A combo I had never thought of before, I discovered the joy of Bananas and Lime in a lovely restaurant called Morning Glory in the beautiful Hoi An, Vietnam whilst on my honeymoon. I wanted to repeat the taste, however as bananas have a high glycaemic load I decided to put a twist on it and add them into a protein smoothie to reduce the GL, but still get all the benefits of this lovely fruit. It is also a good way of increasing your protein intake and makes a great post exercise drink, with the protein for muscle repair and the high potassium content in bananas to help replace lost electrolytes, along with the electrolytes in the himalyan salt. And it tasted great, the extra magic is in the addition of the lime, delicious! Here is the recipe:

Cashew Nut milk or milk of your choice (I blended 150g cashews [soaked overnight] with 750ml water)
Pinch pink Himalayan Salt
1 scoop protein powder (I used Sun Warrior - Warrior blend in Natural flavour)
1 large ripe banana
Pinch of Cinnamon - to your taste
1 tsp maca powder (optional)
A squeeze of lime juice

Just blend everything together and serve
