There are banana smoothie recipes and then there is this banana smoothie recipe. Rich, creamy and best of all, not laden with oodles of rubbish ingredients.

Be sure to use a good quality peanut butter paste and not one packed with nasties. A chocolate flavoured protein powder is sure to give a super good flavour combination and makes this the best smoothie recipe to consume after your workout.



Alexandra is a girl who loves to bake. And that’s how her blog, Confessions of a bright-eyed baker, began. After spending so much time soaking up what she saw on other food blogs, Alexandra realized that she was itching to start her own. Fast forward to the present and that little spark of inspiration has become a whole wildfire of inspiration in her life.
