There’s nothing I love more than shoving a load of tasty ingredients into my NutriBullet and blending myself a thick smoothie for breakfast. Some people get creative with their flavour choices, but oh no, not me, I know what I like and I stick to it.
This recipe is simple, quick and easy to prepare, not to mention delicious and actually keeps you full until your next meal. Breakfast smoothies are ideal for anyone who values sleep over ‘getting ready for work‘ time. Jump straight out of bed and have a nutritious breakfast within seconds!
The key to making smoothies quick and easy, is to prepare the main ingredients in advance. For example, for anything that needs freezing, I’ll shove them in freezer bags as soon as I bring my shopping home and then I never have to think about it again. You could also fill freezer bags with a whole load of different fruit combinations and have a lucky dip smoothie for breakfast.
This recipe is a pretty standard, breakfast smoothie recipe, perfect for those like me that don’t like to fuss and just enjoy the classics!
Green Banana and Peanut Butter Breakfast Smoothie
1x Frozen Banana
20g Smooth Peanut Butter
100g Greek Yogurt
30g Rolled Oats
200ml of Milk (I use either Almond Milk or Soy Milk)
Handful of Spinach
1) Pre-freeze the bananas in freezer bags.
2) Chuck everything in a blender and be on your way. Simple.
I like to put mine in a mason jar so I can take it to work with me. I found that if I had breakfast before I left the house, I would be ravenous by about 10:30am, so now I like to take my breakfast with me, so I can eat a little bit later and not want to snack on all the yummy office food before lunch. You can substitute the peanut butter for other fruits, such as strawberries or mango, just make sure you freeze them to make things quicker and give you a thicker smoothie!
