Energising Smoothie

This is my super fast smoothie that is perfect for breakfast on the run, its also great as a pre or post workout refuel, or just to fill that afternoon slump. The key to always being able to whip up a smoothie is to have fruit portions in your freezer, especially bananas which are a great base for any smoothie and make them really thick and creamy. I tend to freeze my bananas in halves when they are just about to turn too ripe. The almond butter adds protein which is great if you are working out but also helps to thicken the texture. The cacao nibs are optional but add nice crunch.

Ingredients:

1/2 cup almond milk (or other milk of choice)
1 small frozen banana
2 tsp coconut almond butter (or other nut butter)
tsp maca
1 date
tsp coconut oil
(optional – tsp cacao nibs)

What to do…

Simply add all the ingredients to your blender and pulse until thoroughly combined and smooth. Add extra cacao nibs or granola to the top if you are wanting to make it into more of a meal.

Enjoy your energising smoothie.
