Orange and Nut Protein Smoothie

This festive orange and nut protein smoothie is creamy and nutritious, made from your favourite protein powder and healthy ingredients.

This recipe takes 60 seconds to create in a high-speed blender. 

Simply add all the ingredients below. 

160g oranges (vitamin C)

60g banana (vitamin B6 and potassium)

75g walnuts and almonds (vitamin E and manganese)

50g of my favourite pea protein powder (from Bulk Powders)

400 ml of cold water

Although not necessary, the mixture of almonds and walnuts can be pre-soaked. 

For a more refreshing taste the drink can be placed in the refrigerator for an hour before stirring and enjoying.

Fig, Grape and Walnut Bars

This nutrient-rich energy bar is a delicious treat after a run, as it contains natural sugars and will hydrate you.

I first chop 220g of dried figs (antioxidants and vitamin K). I place them in a food processor with the following ingredients:

  • 270g fresh grapes (vitamin C)
  • 100g crushed walnuts (manganese and folic acid)
  • 10g milled flaxseed (vitamin B6 and Omega-3)

I spread the mixture in a loaf tin and placed it in the freezer for at least an hour. The loaf can then be cut into slices.

The bars are best eaten individually straight from the freezer as they quickly lose their shape due to the high water content.
