See, running an organic sports nutrition company means we spend a lot of our time trying out new ways of using our products so we can share the best with you. And since we’re not ones to skip breakfast, we make a smoothie every morning when we get to the office – and we’ve become pretty handy at it.
Motion Nutrition’s Power Breakfast Smoothie Recipe
Here’s what you’ll need for one big serving (double up the recipe for two people):
- 250-300ml of Almond Milk (pick an unsweetened version like Plenish)
- 1/4 cup of Oats
- 1 scoop Motion Nutrition Classic Whey Protein (Pure whey works great, but you can also use Vegan Protein)
- 1 tea spoon Coconut Oil
- 1 tablespoon Peanut Butter
- Half a Banana
- Heaped table Spoon Dried Cranberries (you can use raisins, dates, or even dried apricots if you don’t have cranberries)
- Large Handful of Ice (optional)
Here’s how to make it:
Add the ingredients to your blender in the order above. A trick to ensure a smooth mix (did we mention we’ve become pretty handy at this?) is to add half the liquid first, start the blender on low and increase gradually. Poor in the remaining liquid at the end before switching the blender off.
We tend to opt for unsweetened almond milk, but a sweetened option turns this shake into a real treat. You can also try it out with different types of milk – cashew, hazelnut, oat, or organic dairy milk.
Full of healthy protein, essential fats and energy, this recipe is a great way to get moving.
