Quick, easy shake. I have been going to the gym in the mornings and don't like to eat a meal before I go but need something to keep my blood sugar stable. This shake took moments to make in a blender and was quite tasty. I was expecting it to be bland but the coffee and banana had a lovely taste and I didn't need to add sugar. This was pleasant alternative to can of slim shake that I used to have and without the sugar, and additives. Pros: Took only 2 mins to make

Didn't know what to think at first but I've just made this smothie as a snack and I absolutely love it. I didn't have a smoothie maker but I just mashed up all the ingredients (although i didn't put sugar in it - was already quite sweet :D ) and ate it with a spoon from a bowl. I also added a few chopped up brazil nuts and I think when I make it again I'll try it with a few oats tossed in. Very filling and healthy. Def would recommend!
