Smoothies are a great breakfast option if made correctly! I like to make mine with:

a good quality protein powder, almond or coconut milk, low carb fruit/veggies , lots of healthy fats (chia, flaxseed, nut butter) and maca powder, cacao, cinnamon or a green powder for extra flavour.

This recipe uses Maca Powder which is derived from Maca Root, a cruciferous vegetable native to Peru. From the small amount of research on Maca, it's known to improve energy, libido, fertility and assist with female hormone health.

Ingredients

30g vanilla WPI protein powder

½ banana

1 tablespoon almond butter

1 tablespoon maca powder

1 tablespoon cinnamon

½ tablespoon tahini

1 teaspoon chia seed

1 cup unsweetened almond milk

Method

Place all ingredients into a blender and blend until a desired consistency is reached.

Pour into a glass and enjoy.

Notes

  1. The banana makes the smoothie thicker and is a great low GI carbohydrate source. If you don’t like banana add ½ cup of ice. Approximately 400 calories without banana.

  2. 30g protein powder is equal to roughly 3 tablespoons. I use the Bare Blends WPI Vanilla Bean.

  3. Vegan option: Use a pea protein powder if you follow a plant-based diet. You can find the Bare Blends versions here: https://bareblends.com.au/protein-powder/vegan-protein.
