I have got into smoothies again, especially since I usually do a gymnastics class early in the morning. I need to eat before it but need to be careful what I have as turning myself upside down is hard enough without a full tummy interfering. These really work for me, they give me the energy to get through the class and feel good. It is also a great option when you don’t have a lot of time. It provides delicious flavour, a great boost of vitamins and minerals and the protein powder is an easy way to start the day well.
150gr each of raspberries and blueberries
2 scoops of plain flavour protein powder – you could actually use most flavours apart from the chocolate (Which I think is yuck anyway!)
1 banana cut in half lengthways and each length cut in half
A handful of seeds and soaked rolled oats
2 fl oz of water or almond milk
Reserve a few berries for the top of your smoothie
Stick the raspberries, blueberries and protein powder with 2 fl oz liquid into a blender and blitz till smooth
Pour into 2 serving bowls
Place 2 pieces of banana into each
Sprinkle over the seeds and oats and the reserved fruit – admire how pretty it looks
Enjoy and power through the rest of your day!
