I’m a huge breakfast fan – in fact it’s probably my favourite meal of the day (excluding dessert of course!). Usually, I’m a bowl of muesli, fruit and yoghurt kinda gal, but sometimes I like to mix things up a bit. Over the last few weeks, I’ve been making smoothies each morning and LOVING them. They’re such a quick and easy breakfast on the run!
This Skinny Mini Chocolate Peanut Butter Smoothie is by far my favourite at the moment. It tastes like you’re drinking a super yummy ice-cream chocolate milkshake, but it’s actually filled with healthy ingredients! I love that! It also kind of feels like you’re having dessert at breakfast time, which is a very, very cool thing indeed!
This smoothie is so simple to make in the Thermomix. You just pop everything into the bowl and blend for 20 seconds. I love that breakfast is ready in less than a minute – how easy is that! If you’re running short on time, pop your smoothie into a sealable jar and drink it on your way to work. This is also a great little treat to make in the afternoon (rather than reaching for that Freddo frog… although, let’s face it – that will probably still happen too!).
What are your favourite smoothies to make in the Thermomix?
- 1 frozen banana
- 3 tbs low fat greek yoghurt
- 1 and 1/2 tbs cocoa powder (you could also use cacao powder)
- 1 and 1/2 tbs peanut butter
- 1 tsp agave syrup (or honey)
- 1 cup skim milk (you could also use almond milk)
Place all ingredients into the TM bowl.
Blend on Speed 7 for 20 seconds or until completely smooth and creamy.
