Recipe: Healthy Salted Caramel Smoothie
With an active lifestyle, smoothies are often my go-to for a quick breakfast or post-workout pick me up. Looking to consistently nourish my body to balance my endocrine and metabolic systems, I ensure my plant based protein is firstly, organic, and then secondly, tastes delicious when whizzed up with some of my most-loved adaptogens ands whole food favourites!
Sunwarrior has been one of my staple pantry products for years. Since I steer clear of dairy, for digestive and hormonal imbalance reasons, the protein powder I use has to be plant based and able to support my active body's needs. The Plant Based Classic Plus has been my repeat order of choice and never disappoints in being delicious, creamy and easy on the tummy. Using a protein blend of organic brown rice, pea, quinoa and chia, there is 18g of protein and the essential Amino Acids your body needs in each scoop.

I – like many of you! – have a bit of a sweet tooth, so try at every opportunity to give a healthier twist to my most craved flavours. This salted caramel smoothie, answers all of my mouth-watering desires. Using the fibrous, nourishing benefits of Medjool Dates for the rich caramel flavour, frozen banana with Sunwarrior Vanilla Plant-Based Protein for the creamy base, Maca Powder for its nutty taste and hormonally balancing benefits (it's great for those with PCOS) and of course, Pink Himalayan Salt for the satisfying palette finisher, this combination is all kinds of goodness!
300-400ml non-dairy milk – I like Nutty Bruce
2x pitted Medjool Dates
1x Frozen Banana
1/2 Tbsp Organic Maca Powder
A good shake of Pink Himalayan Salt
Throw all ingredients together into a NutriBullet and whizz until fully combined.
Depending on your choice of consistency, you may fancy adding a little more nut milk for a tall smoothie, or keep it thick for a yummy smoothie bowl option!
This smoothie is so delicious you'll want to serve it cold and drink immediately!
