This protein Weetabix smoothie not only makes for a delicious breakfast, but it’s also so filling and nutritious. 

Weetabix alone contains many benefits, but when you combine it with other fresh nutritious ingredients, this smoothie becomes packed with nutrients and benefits.

Here’s an overview:

  1. Rich in Fiber: Weetabix bars, bananas, and apples provide dietary fiber, aiding in digestion, promoting a feeling of fullness, and helping you poop.
  2. Energy Boosting: The combination of carbohydrates from Weetabix, banana, and apple provides a quick and sustained energy source, making this smoothie ideal for breakfast.
  3. Good Source of Protein: The smoothie contains 17.6g of protein per serving, which is enough to keep satiated and feeling full for hours.
  4. Heart-Healthy Fats: Unsweetened peanut butter contains healthy fats, beneficial for heart health and overall well-being.
  5. Rich in Vitamins and Minerals: Ingredients like banana and apple are high in vitamins such as Vitamin C and B6, and minerals like potassium, supporting overall health.

Smoothie Variations & Recipe Notes

Weetabix tastes quite bland, which means it mixes well with many different flavors.

I have tested numerous different variations of this smoothie because I simply love Weetabix in my smoothie!

Some delicious variations of this smoothie you could try include:

  1. Berry-Licious: Swap the apple for 1/2 cup of mixed berries for a tangy antioxidant-rich smoothie.
  2. More Protein: Add a scoop of vanilla protein powder for a boost of protein. This is particularly useful if you are working out, and need more protein in your diet.
  3. No Banana Variation: Not everybody likes bananas, I get it! Swap the banana for pineapple, mango, or avocado for a lower-sugar smoothie.
  4. Green Infusion: Add some nutritious greens. You can either add fresh leafy greens, or 1-2 nests of frozen greens.
  5. Nut-Free Version: For a nut-free smoothie, swap the peanut butter for flaxseeds or chia seeds. You can also use oats.

Overnight Weetabix Smoothie:

I tried this recently, and I found it very useful in the morning when I am in a rush.

Here’s how to make an overnight Weetabix smoothie:

  1. Using a bowl or an air-tight container, crush the Weetabix and mix it with the milk, and cinnamon.
  2. Using fresh banana instead of frozen, peel and slice the banana, as well as finely dice the apple. Dollop the peanut butter.
  3. Gently mix the apple and banana into the Weetabix mix. Close the lid of the container, or cover the bowl if using with foil.
  4. Refrigerate.
  5. The next morning, add the whole mixture into a blender and blend for 2 minutes.
