Pineapple, Pistachio & Mint Protein Smoothie

This is my go-to post-workout smoothie for anyone looking to boost their health and recover from an intense gym session. It’s so delicious you’d never think that it contains over 25 grams of protein and sneaks in 2 portions of fruit and 2 portions of vegetables! Since using PERFORM I haven't been sore after any of my gym sessions. And the addition of extra superfoods such as pineapple, courgette and pistachios in this smoothie help to make it even more nutrient dense!



1 scoop PERFORM Madagascan Vanilla

1 banana (chopped and frozen)

1 cup ripe pineapple chunks
