Frozen Banana & Cacao Smoothie
This banana & cacao smoothie recipe is one of my all-time favourites!
It’s made with frozen bananas, cacao powder, almond butter and a pinch of cinnamon. You can easily add more cacao powder to make the chocolate flavour even more prominent.
It tastes like dessert, but it’s healthy enough to make for breakfast. If you want to add a little protein to this chocolate shake, just add some Veego plant protein to the mix.
- 1 cup almond water.
- 1 frozen banana.
- 2 tablespoons raw cacao powder.
- 2 tablespoons almond butter.
- Pinch of cinnamon.
- 1 serving of chocolate or vanilla protein powder. (optional)
Not only is this chocolate banana smoothie an absolute joy to drink, there are some nutritional benefits too!
Banana is an absolute classic base for all vegan smoothies. Frozen bananas however are an absolute game changer.
Cacao is one of the richest sources of polyphenols and flavanols which have powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.
Here are some other additions you can try that won’t overly change the flavour:
- Hemp seeds
- Flax seeds
- Chia seeds
- Cashew nuts
- Peanut butter
