It’s been quite a while since I’ve been able to enjoy a non-rushed morning routine. Now I’m working closer to home and not suffering a lengthy commute, I’m still waking up at the same time I was before, but I now have a luxurious 2 hours(!) to spare.
Now I’m not walking as much to and from work, I am a bit more aware that I also can’t have a massive breakfast every day, like I could before (using the walk as my excuse for a bacon bap most days). With this in mind, I’ve cracked out my blender and created the ultimate breakfast smoothie, which not only packs a protein punch, but also includes some coffee for a proper kick up the ass.
This recipe sounds vile if you’ve not tried it. I mean… banana… coffee? But I thought that before I gave it a go and it’s absolutely delicious!
Simple Banana Mocha Protein Shake Recipe
The ingredients are simple:
✔2 x bananas (for yer five a day)
✔250ml Almond or Hazelnut milk (adds more flavour than regular milk and loads less calories)
✔Tablespoon of Coffee (I’ve used the chocolate flavour one from Little’s Coffee)
✔Scoop of protein powder (chocolate flavour for an even richer mocha flavour)
Whizz it up in a blender and you’re good to go!
