Created by Jake’s Kitchen for Phantom Apparel
You've just come in from your workout and you're looking for a delicious protein filled smoothie that satisfies your body's nutritional needs and your sweet tooth. Banana smoothies and peanut butter smoothies are divine, so this smoothie recipe is a real match made in heaven. At only 357 calories it's great for post-workout breakfast as part of a low calorie diet.
- 1 overripe banana
- ¼ tea spoon of cinnamon powder
- 300 ml of oat milk
- 1 tablespoon of oat bran
- 1 tablespoon of peanut butter
- Small squeeze of runny honey
Place the peanut butter and banana into your blender, extra points if your overripe bananas are frozen in advance! (This allows the sugars and flavours to fully develop before freezing them and locking in all that goodness).
Pour in your oat milk, and a table spoon of oat bran. You'll then want to add a small squeeze of honey to give the natural sugars in the banana a boost, and sprinkle in half of your cinnamon. Blend until you get a rich and creamy consistency.
Finally, sprinkle the rest of your cinnamon over the top and enjoy. Fire up your tastebuds and Fire up the Spirit.
- If you don't have frozen bananas but still want a cold jolt after your workout, just use a couple of ice cubes!
- If you're allergic or sensitive to peanut butter, make the swap to almond butter for a brilliant new flavour!
- If you're looking to up your protein and fibre, add a teaspoon of chia seeds.
"Cooking has been a big part of my life since leaving university almost 17 years ago. I’ve never really seen it as a job, more a passion which I am fortunate enough to earn an income from. Knowing how to cook has also been so useful when it comes to my other passion - exercise.
I’m not obsessive about it but I know that I feel much better after I’ve done some, not just physically but mentally too. And it’s always been easier if I am eating well. I don’t like diets or fasts, but just try to apply a bit of common sense. Nothing is off limits, but I do pay attention to what I’m eating ands its usually easy to tell if something is doing more harm than good. Moderation is the key!
Life can be super busy so for me its all about being able to prepare food which is delicious, uncomplicated, and most importantly quick, but without compromising on health. I’m lucky that my background in food has helped me build up a bit of knowledge which I can use when cooking for myself and my family, and I'm pleased to share it with you through the Phantom Apparel brand."
