Chocolate-Banana Smoothie: Good & Good for you! June 15 2015, 0 Comments
Since I'm one of those people who could live on ice cream (and other frozen treats), this is one of my favorite ways to start the day.
But I'm also one of those people who chooses to eat very little sugar (other than fruit) because it feel so much better. Here's a super healthy and absolutely delicious alternative. Hope you enjoy it as much as I do!
- 1 frozen banana (cut in chunks)
- 1 cup coconut unsweetened milk
- 1 tbsp raw, organic Cacao powder
- 1tbsp chia seeds
- ¼ cup chopped raw walnuts
- 1 tsp vanilla
- ½ -1 tsp powdered Stevia (to taste)
- 3-4 ice cubes
- Raw, organic Cacao nibs (for a little crunch)
Put all ingredients (except Cacao nibs) in a high speed blender and mix until smooth. Add ice if you prefer it thicker. (Makes about 12 oz)
Yes, it’s that easy!
I like to eat mine with a spoon (yep, like ice cream) so I make it nice & thick and add cacao nibs for added crunch. But you can make it a little more liquid, skip the nibs and drink it with a straw like a traditional smoothie.
