I love smoothies for breakfast! I have a green smoothie with spinach or kale and bananas almost every morning. My favourite smoothies are, well anyone with a banana in it really, but most recipes I read are often filled with dairy. So as I am know on a vegan mission (for the duration of advent at least) I rarely see a recipe for any vegan smoothies…… Come on we need more, get sharing your recipes, TODAY
Homemade smoothies are the best! This banana smoothie without yogurt and milk, currently, tops my list. It’s not only super delicious, but also extremely easy to make. And, it’s completely sugar-free. A real energy booster!
Give it a try and let me know how you like it..
You need only five ingredients to make vegan this banana smoothie and probably you already got most of them in your pantry.
The 5 ingredients you need:
2 tablespoons chia seeds
1 tablespoon peanut butter
1/2 cup ice cubes
3/4 cup water
Its really simple… Put all ingredients into a blender and process until smooth.
The Healthy Info Bit:
The colour of this banana smoothie might not be the prettiest down to the chia seeds and dates, but it’s full with healthy ingredients and so tasty! Instead of sugar, I added dates, which are like nature’s sweet treat. Over the last couple of years, chia seeds have become a popular superfood. They’re originally grown in Mexico and “chia” actually means “as much as strength”. These little seeds are real energy wonders. They contain a large amount of omega-3 fatty acids, carbohydrates, fibre, protein, calcium, and antioxidants.
I usually use them in homemade granola bars, or I sprinkle them over some of my meals.
Let me know if you give this banana smoothie a try. As always, I love hearing from you guys
