[RECIPE] Smoothie: Banana Pineapple Oat

This is another common smoothie that I make. Identical to the banana oat one I make but just with added pineapple.

Ingredients
Flavourless or vanilla whey (1 scoop)
Bananas (x2)
Raw oats (100g) (3.5oz)
Pineapple slices (x4) 
Milk (500ml) (17oz)

    Actions
    Everything is thrown into a blender and blended well. Couldn't be simpler.


    Final words
    Lots of fibre from the oats
    Lots of vitamin C from the pineapple
    Smoothie contains at least 50 grams of protein.
    Freeze the banana and pineapple and have icy shakes on hot days.
    I avoid green or slightly yellow bananas. They make the smoothie bitter.
    The pineapple slices I get from a tin. For me it's cheaper, more convenient to use.

    [RECIPE] Smoothie: Banana Oat

    This is my most common shake I make. A simple banana flavour with great texture and taste.

    Forage
    1 scoop flavourless or vanilla whey
    2 ripe bananas
    100g raw oats
    500ml milk (give or take depending on the oats brand, some absorb more liquid than others)

    Actions
    Everything is thrown into a blender and blended well. Couldn't be simpler.


    Final words
    Shake gives lots of fibre and is a good quick way to get your oats into you.
    Contains at least 50 grams of protein.
    Sometimes I freeze the bananas and have icy shakes on hot days.
    I avoid green or slightly yellow bananas. They make the shake bitter.
