I woke up feeling hungry and thirsty – this is happening a lot at the moment due to upping my running mileage. Although to be fair even if I do nothing I always wake up hungry. I wanted a quick filling breakfast so went for my favourite quick smoothie plus some extra toast on the side. I’ve called this my Snicky smoothie because the taste reminds me a little bit of a snickers bar, although probably a little healthier. The spinach lessens the guilt and you really can’t taste it at all.
The Snicky Smoothie (serves one)
- 250ml almond milk (I use unsweetened)
- A handful of fresh spinach leaves
- 1 tsp almond butter
- 1 tsp peanut butter
- 1 medjool date (or 2 smaller ones if you don’t have these)
- A banana (I save a bit of my banana for my toast)
Blend it all together.
