You can have the pudding as a breakfast after your morning run or as a snack before your afternoon sessions. The best think is that it it won’t bloat you which you really don’t want to happen before your afternoon training.

Top Tip

I always cut the banana into small chunks before I put in the freezer. If you’re one of those people who prepare their snacks/meals in advance then you can put the banana, kale and avocado into a ziploc bag.
