Peanut Butter Nana Smoothie

Peanut Butter Banana Smoothie

Yes yes, here I am again talking about breakfast, but I can’t help it! I just love breakfast! I also think it’s hugely important to get a good amount of protein intake in the morning, but if you’re vegetarian (and you don’t like eating chicken for breakfast!) you have to find other ways, and smoothies are amazing for that. This one is a great pre or post workout smoothie or simply good to start you off with heaps of energy. It also means you can whip it up quickly and drink it on your way out if you’re in a rush.

You can use homemade peanut butter by simply putting peanuts in a Vitamix and blending until they make a butter, or you can use store bought but it MUST be a natural, organic butter with no added ingredients, just peanuts. I like Meridian.

Ingredients

250ml almond milk
1 heaped tbsp peanut butter
2 dates
1 banana (sliced and pre-frozen)
1 tsp chia seeds
1 tsp flax seeds

Method

Blend and drink!

Happy, healthy thoughts ๐Ÿ™‚
Love,
Lauren

    Hi Raine,
    I am following your blog and love your recipes. I am pretty much sticking to my Blood Group foods. Instead of the coconut milk, can I use rice milk and and instead of peanut butter can I use macadamia nut butter.

    Have a nice day
    Louise

      Hi Louise ๐Ÿ™‚
      Thanks for following!
      You can definitely replace with things that you prefer or that agree with you – it’s so important to listen to your own body. Just a note on store-bought rice milk – make sure that you are buying a good quality one which doesn’t contain nasty chemical additives. Try to buy organic if you can ๐Ÿ™‚
      Let us know how it turns out!
      Love,

    Hi Raine,

    Thanks for you reply. I’m new at this and loving your blog. Just a pity I didn’t start earlier in life, but better late than never ๐Ÿ™‚ I’ve bought “Natures Choice” Rice milk, is it ok?

    Love

      I havenโ€™t actually checked, but Natureโ€™s Choice is a good range. If you send me a list of ingredients I can help you out ๐Ÿ™‚ you can even whatsapp a pic of the label to my momโ€™s phone – sheโ€™s visiting so Iโ€™ll get it.
