What's great about it

If you want a nutrient-rich, power packed chocolate smoothie - this is it! Cacao is the highest known antioxidant food on the planet. Rich in magnesium, iron, copper, manganese, riboflavin and essential micronutrients for health and vitality. The high flavonoid content of cacao has been scientifically linked to a reduced risk of heart disease, stroke and diabetes.

1/2 small frozen banana, peeled and chopped

1/4  avocado

3/4 cup water

3/4 cup almond or coconut milk

2 tablespoons Healthy Chef Protein

1 tablespoon Naked Mylk Chocolate or raw cacao

pinch of sea salt

1 tablespoon raw honey or maple syrup or a little stevia to taste

1 tablespoon coconut butter or cold pressed coconut oil to blend (optional)

Handful of ice to blend

Cacao nibs and raw melted chocolate for garnish (optional)

Notes and Inspiration

The addition of  Healthy Chef Chocolate Protein can assist with weightloss to help regulate the appetite - it makes this smoothie a complete meal replacement. For weight loss it is recommended you get between 80 – 120 g of protein per day to aid satiety and repair. It can also assist with sports performance and recovery as well as nourish your immune system.
