Smoothie 1: Creamy Green Energy Machine

This is a rich, creamy and very filling drink full of energy and nutrients. Bananas are a fantastic source of potassium, vitamins, manganese and fibre. Similarly, avocados are a great source of fibre and vitamins, such as A and E, while, on the other hand, they are also sources of folate and pantothenic acid. The creaminess comes from the creamy, buttery consistency of avocados as well as the soya milk which for some reason gives smoothies a great creaminess which you’d almost think would have to come from cream but in fact is entirely from the soya itself. This makes a great quick breakfast, on-the-go snack, or part of a breakfast. The main ingredients, banana and avocado, successfully provide good nutritional content for both pre and post-workouts making it ideal to drink on the way to the gym or after the gym.
