Dessert for breakfast? Say no more. I’ll just admit it, I have a sweet tooth… finding healthy alternatives to satisfy my “sweet cravings” is a MUST in my life. I also LOVE smoothies – they are easy to make, the options are endless and you can pack them full of nutrients + superfoods! So why not create a sweet tasting, satisfying, yet healthy smoothie that you can feel good about drinking. Enter: Cacao Banana Bliss smoothie. Filling. Nourishing. Vitamins. Minerals. Made from plants.
I choose to use all organic ingredients because, that is my personal preference. I wholeheartedly believe it is better to choose organic where / if possible to avoid exposure to chemicals, pesticides, gmo’s etc. Organic food is something I will never compromise no matter my budget because I really do feel much better when I eat this way. Again, personal preference… eating conventional fruits + veg is better than not eating any at all 🙂 (just wash thoroughly).
Cacao Banana Bliss Smoothie
(Taste like a chocolate mylkshake)
- 2-3 Frozen bananas
- 1-2 Handfuls of spinach
- 1-2 Tbsp. of cacao powder
- 3 Pitted dates
- 1 Tsp. Cacao nibs
- 1 Tsp. Maca powder
- 1 Tbsp. Nut butter (I prefer almond)
- Nut mylk (I like coconut or oat) Use to desired consistency!
Optional add-on’s: Mushroom powders, plant based protein powder (I use sprout living epic vanilla), hemp seeds or any other superfood powders you enjoy that will likely not alter the taste too much.
- Add all ingredients into a blender (I love my Vitamix) and BLEND
- Pour into mason jar, grab a reusable straw and enjoy
Warning – FILLING 🙂
Enjoy for breakfast, lunch, dinner or as a nourishing snack!
