RECIPE: chocolate-banana breakfast smoothie
Dessert for breakfast? Sign me up! A while back, I was in a rush before leaving for the office in the morning and didn’t have time for any of my usual breakfast options like chia pudding, bircher müsli or oatmeal. Instead, I decided to make use of an overly ripe banana and tossed it into the blender with a whole bunch of other things, that I guessed would keep me full until lunch – or at least for a while. The outcome, a totally vegan chocolate-banana breakfast smoothie, is my new favorite go-to breakfast and I even make it on the weekends, where I have plenty of time. It tastes like liquid dessert and with a whole bunch of healthy ingredients it is the perfect fuel to start the day.
What you’ll need:
– 1 ripe banana
– 2o0 ml almond milk
– 200 ml water
– 2 tsp chia seeds
– 2 tsp raw cocoa powder
– 1 tsp agave sirup (or 2 medjoul dates)
– 2 ice cubes (optional)
Throw everything into a blender and mix well. Top with coconut or fresh berries as desired. For those that also want the smoothie to be a bit more filling: Add 1-2 Tbsp. of oats. That will do the trick!
