quality protein.
1 frozen banana
Handful of baby spinach
1 tbsp vanilla protein powder
1 tsp ground cinnamon
600g coconut milk
Here's what you do...
1. Blitz all ingredients in your food processor, blender or Thermomix.
2. Pour into 2 glasses.
3. Top with nuts, seeds, muesli to coconut if you wish.
I prefer the Coco Quench brand of coconut milk best as it's dairy free and free from preservatives or added sugar - simply containing filtered water, coconut milk, brown rice and sea salt. In Australia you can usually find this brand with the UHT milks in the supermarket, or at most health food stores. If this brand isn't available where you live, then choose one with a similarly simple and short ingredient list.
I use plant-based protein powders as I can’t tolerate whey. Whichever type you choose, be sure it’s one made with real ingredients and no synthetics (unlike the ones generally sold for body building and found in sports nutrition/supplement type stores). I personally have used and like the ones by Prana On, Amazonia Raw and Nutra Organics, but there are plenty of great wholefood options out there.
Hey, if you liked this recipe then don't be shy... share the love! Hit like on the way through or share with a friend so we can spread the whole-food word together. Thank you. Kirsty x
