I like the idea of a smoothie for breakfast, but I don’t know about you, I don’t have time to be faffing around. I either have time for a proper breakfast or I want a grab and go smoothie. There are some great recipes out there in the blogosphere, including one of mine. Most of them are just too much bother for me, with long lists of ingredients many of which seem to only come in kg bags. I’m too risk adverse to commit to a kg of something I’ve never tasted.
This breakfast protein smoothie is super easy, has only 3 ingredients and you don’t need to buy any protein powder or scary ingredients. All you need is a banana, milk and a protein bar. I used a Battle Oats Cranberry and Blueberry bar as its packed with 15g of protein, but feel free to use your favourite. This Battle Oats bar worked really well as it added fruity flavours to the smoothie too without any additional ingredients.
Not that it really needs a recipe, you simply put in your mixer and whizz….
I popped mine in a thermos and drank on my way into work, it kept me full until lunch!
What is your favourite grab and go smoothie?
Do you eat protein bars or powders?
Battle Oats sent me the bars to try and I thought they’d make a great smoothie!
