This raspberry banana smoothie is packed full of protein and fibre and makes the perfect on-the-go breakfast or snack!
The other day, Matt mentioned to me that lately he’s been running out of snack ideas to bring to work. He generally likes to go to the gym right from work, but he mentioned that he doesn’t normally have anything to eat before he goes to the gym. Big problem-o! I would konk out on the gym floor if I didn’t have a snack before my work out! I recently found out that he really loves smoothies and used to make them all the time, but for whatever reason, hasn’t been drinking them since moving into his new house. Sooo naturally, I suggested he fuel up with a smoothie.
Now I also happen to know that his favourite fruits are bananas and raspberries, so I paired them up into a smoothie! Voila! A quick and easy snack idea that’s full of fibre, protein, omega-3s, vitamin C and potassium. If all of those nutrients won’t fuel you up, I don’t know what will! When I made up a batch, I kept half of the smooth in a jar in the fridge and hours later, it was still good to go! I suggest whipping up a batch and keeping it in the fridge so that you have a ready-made grab-and-go snack!
