Smoothies are the desert of the health queen. And this little gem is a reward to all who strive for refined-sugar free living, even though we may still remember fondly the heady joy of a wild night digging into a party bag 😉
I do find it hard to make smoothies in quantities which are reasonable for only 1 person, but the measurements in this recipe are perfect for a generous glass for one 🙂 This recipe is adapted from the genius of the Isowhey kitchen. They have loads of great ideas, and you can find more of their recipes here.
1 tablespoon vanilla protein powder (I'm using Bare Blends Organic Vanilla Bean WPI at the moment, but do let me know if you have a favourite yourself – especially if it come in sustainable packaging!)
1 banana, frozen
1 handful of raspberries, frozen or fresh
1 large dollop of yoghurt (I used Jalna BioDynamic Organic Yoghurt for this one)
1/2 cup coconut water
Put everything in your blender, liquids first, then everything else. Blend until smooth.
Pour into a glass, garnish as desired and enjoy!
