Smoothie bowls. What do you think when I say those two words?
Loads of sugar, not much nutrients and perhaps a sweet treat?
Think again Sista! My Cacao and Peanut Butter smoothie is incredibly low in sugar – only natural sugar from the banana – and packed full of fibre, good fats and protein. It’s also devilishly tasty… but don’t take my word for it. Try it for yourself!
50ml of your choice of nut mylk, or water
1 small banana (frozen, overnight)
1 tbsp of raw (organic) cacao
1 tsp of flax seeds
1 tsp of chia seeds
1 tsp of natural peanut butter
½ scoop of protein powder (I use a pea and rice protein but if you are open to dairy option a whey protein is also fine!)
To make this into a smoothie, add a further 100-150ml of water
Add the small frozen banana into the blender / nutri-bullet with your mylk or water. I like to add the water first to ensure that none of the powders stick to the bottom of your blending device!
Add in the cacao, flax seeds, chia seeds, peanut butter and protein powder.
Blend until smooth and creamy.
Pour into your bowl of choice and top with your favourite toppings – like granola, fruit, chia seeds or nuts and seeds.
Feel free to add, change or swap out any of the ingredients! Customise and personalise, do what’s right for your body.
