I just love smoothies. They are so easy to make and you can add so many health and beauty boosting ingredients all in the one recipe. You can spice them up as well with ginger, cinnamon, cardamom, nutmeg or your favorite herbs such as peppermint, spearmint or lemongrass.
This guilt-free raw cacao smoothie is just loaded with health and beauty boosting goodness from these delicious ingredients.
You will need
- 1 medium sized banana
- 1 small avocado
- 2 tablespoons raw cacao powder
- 1 tablespoon maca powder
- 1 teaspoon maple syrup (optional)
- 1 teaspoon natural vanilla essence
- ½ cup coconut milk
- Sprinkling of cinnamon or nutmeg
- Ice cubes
How to make
Cut the banana in slices and use some of the slices to line a mason jar. Scoop out the avocado flesh and place in a blender with the remaining banana and other ingredients into a blender. Pour into the jar and garnish with chopped nuts (only if you are not allergic) or you could garnish with blueberries, mint or shavings of coconut flesh. Delish!
