Meals and drinks high in protein have a lot of benefits for your health. A protein smoothie will keep you fuller for longer and is a great post-workout treat to assist with muscle repair and development.
This is a delicious peanut butter protein smoothie recipe with no need for any sweeteners, like honey or sugar. I find flavoured protein is often sweet enough.
This particular recipe can be super rich so depending on your particular protein, you may find it too sweet. If so, only add 200ml of milk and water it down with 200ml of water.
This smoothie is low in sugar and high in protein, super yummy and easy to make. I often have this as a quick on the go breakfast or as a post-workout smoothie and it keeps me fuller for longer.
PROTEIN SMOOTHIE RECIPE
WHAT YOU’LL NEED
1. A blender
2. 400ML of your choice of milk
3. 1 banana
4. 1 large teaspoon of peanut butter (or almond butter has less fat)
5. 2 scoops of your chosen protein
First add your milk into your blender, followed by the rest of your ingredients.
Blend ingredients until smooth. If the consistency is too thick add more milk or water. Pour into your favourite cup and enjoy!
If you wanted to turn this smoothie into a protein smoothie bowl, you can use a frozen banana to create a thicker consistency.
