Recipe: Nut and Mango Smoothie

This fruity smoothie is ideal for a last-minute breakfast on the go. With healthy fats and a scoop of protein powder, this is way better for you than any bowl of boxed cereal.

Try not to get into the habit of having smoothies every day, though. As I always say, real food wins over dust every time.

Ingredients

125g sliced mango
2 tbsp almond or cashew
butter
handful of ice cubes
handful of raspberries
2 tbsp full-fat Greek yoghurt
1 scoop (30g) vanilla or
strawberry protein powder
100ml almond milk

Method
Place all the ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth.

Serves 1

Top Tip
Warning! Don’t go nuts with your nuts. While they are a great source of protein, fibre and essential fats, nuts also contain lots of calories.

It’s very easy to crack open a 200g bag and finish the lot without feeling full. But remember every gram of fat contains 9 kcal, so overeating nuts will not help with your fat loss.

Banana Man STORYI recommend a snack portion of 25–30g. Also, try to get a variety of different nuts as they contain different vitamins. Almonds, walnuts and cashews are my personal favourites.
