A Fruit Milkshake
Bananas are a high sugar (fructose) fruit so I always advise buying a small one. A small banana without skin weighs in at 75g approx.
Bananas are an excellent source of potassium. Potassium is an electrolyte and is very useful for fluid re-balancing after exercise and alcohol consumption. They are also an excellent source of B6 which is critical for mood and the nervous system. There is good ‘pectin’ fibre in bananas, helping to sooth the gut and keep the bowel healthy.
Strawberries are an excellent source of Vitamin C, Potassium, fibre and flavonoids and are really tasty in a shake. Good B1 content for nail health ladies! The flavonoids offer protection for anyone with inflammation.
Tahini is sesame seed paste, an excellent source of mono-unsaturated fats and minerals with good B1 and B2. The lignin content helps cholesterol management and constipation.
I use coconut milk or almond will, unsweetened in shakes as a nice break from dairy.

For those who can tolerate cream and get hungry at certain times, you can use a dollop of whipped cream on top to satisfy appetite, especially if you are on Keto <20g carb/day.
