Chocolate Protein Smoothie

This recipe has become my all time favourite breakfast, especially after a busy morning of working out and teaching. This was inspired by my lovely friend Jo Arthur who also enjoys her chocolate superfood smoothies every morning.

I recommend using a high powered blender to get the consistency of the smoothie really creamy like a super healthy mousse au chocolat. It is really like having a chocolate dessert for breakfast but it gives you all the nourishment you need to maintain your energy levels throughout the day and it is filled with only goodness.

Another advantage: this recipe takes a few minutes, which is good for someone (like me) who prefers not to spend ages preparing a meal:)

This is what you need to put into your blender:

1/2 ripe avocado

1 tpsp chia seeds (soaked in a glass of water for around 20 minutes)

1 cup almond milk (If I don’t have homemade almond milk, I use the Almond Drink by Rude Health)

1 tsp maca powder

1 tsp lucuma powder

1/2 tsp stevia

1/2 cup raw cacao powder

1/2 tsp cinnamon

1 scoop of Sunwarrior Raw unflavoured Protein powder (or any other protein powder of your choice)

Then just blend, pour into your favourite bowl, and sprinkle with toppings of your choice. I like to sprinkle it with a bit of grawnola and organic beepollen for the added crunch.

Enjoy, lovelies!
