This has quickly become one of my absolute favorite breakfast recipes! Just one ‘dish’ to wash when you’re done. Smoothies are amazing because they are so versatile, so quick, and so healthy! Of course, that last part does depend on what you put into it.
Many stores and fast food options that claim they have “healthy smoothies” are really not so healthy. They are calorie and sugar packed health bombs masquerading as health food. Just because it has a teaspoon of spinach powder or banana puree does not excuse a smoothie with 118 grams of sugar and over 500 calories!
So why not blend one up at home? Far healthier, super fast and easy, and way healthier for you.
This recipe takes your typical banana base, and adds several other super health foods such as peanut butter powder (for all the flavor with a tiny percentage of the fat!), gut-helping yogurt, healthy fats from coconut milk, fiber packed oats, and the ultimate tiny nutrition powerhouse: chia!
- 1 banana
- 2/3 cup yogurt or Greek yogurt
- 2 tbsp PB2 or PBFit
- 1/4 cup oats
- 1 cup coconut milk
- 1 tbsp chia seeds
Step 1: Combine all ingredients in a blender, and blend on high until well combined.
You could optionally add in a scoop of protein powder if you need it, or a cup of ice cubes if you want a different texture.
This recipe makes enough for 2 good sized glasses of about 16 oz each, so share with a friend or save the second serving for later, maybe after a good workout!
