This recipe helps to satisfy your sweet tooth, while providing you with slow releasing energy in the form of carbohydrates to correctly fuel your training sessions.
For Exercise Day
This is ideal for a snack before a training session or as a quick recovery option. Carbohydrates from the banana will provide energy for your training, while protein from the yoghurt and peanut butter will promote recovery post-exercise.
The banana is a great source of potassium, which is needed for fluid balance and nerve system functioning. The peanut butter is a source of unsaturated fat that helps boost “good” cholesterol and lower “bad” cholesterol in your blood, lowering your risk of heart disease or stroke. Unsaturated fats also help to absorb fat soluble vitamins A,D,E and K.
You can use crunchy or smooth peanut butter - whichever you prefer! You could also try other nut butters, jams or honey too!
