Chocolate, Hazelnut Butter, Chia Seed, Maca Banana Smoothie


I love a good smoothie for breakfast. They are so delicious, especially when the weather turns up the heat or when you are on run and need something portable and super simple to make. I often triple the recipe and store it in the fridge, ready to go over a few mornings of a busy week. It’s that easy.

Stuck for breakfast tomorrow? There’s a good chance you will have these ingredients, so give this delicious recipe a go!

Further Food Nutritionist Commentary:

Frozen banana and hazelnut butter provide a dairy-free and rich creaminess to smoothies. Cacao is rich in flavonoids, a potent antioxidant that is powerful in the fight against cancer and cardiovascular disease. Chia seeds provide fiber, protein, healthy fats and a host of essential minerals, including manganese, magnesium, calcium and phosphorus. Maca is an ancient Peruvian root that is making waves recently for its potential to help balance hormones.
