High-Protein Pecan Pie Breakfast Smoothie
I have been loving this smoothie recently for these not quite summer, not quite autumn mornings. It's very filling and really sets you up for the day!
Pecan Pie Breakfast Smoothie
[Prep Time: 5 mins. Cook Time: 2. Total Time = 7 Minutes]
10 pecans, toasted
1 medium unripe banana (100g) ideally frozen in pieces*
1 tbsp peanut butter
3 tsp rolled oats
1/2 tsp cinnamon
tiny, tiny pinch of turmeric, ground
1 pinch of nutmeg, ground
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
240ml/1 cup of lowFODMAP plant milk (e.g. almond, rice or hemp)
1 heaped tsp or rice or pea protein
option maple syrup
* ice or chilled water if not using a frozen banana
Lightly toast the pecans in a dry frying pan over a medium heat. They burn very easily to keep a close eye on them. We want them just lightly browns at the edges.
Combine all the ingredients in a blender, along with the pecans.
Blend until smooth.
Add more chilled water if you prefer a thinner texture and maple syrup if you like it sweeter.
Serve and enjoy!
