Designed by one of our Mountain biking clients, Stickymitts, this is a delicious way to pimp gorgeous whole milk. Great on our Cool Porridge or as a recovery drink after exercise. Three simple ingredients, whole milk, peanut butter and clear honey. Cheaper and loads better than processed gloopy recovery drinks!
Sticky's peanut butter smoothie
- 150ml of whole unhomogenised milk (try Jersey milk or Duchy from Waitrose)
- 170g Greek yoghurt
- 1 very heaped teaspoon of crunchy or semi-crunchy peanut butter. Use one with no palm-oil and additive-free, such as Biona, Meridian or Proper Nutty.
- 1-2 teaspoons of mild clear honey, such as Acacia
Milk contains a variety of important nutrients including protein, calcium, potassium, phosphorus and iodine, as well as the vitamins B2 and B12. These help to maintain healthy bones, teeth and cell membranes, improve energy metabolism, brain and nerve signals, aid thyroid function, encourage healthy skin, boost immunity and help with red blood cell production.
In addition to milk yoghurt provides probiotics to make your gut happy. We should all aim to diversify out friendly gut critters because they have an effect right through the body including levels of happiness and sadness! The peanuts in the peanut butter are good source of vitamin E, niacin, folate, protein and manganese. Vitamin E is a key player in healthy cell membranes and as we have about 32 trillion cells it's a good idea to get some vitamin E around them!
