Nutty Banana Smoothie (Ve)
A nutritious smoothie delight with just 5 ingredients! Outrageously delicious, just happens to be vegan.
Bananas are not only a great source of Potassium, supporting the health of blood vessels, but are also a fantastic prebiotic food. The bacteria in the gut (probiotics) feed off the prebiotics which makes prebiotics vital for a healthy gut. Learn more about probiotics and prebiotics from our expert nutritionists.
Nuts and seeds are valuable additions to all diets, without allergies of course, as they are a fantastic source of plant-based protein. You may like to read more in 'Best protein sources on a plant-based diet'.
1 sliced banana, ideally frozen.
3 tbsp rolled oats (you may wish to opt for gluten-free oats).
250ml / 1 cup unsweetened soya milk, or other milk of choice. You may like to read 'What is the best plant-based milk?' written by our nutritionists.
2 tbsp nut butter, we've opted for peanut butter.
1 tbsp chia seeds, for extra plant-based protein and Omega 3.
You may also like to take your Daily Multi-Vitamin within the smoothie, simply by 'unscrewing' the capsule and pouring in the contents. This is just as effective as swallowing the capsule whole.
1. Place all ingredients in a blender, though you may like to add the liquid a bit at a time, depending on how thick you like your smoothie.
2. Blend until smooth. This should take about 1 minute.
3. Pour into a tall glass, decorate with any remaining nuts or seeds. You may like to sprinkle some ground cinnammon for sweetness.
4. Enjoy and remember to tag your recipe photo with us on Facebook and Instagram at @drveganco
