When it comes to breakfast there are really only one of two things I like to make every morning - a generous yogurt, fruit and granola parfait, or a filling milk-based smoothie loaded with enough ingredients to take me through the till lunch time.
This smoothie right here has pretty much become my go-to smoothie on most mornings. Its so easy to throw together I could probably make it with both my eyes closed, and I love that there are days when I wake up craving it. Oh and if you love the combination of peanut butter and chocolate, the salty with the sweet, then you'll forever want to make this on most mornings like I do. It's exactly like drinking a sort-of-dessert for breakfast, yet with no added sugar and just the right amount of sweetness.
The best part? It really is 'healthy'.
Healthy Chocolate Peanut Butter Breakfast Smoothie
1 cup of milk of choice (I use Coconut Dream Unsweetened drinking coconut milk)
1 medium banana
1 tbsp peanut butter (I use Whole Earth Crunchy Organic)
1 tsp raw cacao powder (I use Superfoods Organic Raw Peruvian Cacao Powder)
1 tsp ground flax seed
Pinch of cinnamon powder
A few drops of pure coconut oil (optional)
Put all the ingredients together in a blender and blend till smooth. Adjust consistency with more milk if preferred. Pour into a tall glass and enjoy immediately!
