Today, I share with you one of my favourite smoothies packed with proteins, energy, potassium and vitamin C which will boost your energy level and last a few hours after taking it. Not only is this smoothie ideal for the morning because of the kickstart it gives you but any other time of the day.  We will call it the Banana Power Smoothie.
