So the name of this recipe certainly doesn’t give you the image of a very healthy drink, but trust me, it’s packed with goodness and tastes amazing – like dessert in a cup! To make this rich caramel flavour we use a combination of banana, almond butter, medjool dates and almond milk. This milkshake is the perfect sweet treat, a delicious pudding and is an awesome way to replenish glycogen levels post-workout. The combination of carbohydrate and potassium from the banana, fructose from the medjool dates and protein from the almond butter make this perfect after intense exercise. Because of it’s high fibre content it will also help to stabilise blood sugar levels, keeping you sustained and energised for longer.
This is so easy to throw together and is seriously delicious!
