This protein shake is a great pick-me-up when you’re finding it hard to get going in the morning; or a quick breakfast when you’re too rushed to have a sit-down meal. I don’t actually have too many sit-down breakfasts, except on holidays… I always seem to be eating on the run. The other day I even had breakfast in the shower! (There’s a very handy shelf right next to the shower – perfect for a breakfast-in-a-glass…) So obviously smoothies and protein shakes are a great brekkie for me!
Next time you make your own Nut Butter, try this protein shake. Leave a few tablespoons of the nut butter in the Thermomix bowl, add the almonds and grind them up. Then add the remaining ingredients and blend. Saves trying to scrape all the nut butter out.
This makes enough for 3-5 people, depending how big your glasses are.
Note: You can use pre-made almond milk instead of the nuts and water if you like.
The kids love this protein shake!
(And our bird thinks she would like it too…)
