So it’s getting pretty hot here in Ibiza, and as much as I love my usual go-to breakfast of porridge, I am breaking into a bit of a sweat eating it, even at 7am!
So it’s at this time of year I turn to smoothies as a quick and tasty way to get all my nutrients in, without getting hot under the collar.
One of my favourite flavour combos is this Pear & Ginger Smoothie. It’s full of fresh flavours, like ginger and lime, and will take you less than 3 minutes to make, just throw everything in the blender and go!
All of your macros are covered here, 30g carbs from the pears and honey, some good fats from the walnuts, and of course, my favourite protein powder gives 30g protein too.
Just switch the whey protein for this amazing plant-based protein to make this breakfast vegan-friendly too.
The protein and good fats will leave you feeling satisfied and keep you going until it’s time for your next meal.
So, give it a go Ninjas, and don’t forget to tag your efforts on social media, #iamaFoodNinja 🙂
