Banana Snickers Shake



I am always looking for different combinations and recipe ideas to make smoothies more interesting to drink and also adding ingredients that provide nutritional and health benefits too. One of the books that I recently discovered  is Green Kitchen Smoothies written by David Frenkiel and Luise Vindahl.David and Luise live in Stockholm and are the creators of a food blog called Green Kitchen Stories.  This recipe is inspired by one of the recipes from the book.

I made my smoothie in my Optimum 9400 which is a powerful blender that grinds, pulses, chops, grates, cooks and makes icecreams at a flick of a switch. You can read a review about my Froothie Optimum 9400 here.
At the moment the Optimum 9400 is available at a special offer introductory price of £339 which includes a 30 day trial so that you can return it back postage free if you are not totally satisfied with it. I love options like this because I feel that if I do invest in a gadget I want peace of mind that I can be100 percent happy with it. Also being a brand ambassador for Froothie any one purchasing through this post can you can get Extra 2 years warranty to get this use the code "Special Ambassador Offer" on purchase

  1. Sounds like the perfect way to start the day - I make something very similar after a run with coconut water instead of filtered water. It keeps the hunger pains away :)

  6. I'm going to try this for the boys this weekend! They have a real thing for milkshakes at the mo and I think smoothies would be just as readily accepted if they were as tasty as this! H x
