Banana Chocolate smoothie

Updated: May 25

Smoothies are a great way to enjoy your favourite fruits or have a snack in between meals or if you're daring replace one of your meals. This recipe is tasty, quick and easy to make and if you have a sweet tooth, it's definitely a healthier option to having that chocolate.


Ingredients:

  • 1 banana (you can add more if you prefer)

  • spoon of peanut butter

  • 1/2 tsp honey

  • 1tsp cocoa powder

  • 1/2 tsp chia seeds

  • 1/2 tsp maca powder (optional)

  • 1/3 cup of oats

  • ice cubes

  • 1/2cup milk

Blend all the ingredients together and enjoy :) Chia seeds are agood source of fibre, loaded with antioxidants; they also have more iron than spinach; more potassium than banana and more calcium than milk. Maca powder (whose root its derived from is related to broccoli, kale and cauliflower - guess there's no running away from vegetables :) Maca powder benefits include - energy boost especially if you love working out; and apparently it helps with libido as well (we can neither confirm nor deny this one :) Anyway it contains lots of vitamin C, iron and potassium. Chia seeds and maca powder can be bought at dischem or any health shop. Enjoy the smoothie.
