Now that spring has arrived and the sun is shining (sometimes) I love to have fruity smoothies! Smoothies are a great way to incorporate in protein powder and when I saw that G&P have produced two lean muscle mass products as fruit flavours (banana and strawberry) I couldn’t wait to get my hands on them and add them to my smoothie bowls! If you are someone who finds it difficult to drink protein shakes with just water or milk then smoothies are a great alternative without making it obvious that the powder is added, especially when the flavour is sweet and fruity. Not only is G&Ps banana lean muscle mass giving you a sufficient amount of protein, it contains ZMA to support your muscle recovery and immune system and also incorporates green tea as an effective fat-burner and great source of antioxidants.
There are so many combinations when it comes to making your own fruit smoothies and my go-to ingredients are banana and berries. I also always use frozen fruit in my smoothies because it makes the smoothie come out a lot thicker and colder because it essentially acts as a substitute to using ice. Secondly it is a lot more cost effective to buy packs of frozen fruit rather than fresh fruit, so if you’re like myself and love to make smoothies then it is worth making this change and saving your pennies! For example at Tesco’s 150g of fresh raspberries is the same price as 350g of frozen raspberries!!
Okay, so onto making this delicious protein smoothie! The ingredients that I used are:
1. One half of a frozen banana
2. 80g of mixed frozen berries (blackberries, raspberries, blueberries and strawberries)
3. 125g fat free greek yoghurt
4. 1 scoop (around 30g) of G&P banana flavour lean muscle mass
5. A splash of milk
For the topping of my smoothie bowl I simply added extra frozen blackberries, milled chia seeds, dark chocolate and mixed seeds. If you don’t have time to create a smoothie bowl like this and eat at home, then simply pour it into your G&P shaker and take it with you, which creates a perfect snack to drink at work or on the go!
This recipe can also be altered to use G&P’s strawberry flavour lean muscle mass instead and then switching to use a whole frozen banana and half the amount of frozen berries to keep the balance perfect! Remember, this is only
one method of using G&P’s banana lean muscle mass in a smoothie but there are tons of different combinations you can make.
If you have made any creations then comment below and add in a picture of your smoothie bowl as we’d love to see them!
