RECIPE - Bananacado Fuel-up Shake

Click here for a printable version of this recipe

I love a portmanteau word, in fact many of my recipe titles include them and bananacado, what’s not to love? It’s one of my rules in life – never trust anyone who doesn’t love avocado - well OK I do have one friend who doesn’t like them but I won’t hold that against her! This is the perfect post-workout pick-me-up; bananas for energy, avo for good fats and cinnamon for a digestive boost.


SERVES: 1


KITCHEN TIME: 5 mins



INGREDIENTS:

1 ripe banana, peeled, chopped and frozen (if you don’t have a frozen one add a few crushed ice cubes)

½ a ripe avocado, stoned, peeled and chopped

100ml semi-skimmed milk or milk of choice

½ tsp ground cinnamon


PREP TIP: This works best with frozen bananas so next time you’ve got a couple of manky overripe ones in the fruit bowl peel them, chop them up and pop in a Tupperware in the freezer ready to break out when it’s smoothie time.


METHOD: Put all the ingredients into a blender and blend well, increasing the speed, for 1-2 minutes until the banana is completely incorporated.


SERVING TIP: A glass would be good!
