Baked Orange, Raisin and Oat Energy Bars

Ah these are so tasty. Beautiful little bars packed full of energy giving goodness and amazing flavours. I love fresh oranges and mixed with the raisins and mixture of nuts and oats, it's a perfect combination for me! And I definitely eat one of these for a quick breakfast if I'm up and on the go. They're also great for me to have about an hour before I workout which keeps my energy levels up and they're equally as great for my afternoon pick me up followed by a gorgeous green tea. Here's my recipe:

Banana and Pear Protein Milkshake

I had to up my intake of protein since starting the Kayla Itsines Bikini Body Guide at the beginning of January, so it was a good reason for me to start exploring different ways to get protein into my diet. I love having smoothies and smoothie bowls in the morning rather than a big cooked meal so adding extra protein into different recipes is great for me to have the required amount needed while still enjoying a lovely nutritious tasty jar of goodness when I wake up! And I love adding superfood powders in wherever possible to boost my nutrient intake. Here’s a lovely, creamy milkshake recipe I came up with this morning:

Banana and Pear Protein Milkshake
Makes 1

• 1 medium banana, peeled and chopped
• 1 pear, skinned and chopped up
• 2 tablespoons of rolled oats, I use gluten free
• 2 teaspoons of vanilla extract 
• 1 scoop of protein powder of your choice – either vanilla or unflavoured 
• 1 teaspoon of maca powder
• 1 ½ cups of almond milk – or milk of choice

Simply place all of the above ingredients in your blender and blend up for a minute or so. It will be nice and creamy but shouldn't be too thick. If it is, add a dash of water and re-blend. Enjoy!

Vanilla, Maca and Spinach Protein Smoothie

I have a real thing about protein smoothies at the moment! I love experimenting with new flavour combinations and came up with this one this morning. I think maca goes beautifully with vanilla, the flavours really compliment each other, and the banana and almond milk make it really smooth and creamy! I added in a handful of spinach to give it a green boost which was delicious. 
Here's the recipe:

Green Superfood Protein Smoothie

This is such a tasty smoothie, packed with nutrients, which was perfect for my energy boost before the gym! I love spinach, mango and banana together in a smoothie, it gives the smoothie such a creamy consistency and the wheatgrass and hemp protein powder combined are perfect for my extra superfood nutrients!
