Waya Theresia is a friend of mine. She's the queen behind Omamma Brownies and she's a Kitchen Genius. She creates new recipes in her free time or whenever she feels like to, and she's always generously willing to share her Kitchen Wisdom to me (and now to you too).
This Healthy Banana Smoothie is a special request from me as I love banana and it's a very good pre-workout meal, but sadly my mouth just can't accept banana's texture and it gives me gag reflects every single time I try to swallow. So I asked my best friend to share this healthy pre-workout meal to me.
Not only to boost your energy, this banana smoothie is a real winner nutritiously. It is abundant in minerals and vitamins; it also contains a source of healthy calories, fibre, and protein. This healthy drink can help you to avoid muscle cramps during your workout session.
