It seems that everything we consume must come in all sorts of single-use plastic packaging or containers but little do we realise that we can reduce this waste to zero. I love my protein smoothies and lately I’ve been making sure to make them as eco-sustainable as possible. The biggest challenge was to avoid almond milk packaging and I managed to replace it by just adding 50g of roasted almonds, some honey and water.
Today I made a fresh summer smoothie which not only tastes great but also give me a good protein boost. It only takes 5 minutes to prepare, just put in all ingredients listed below in a blender and mix for 1 minute.
- 2 teaspoons peanut butter (home-made)
- 3 slices melon
- 1 peach
- 1 banana
- Chia seeds
- 5 ice cubes
- Grated ginger
- 50g almonds
- Maple Syrup
* All ingredients above were bought off the counter without any plastic packaging.
