This ba­nana, yo­gurt and peanut but­ter smoothie will build mus­cle

Some­times the tough­est bit of bulk­ing isn’t lift­ing the weights but down­ing the calo­ries needed for growth. Thank­fully, nutri­tion­ist Scott Bap­tie is here to help. As well as mus­cle-build­ing pro­tein and abs-friendly healthy fats, peanut but­ter con­tains a va­ri­ety of other fit­ness-boost­ing nu­tri­ents – and it’s sim­ply one of the best tast­ing things on the planet.

1Peanut but­ter is rich in niacin, which will pro­tect your mus­cle tis­sue from the dam­age caused by ex­er­cise.

2Banana con­tains high lev­els of vi­ta­min B6, which helps the body break down and di­gest pro­tein.

3Oats are a source of car­bo­hy­drate, which tops up your glyco­gen stores to fuel new mus­cle growth.

4Greek yo­gurt pro­vides pro­tein to help re­pair tears in your mus­cle tis­sue fol­low­ing a gym ses­sion.

5Ginger has an­ti­in­flam­ma­tory prop­er­ties that help to re­duce post-ex­er­cise mus­cle sore­ness.
