A nutritious smoothie recipe that is ideal for those who lead an active lifestyle and follow a balanced diet. This drink has a pleasant taste, a high energy value and an optimal ratio of proteins, fats and carbohydrates, which makes it a great option for a quick breakfast, a healthy snack or to regain energy after an intense workout.

The base of this smoothie is banana, peanut paste and protein powder. Together they give the drink a sweet, nice creamy texture and fill it with healthy fats, carbohydrates and protein for a long-lasting feeling of satiety. Combined with milk, this smoothie is a complete source of the nutrients you need for an active day.

Preparing a protein smoothie doesn't take much time. Just make sure you have all the ingredients on hand and follow the step-by-step instructions below!


Cooking Instructions

  1. Prepare all ingredients. I used regular cow's milk and chocolate protein powder, but plant-based milk (almond or coconut) and vanilla protein are also great for making this smoothie. I also recommend getting creamy peanut paste (instead of crunchy).

  2. Place all ingredients except milk, honey and protein powder in blender jug and start blending on high speed. Gradually add the milk and honey to adjust the thickness and sweetness of the smoothie. You can add ice (optional) if you want a cold drink.

    When the main ingredients are blended, start adding the protein powder one at a time and blend on low speed. If you add the protein powder all at once and blend at high speed, there is a chance that the protein will create a lot of foam.

  3. When you have reached the right consistency, pour the shake into a glass. Garnish with some cocoa powder or banana slices.

    Your delicious and nutritious smoothie is ready to enjoy!
