Best Banana & Chocolate Smoothie Sensation
Words & recipe: By Rachel Grunwell
Get a spoon at the ready. You’ll need it to dig this beauty out of the jar. This is a delicious smoothie treat. But really, it’s a heavenly decadent dessert too. You choose.
The sweetness comes from fruit. So there’s no added nasties. However, you might want to share it with someone. Otherwise, you’ll likely eat the whole thing on your own – like I did!
It’s full of great ingredients that are good to taste but are also good skin food too – like almond milk and avocado. So really you should make this to make your skin glow. As if you need another reason, through, right 😉
Here’s the recipe:
Put the following in a jar – about a cup of Pure Delish no-grain-ola. Then to prepare the banana and nut layer: Put the following in your NutriBullet: 2 frozen bananas, 1 teaspoon of honey, 1 tablespoon of Pic’s cashew butter, ½ cup of almond milk, ½ teaspoon of almond oil. Blitz it all up within about 10 seconds. Then pour this into the jar. For the top layer put the following in your NutriBullet: 1 frozen banana, 3 ice-cubes, ½ avocado, 1 tablespoon of cacao and blitz this. Then pour the chocolate later on top. Enjoy it as it is. Or if you want you can top it with cacao nibs and a couple of lavender flowers to show off 😉
