Smoothies – Day 12 – Spicy Creamy Shake

ruflag

I would call this one a shake rather than a smoothie, as it doesn’t really have any solid ingredients, only liquids and powders. I’ve had it after a workout and it feels great!

Here is what goes in the blender:

  • Half cup almond milk
  • Half cup black coffee (americano)
  • One scoop protein powder with chocolate flavour
  • Two teaspoons Bioglan Superfoods Supergreens Cacao Boost powder
  • One tablespoon flaxseed
  • Half teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon matcha powder
  • A pinch of cinnamon
  • A pinch of clove
  • A pinch of ginger
  • A pinch of nutmeg
  • Half tablespoon clotted Cornish cream (the unhealthy bit 🙂 )

ruflag

Today I am making a delicious muscle-restoring Double Chocolate/Peanut Butter smoothie, which should be perfect after a resistance workout.

It is made of:

  • Half cup coconut milk (feel free to use cow/soy/rice/almond/hemp or whatever milk instead)
  • One banana
  • One tablespoon cocoa powder
  • One scoop whey protein with chocolate flavour
  • One tablespoon peanut butter
  • One tablespoon ground flaxseed

Breakfast – Day 14

ruflag

Overnight oats again today! But the recipe is slightly different. Once again I mix up 1/2 cup of rolled oats with a tablespoon of flaxseed and chia seeds each, add 2/3 cup of coconut milk and a teaspoon of honey, but this time also in go some raspberries, a mashed banana and a tablespoon of unsweeted cocoa powder.

In the morning the oats are topped with fresh raspberries and blackberries and are ready to eat!

Breakfast – Day 11

ruflag

Here is my new discovery – overnight oats. It’s really great on a weekday, when you don’t have a lot of time in the morning.

It’s very easy to make as well – the night before I just take half a cup of rolled oats (not quick oats though!), add a tablespoon of chia seeds (this is a must – it gives my oats a proper texture) and a tablespoon of ground flaxseed and mix all the dry ingredients well in a jar before adding the liquids: 2/3 cup of coconut milk (anything else can be used instead – cow milk, almond milk, soy milk, yoghurt, fruit juice) and a teaspoon of honey. I mix everything up, add a pinch of cinnamon and put the jar into the fridge.

The only thing left to be done in the morning is making the banana & mango cream: basically mixing 1/3 cup of plain yoghurt with a banana and some mango chunks in a blender. I then try to put the cream and the oats in layers, which apparently doesn’t work extremely well. By the way, needless to say, the oats can be topped with absolutely anything you wish: fruits, berries, nuts, granola, chocolate – you name it!

I totally loved this one, it tasted heavenly!
