Smoothies are one of my favourite ways to get a few extra nutrients into my diet and to fill me up when I’m in a rush. They’re quick, easy and (if you manage to find the right combination of ingredients) taste delicious!

So I’ve decided to start up a weekly Smoothie Saturday recipe post to give you guys some ideas of easy recipes to try.

I toyed with the idea of listing the nutritional info in each recipe and explaining all of the benefits each ingredient offers you, but then I figured that if you’re anything like me you’ll probably skim right past this part and go straight to the recipe anyway. Therefore these recipe posts will be fairly short each Saturday just to basically give you the recipe.

Last summer I posted this particular recipe on my Instagram feed and it is still without doubt my absolute favourite smoothie recipe…probably because it doesn’t taste like it’s actually good for me. But it is!

This is something I will often have when I’m in a rush and don’t have time to make lunch, as it’s so filling that it keeps me going (along with a few snacks) until I get the chance to make a decent sized dinner.

Banana Choco PB Smoothie



1 medium banana

1 scoop Nutristrength cocoa flavour protein powder – I’ve used both their whey protein isolate and pea protein, and they both work perfectly

20g peanut butter – I use Pip n Nut

300ml coconut milk (or cashew milk – or any milk you fancy)


Put the banana, milk and protein powder into the smoothie cup and add the peanut butter last (just to prevent it sticking to the bottom of the cup when you whizz it all up).

Then whizz it up in the smoothie maker, pour into a glass and enjoy!


I’ve added vegan whipped cream, chocolate buttons and Sweet Freedom choc shot to this one.
