I love smoothies, especially on a hot summers day like today here in Melbourne, Australia. I also love chocolate. It makes me happy. But sugary chocolate leaves me feeling lethargic and foggy headed, which is why I love this smoothie recipe so much. It’s packed full of anti-oxidants and tastes like it should be naughty, but it is in fact free from nasty refined sugars. This Choco-Berry Smoothie is the real deal – and it tastes yummo!

So if you want to begin your day in the right way, or simply need a healthy sweet-fix, then this smoothie is for you.

Sugar Free, Vegan, Gluten Free

(Serves 1)

Ingredients 

1 small frozen banana (or half a large one)
1/2 cup frozen blueberries
1 cup of almond milk
1 tsp natural nut butter of choice (I like to use Mayver’s Cacao Spread which is available at Coles in Australia)
1 tsp cacao powder
1 tsp honey/maple syrup (raw organic)
2-3 ice cubes (optional)

Method

Chop frozen banana into chunks. Add everything to the blender and blend until smooth.

Top up with extra almond milk if needed.
