Chocolate orange protein smoothie

A healthy, balanced diet should give you all the protein you need (as a rough guide aim for 0.8g for each kilo you weigh) but if you’re time poor, hungry post-workout or need to replenish energy levels fast, a protein shake can be an excellent solution. This recipe can easily be rustled up in a blender/ magic bullet, contains just 5 ingredients and tastes like Terry’s Chocolate Orange. Best of all it contains fibre, prebiotics, probiotics, B vitamins and chromium (which helps balance blood sugar levels). You’re welcome.


Serves 1 / vegan

1/2 banana

150 ml plant milk (I used coconut)

1/4 tsp cinnamon

1 tsp chia seeds

1-2 tsp chocolate protein powder (I like Zaggora’s * Chocolate Orange Protein Super Smoothie*)

Blend all ingredients together and enjoy asap.

*Contains antioxidants, fibre, probiotics, vitamins and healthy omega fats.
