Preparation time: 15 mins
- 1 ripe banana
- 200 gr soya yogurt or natural live yogurt (I used with banana and passionfruit flavour as it matches perfectly)
- 1 tbsp milled golden flaxseed
- 1 handful of frozen blackberries (around 100gr, allow 1hr to defrost or buy fresh)
- 1 scoop Plantforce Sinergy Life, vegan protein (20gr), natural flavour
- 1 tbsp roasted cashews
Mix all ingredients (except cashews) in a blender until you get a smooth consistency. Pour onto a bowl and top with a few blackberries and cashews.
You can use different fruits and nuts to vary this delicious breakfast. I used frozen blackberries for I have a surplus in my freezer, from a bunch I picked a few weeks ago. Using recently defrosted fruits helps to achieve a good consistency in your smoothie.
I find this is a perfect match after a morning session of cardio & strength. I use this vegan protein for it´s rich in amino acids, quite easy to blend and is plant-based (mix brown rice, hemp and pea proteins).
