AFTER SPORT–SMOOTHIES

The following smoothies can be taken to the sidelines but they will need to be kept chilled in a cooler bag. Making smoothies using frozen fruit will also help to keep them cool. Just remember to give the smoothie a good shake before serving!


For all smoothies: Simply use a blender (or hand blender) to whizz up all the ingredients together. Pour into a glass or portable container. That’s it!

This healthy makeover of a monster dessert can be made very quickly as long as you pre-freeze the banana. You can keep bananas stored in a freezer for up to 1 month.

Ingredients:
150ml skimmed milk
2 tsp low or no sugar hot chocolate mix
1 banana
Toppings
Handful of fresh or defrosted frozen berries
Chopped nuts or seeds
Toasted oats

Method:

  1. Place the banana in a freezer, unpeeled for a minimum of 2 hours until frozen.
  2. Heat around 50ml of the milk and add the hot chocolate mix. Stir until completely dissolved. Pour into a large glass and mix in the rest of the milk.
  3. Peel the frozen banana and chop it into chunks. Place it in a food processor or blender and pulse the banana until it is blended and creamy. Scoop the banana into 2 balls and add to the glass, on top of the milk.
  4. Lastly, sprinkle with your chosen toppings and serve with a spoon.
