Pre-workout Banana Smoothie

During the week I train at around 6am – absolutely no time to have breakfast and digest. But on the weekends, I have a little lay in and manage to squeeze in a light breakfast before I start training.

I usually leave it about an hour or so before I start training (otherwise you’ll spend most of the time hugging a ceramic bowl!).

My number one go to recipe for a quick and light breakfast in the morning is a…

Banana & almond butter smoothie – serves one

Ingredients:

  • 1 medium banana
  • 2/300 ml of almond milk
  • 1 large spoonful of almond butter
  • 2 spoons of chia seeds (not too much, this can cause the shake to become gloopy)
  • Udo’s Oil (optional)
  • Ice cubes

Directions:

  • Blend everything together and you are done!
  • Oh, and then wash up 🙂

It has the perfect balance of slow release sugar, metabolising fats and high protein to get your workout started in the right way!

I would usually follow this up with a plain Good Hemp protein shake with coconut water directly after I’ve finished training.

Go try it!
