Recipe: Healthy Chocolate Smoothie
This is one of my favourite breakfasts. I love a smoothie for breakfast and with these ingredients I can have the chocolate that’s always been my weakness but keep my blood sugar stable with all these healthy ingredients. It also makes a great afternoon snack. The only sugar comes from the half banana.
Ingredients – Serves 1
1/2 a banana, peeled and frozen
200ml filtered water
1-2 heaped teaspoons of raw cacao powder (depending on your personal taste)
1 scoop of protein powder (I use a plain pea protein)
1 tsp-1 Tbs of chia seeds, coconut butter/coconut oil, nut butter or LSA
Blend all ingredients together. Pour and enjoy.
Alternative ingredients: Use 1/2 cup of mixed berries instead of the raw cacao powder.
Tip: Smoothies are ideal to add superfoods or powdered supplements to. I often add a teaspoon of reshi mushroom powder (for immune system balance), powdered greens, coconut oil, MCT oil, gelatin or a probiotic powder for healthy digestive function.
