Food Talk: Smoothies and Shakes (3 Recipes)

Since we started a conscious effort to keep our weight in control, we replaced some of our regular meals with low calorie, filling and yet nutritious alternatives. Smoothies and shakes became one of our regular dinner options on days when we have had a fuller lunch or when we are lazy to cook something. On more productive days we'd make a salad and some of our favourite recipes of salads are on the blog. 

Here I am sharing three of my favourite smoothies or shakes that we have instead of our regular meal. 

Each recipe makes approximately four servings of 300ml (Enough for the 2 of us)

1. Banana and Peanut Butter

Almond Milk or Low Fat Milk  (3 Cups)

Banana (1 Large) I normally cut bananas and freeze them

Peanut Butter (4 Tbsp)

Honey (2 Tbsp) (Optional - we do not add any honey)

Put everything in a blender and blend away! 

2. Avocado Smoothie

Almond Milk or Low fat Milk (4 Cups)

Avocado (1 Ripe)

Yoghurt (1 Tbsp)

Manuka Honey or Normal Honey (3 Tbsp)

Ice cubes (1/2 Cup)

Put all of it in a blender and blend to smooth drink. Avocados bring a creamy texture to the smoothie that you'd love

If you feel that these smoothies are not filling enough, you can always add granola to make it more filling 

3. Strawberry and Granola Shake

Low Fat Milk (3 Cups)

Frozen strawberry (1 Cup)

Frozen Banana (1 Large)

Peanut Butter (2 Tbsp)

Honey (2 Tbsp)

Almond Granola (2 Tbsp)

Ice cubes (1/2 Cup)

Blend it all in a blender and have a rich and filling meal.
