Vanilla Sprinkle Milkshake 

 

Finally another recipe post! It seems the Great British Bake Off has played it's part again and has inspired me to get back in the kitchen, have you been watching it? C'mon of course you have, how can you resist Paul's ridiculously blue eyes and menacing death stare or Mary Berry's unintentional innuendos. 

I was also recently asked to be a brand ambassador for Silver Mushroom, a company specializing in all things kitchenware - they asked me if I would like to test out the *Breville Sports Active blender and see what I could conjure up, having recently switched to a high protein diet - thanks to the body coach, (also shall i do a post on it?) I thought I'd test out some delicious smoothie recipes I've been fantasizing up.

I've seen a similar recipe floating around on Pinterest before but included frozen Bananas, I was out of Bananas when I whipped this up and decided to alter it by adding some Vanilla protein, this meant the drink wasn't as thick but was such a nice healthy alternative to a classic vanilla milkshake. The sprinkles are obviously a bit of a naughty extra, but perfect for when you are in need of a little pick me up, for example: whilst they're making outrageous good looking cakes on GBBO. 

You Will Need:

- 1/4 cup Vanilla Protein, I used Impact Whey
- 1/4 cup low fat Greek Yoghurt
- 1/4 cup no added sugar almond milk
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- optional, sprinkles 

1. Add all the ingredients bar the sprinkles to the blender and whiz until smooth

2.  Add sprinkles and serve :) 

Breville Blend Active Sports Bottle Blender Review


The blender itself is a pretty nifty little gizmo and is compact enough to fit in well in my tiny little kitchen. What's great about it is I can literally just shove the ingredients in, give it a quick blend pop the lid on and go, which makes it ideal for a quick breakfast smoothie - plus is saves on a ton of washing up that a normal size blender requires. 

They're also great for making sauces with, I've been making a mozzarella and tomato sauce with it to go alongside meatballs (uh heaven). On Silver Mushroom it costs £23.99 which includes the blender itself and two sports bottles, which I think is an absolute steal compared to other brands such as the Nutribullet.

Chocolate and Mint Protein Smoothie Recipe, The Goodowl

 

Chocolate & Mint Smoothie

 

Time for the big guns, we're moving onto chocolate smoothies - can I get a hell yeah? *Hell Yeah!*. This chocolate & mint smoothie is a great addition to a post-work out refuel, or scrap that just a treat. It has frozen bananas in it which sounds weird with mint and chocolate, but I promise the taste is actually quite mild but they make the smoothie thicker and they're notoriously great energy booster.

Chocolate and mint in my eyes will always be a great pairing, but be warned the peppermint extract is potent! So you only need the smallest of drops. 

☼☼☼☼☼


You Will Need:

- 1/4 cup Chocolate Protein, again I used Impact Whey
- 2 Small Frozen Bananas, make sure they're ripe and diced into small pieces
- 1/4 cup no added sugar Almond Milk
- 2 tbsp Cocoa Powder
- 2 tbsp Low Fat Greek Yoghurt
- 1/8 tsp Peppermint Extract (Careful this stuff is potent!)

1. Add all the ingredients to the blender and whiz until smooth.

2. Optional add some grated dark chocolate and ice.

Dark Chocolate & Peanut Butter


Then onto my piesta resistance, the dark chocolate and peanut butter mega shake. This is packed full of goodness but is still a little bit on the naughty side - but hey, life is for living. I've melted dark chocolate to create the syrup around the sides of the glass, but you can use milk chocolate or even a store bought syrup if you like. 

P.S Silver Mushroom also stock some of these handled glass drinking jars similar to the ones I've used for the photos. 

☼☼☼☼☼


You Will Need:

- 1/4 cup Chocolate Protein, again I used Impact Whey
- 1/2 cup no added sugar Almond Milk
- 1/4 cup low fat Greek Yoghurt
- 2 tbsp Cocoa Powder
- 1 1/2 tbsp Peanut Butter
- 2 tbsp Cocoa Powder 
- 1 tbsp Honey 
- Optional, Dark chocolate or syrup.

1. Add all the ingredients to the blender and whiz until smooth.

2.  Optional add syrup around the glass before you pour the mixture into it.
