Rainy day smoothie.

After yesterday’s bike ride I couldn’t get out of bed this morning – today is my rest day. 😉

It was a rainy day today. Had a wonderful simply delicious sandwich for lunch. I will probably post it up tomorrow.

Worked on my applications with coffee made with almond milk. My tummy cannot tolerate too much cow’s milk these days. We usually have the 2% partly skimmed, but I’ve opted for almond milk 90% of the time and I feel just fine.

I felt like a protein smoothie for dinner. Thought I would mix things up and try a new flavour. I use the Kaizen protein powder (vanilla & chocolate) and I feel like I’m literally chugging it down. It’s too sweet and….well, I’m not a fan, I will need to switch soon. So I try to cover up the taste by adding a lot of other items to the smoothie to mask the protein taste. I experimented and came up with something new today. You may or may not be a fan 🙂

So here goes.

Banana-Chocolate Mint protein smoothie

– 1 banana

– 1 scoop vanilla protein powder

– 2 tablespoons oat powder

– a few leaves of chocolate mint

– 1/4 tablespoon cinnamon

– 1/2 tablespoon flax powder

– for an extra kick I added chai masala powder (optional)

– 1 cup milk of choice

I personally thought the chocolate mint (which we grow in our garden along with many other herbs) added a special twist to this smoothie. If you want it more sweet you can even throw in some dates! Yum!


Till next time.
