Mother's Day Breakfast in Bed

 

Raw Chocolate and Banana Power Smoothie 


Chocolate and Banana Smoothie We love this smoothie because it combines the superfood goodness of raw cacao with that all-important Omega-from the chia seeds and magnesium from the almonds and pumpkin seeds. Now that's a smoothie with a healthy dose of natural goodness! With all these important nutrients included, this smoothie is sure to boost your mum's morning.  

 

 

Ingredients: 

Smoothie Ingredients

  • 1 ½ bananas (or 3 mini bananas like we used!) 
  • 1 ½ cups of almond milk 
  • 1 35g bar of Coco Mylk Ombar chocolate   
  • tbsp chia seeds 
  • 1 tbsp pumpkin seeds
  • tbsp almond butter 
  • 1 pitted Medjool date 
  • 1 bag of Coco Mylk Ombar Buttons  

Instructions: 

1. First, break up your chocolate into chunks, place in a heatproof bowl and place over a pot of simmering (but not boiling) water. Stir and watch the chocolate gently melt. This is our favourite bit, getting to watch the chocolate slowly melt. Yum! Be careful not to overheat it or you'll damage its raw nutritional goodness.
