For my breakfast this morning I made my first ever homemade smoothie - it was delicious! I don't know why I've never made them before.
I got the recipe for this smoothie from http://www.hellifignaw.com/. This particular smoothie is called 'Peanut Butter Delight' (ingredients shown in the photo above). I've worked it out to be 308 kcal per serving (and 361 kcal if you add 1 tbsp of cocoa powder). It's pretty filling and quite a big serving too - makes just under a pint!
I originally made it without the cocoa powder but when I tried it I thought the banana was a little too overpowering, so I blended in the cocoa powder afterwards. I may have put a bit too much in though, so next time I'll probably only use 1 tsp of cocoa powder instead of 1 tbsp.
I highly recommend you all try this smoothie! It's great for people who have a sweet tooth but don't want to pig out on fatty, chocolaty treats. I shall definitely be making many more smoothies from http://www.hellifignaw.com! There's loads on there and they all sound delicious!

I'm posting this to keep myself motivated. If I can see what I was and what I never want to look like again, it may help me stay on track on days where I'm struggling with cravings and lack of motivation.
