Although it’s a chilly time of year, I find it’s never too cold for a refreshing smoothie as an afternoon pick-me-up. With the New Year upon us and New Years Resolutions in full swing this healthy smoothie won’t hinder your progress but will help you hit your fitness goals in no time. Peanut butter and banana make the perfect creamy combination, the addition of chia seeds adds healthy fats and boost up the fibre count! This recipe can be adapted to suit vegans if you use a plant based milk and protein powder. To have this smoothie for breakfast try adding oats for a low-GI carb source which will help you to get through the day!

What You'll Need

Serves 2
  • 2 frozen bananas, peeled and chopped
  • 100ml milk (can be substituted for dairy free milk)
  • 2 tbsp chia seeds
  • 2 tbsp peanut flour
  • 1 scoop unflavoured protein powder
  • handful of ice

Directions

Preparation Time:

1. Place all ingredients into blender and blend until a smooth texture forms.

2. If the mixture is too thick, add a little more milk and blend again.

3. Top with chia seeds and enjoy straight away!

I am currently a student of Biomedical Science, and I hope to pursue a career in sports nutrition after I graduate. Apart from food, my great passion in life is running — something I do competitively. But it was an injury-related break in my running career that got me into the kitchen for the first time. As a sufferer of celiac disease, I've always had to carefully manage my diet, and being out of action gave me the spare time to explore ways to make gluten-free sweet treats that truly deliver on flavour. I soon discovered that food can be healthy whilst looking and tasting fantastic. Developing homemade recipes is now a huge part of my life. I like to share my sweet treats and baked items with my followers on Instagram. And I have developed quite a large audience through my health blog — on which I share many of my ideas and thoughts on food and exercise. My newfound food career has taken me to places I never thought I'd go. I have worked extensively on recipe ideas with Holland & Barrett, and I also collaborate regularly with Pro Direct. I have a major sweet tooth, so most of my recipes make use of fresh fruit. I'm perhaps best known for my smoothie bowls, which make healthy, energy-boosting breakfasts.
