Dark Chocolate Smoothie
Smoothies are a great way to pack in as much nutrition as possible. The raw cacao in this recipe makes it feel like a real treat, but remember that cacao is incredibly rich in antioxidants, and is packed with other nutrients, such as iron, magnesium and calcium. It is also a natural mood elevator and anti-depressant, so can really help to kick-start your day!
As with all smoothie recipes, feel free to experiment with the ingredients to find your perfect blend.
- 1/2 banana
- 1 1/2 cups of milk (preferably dairy-free) or water
- 1 tablespoon of ground flax seed
- 1 large handful of spinach or kale
- 1 cup of frozen berries
- 2 tablespoons of raw cacao
- 1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon
- 1 splash of vanilla extract
Simply pop all the ingredients into a blender, blend for 5-10 seconds, then serve and enjoy!
