This smoothie is delicious, rich and creamy and tastes like a chocolate milkshake (with some greens snuck in there too) but is a lot tastier, 100% natural and packed with nutrients and protein. I’ve become obsessed with adding avocado to my smoothie to make them really thick and tasty; but lets be honest avocados are great in any form. Rich in selenium and vitamin E, brazil nuts from the milk add to the creamy taste.
Cacao is the raw, unprocessed form of the cocoa bean and raw, organic cacao is one of the best superfoods. High in antioxidants, essential minerals and vitamins, it also releases endorphins into the brain to boost your mood.
A spoonful each of maca and chia seeds is a great energy boost for the mornings!
I like to eat my smoothies in a big bowl with a spoon, I find it a little easier to digest and feels very satisfying for breakfast sprinkle with any seeds, homemade granola, or superfoods of choice.
