Everyone loves a good smoothie. Smoothies are a great way to get a quick meal in that will fill you up for a fair while. It’s also a handy way to take a meal with you on the go, especially if you are running out the door and near something to eat on the way to work/uni/school etc. The flavour and nutrient combos of smoothies are practically endless. Not to mention they have got to be the easiest things to make ever, chuck everything in a blender, and boom, you have a smoothie ready to go!
One of my favourite go to smoothies is a simple one that incorporates three of my favourite foods: Chocolate, Banana, and Peanut Butter . It’s a perfectly balanced meal, with a third of the calories coming from each macronutrient. It also tastes divine!
- 1 Medium-Large Banana (broken into 2-3 pieces)
- 1 Scoop (30g) Chocolate Protein Powder
- 200ml Water
- 1 tbsp (25g) 100% Natural Peanut Butter
- Chuck it all in a blender and blend until smooth… literally, that’s it!
This smoothie is delicious by itself but also pairs well with a sprinkling of granola or rawnola over the top. I often add some of my Chewy Chocolate Rawnola or Crunchy Chocolate Granola over the top to add a little crunch!

I often have this smoothie before bed as a little late night dessert but also to help me get to sleep (there is nothing worse than being hungry whilst trying to get to sleep) and to keep me satiated throughout the night so I don’t wake up ravenous!
