Choc-Banana Protein Smoothie

12 Jan 2018

This makes for a great pre- or post-training snack. To save time, organise several ‘smoothie containers’ in advance by putting all the ingredients (minus the liquid) into a container and store them in the freezer. Blitz or blend on the day you are going to consume.


  • ½ banana
  • 1 cup coconut water or milk of your choice
  • 1 ½ teaspoons of raw cacao powder
  • ½ teaspoon of cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon of chia seeds
  • ¼ cup walnuts
  • 1 scoop of protein powder or however many scoops is the equivalent of 10 – 15g of protein if you are using coconut water or a nut milk (There is no need to add additional protein powder if you are using cow’s milk)
  • 2 – 3 ice cubes (optional)


  1. Add all ingredients in a blender or nutribullet and blitz until smooth.

Note: if you are making this in advance, the chia seeds will make your smoothie a bit more ‘gluggy’ so if texture is a big thing for you, add these just before consuming.
