Tink Jayne's Smoothie Snack Pot Healthy Recipe for fitness dieting and a good lifestyle

Looking for a healthier snack thats a little more yummy  than of a handful of tasteless seeds and totally bland dried fruit? Then I’ve got just the thing!

Much like the rest of the world, this week I jumped on January’s ‘Get Healthy’ bandwagon. I want to make 2016 an all round healthier year for me and I decided to start by doing something about my snacking habits. I love eating chocolate and cake and I could never fully give them up, BUT I realised I needed to cut down on them. I needed to find a snack that is healthy, filing but sweet enough to satisfy my sugar cravings.

Introducing Smoothie Snack Pots!

As you can probably tell from these Smoothie posts, I love playing around with my blender and coming up with new Smoothie recipes, and so using these adorable little Lakeland Milk Bottles that I bought forever and ever ago, I whipped up these cute little mini smoothies snacks…

The Mini Winter Berry Smoothie
Last month I shared this winter smoothie recipe which I got great feedback on. To be honest, it’s mostly just a load of frozen berries, but with the added soya its tastes amazing, a bit like a fruity milkshake:
A handful of frozen blueberries
A handful of frozen blackberies
A handful of frozen raspberries
1 chopped banana
300ml soy milk
2 tbsp of fat free yoghurt
A drizzle of honey.
Blend all together for 40-60 seconds and you’ve got yourself a smoothie. I made one batch and poured it into two of the little bottles. I kept one as a smoothie, but with the other I created my first ever little snack pot by topping it with Oats and Chia Seeds as well as fat free yoghurt.

The Peanut-nana Latte
I’ve shared various Banana Latte Smoothie recipes on this blog, they are my fave, but this is the first time I’ve shared the Peanut-nana one:
2 chopped banana’s
1 scoop of peanut butter
300ml of Soya milk
2 tbsp of fat free yoghurt
1 tsp of coffee
A squirt of honey
And a sprinkle of cinnamon powder.
Once blended for 40-60 seconds, I divided into two milk bottles, and again, I left one as a plain smoothie, whilst the other I topped with healthy treats. I added a layer of Oats and Chai seeds, some yoghurt, then topped with a few slices of banana and sprinkled some more cinnamon powder.

I left these overnight in the fridge, where they thickened ever so slightly. I then enjoyed the Peanut-nana Latte for breakfast (easily my favourite of the two, it is soooooooo yummy) and the Mini Winter Berry made a fantastic afternoon snack when I was craving something a little sweet. The snack pots I tucked into it with a spoon, eating it like a dessert. Whereas the smoothies I’ve enjoyed as a scrumptious drink.

These are so handy to pop in your bag and take to work with you, which is what as I have been doing this week. These would also be great for kids lunch boxes, picnics, parties and they make a great breakfast on-the-go.

UPDATE: The Team over at furniture-work have picked this recipe for their Healthy Desk Recipe project, coming very soon! Eeek!
