1. Chocolate Banana Smoothie
If you love a good banana and chocolate combo, this one’s a winner. One serving of this smoothie is rich in protein and fiber, gives the goodness of whole fruit and antioxidant-rich cocoa. Not to mention the dose of collagen it has to support your skin, hair, and nails.
Ingredients you need - Bananas, whole milk, unsweetened cocoa powder and honey (optional)
Starting with 1/4 cup of milk, toss in ½ a frozen banana, 2 table spoons unsweetened cocoa powder, a little bit of honey and just blend it together till you see a smooth creamy texture!
2. Strawberry Banana Nutella Smoothie
If you feel like having dessert for breakfast, there’s nothing our favorite chocolate-hazelnut spread can’t fix. Start your day with the freshness of strawberries, proteins from bananas, a little bit of Greek yogurt for consistency and to top it all add Nutella to sweeten the deal and it will keep you full till lunch.
Blend together ½ frozen banana, 1/4 cup of milk, ½ cup strawberries (fresh or frozen), ½ cup plain low-fat yogurt and 2 heaped spoons of Nutella (1/2 cup water optional if you don’t want a thick consistency)
3. Pumpkin Pie Smoothie
The richness of pumpkin pie in a drink is easy to make at home and not as messy as you might have thought. Pumpkin is not only an excellent source for vitamin A but also rich in protein and omega-3 fats.
Prepare 1 banana, ¼ cup yogurt, ¼ cup pumpkin puree, ⅛ teaspoon ground cinnamon, 1 small pinch of ground ginger and top it with some chia seeds to add a little texture and blend it all together.
