Super Yum Super Food Smoothie!

Updated on July 19, 2015

Looking for a smoothie to give you a morning boost?

If, like me, you're not up for a full blown meal first thing in the morning, then this may be the smoothie for you!

This smoothie is my morning ritual. Every night, I go to bed looking forward to my morning smoothie <3

Ingredients

  • 1 Banana, Organic, of course!
  • 1/2 Ripe avocado
  • 2.5 cups Any plant-based milk, My fave is coconut milk :-)
  • 2 Tablespoons Cacao
  • 1 Teaspoon Chia seeds
  • 1 Tablespoon Raw Honey, Local and fresh if possible!

Instructions

  1. Build
  2. Blend!

Note:

Sometimes, for extra fibre, I add Psyllium Husk.

If you want this smoothie to be more filling, oats are also a great addition.

And, finally, some days I add Maca powder for reproductive and hormonal health ;-)

What are some of your favourite smoothie ingredients?

      Melissa- Just a suggestion but HP has special sections for you to use for recipes 9Ingredients, Directions, Nutritional Info, etc.). When you edit your Hub, you will see them on the right.

      Use those and your Recipe will be properly cataloged by HP and it will get more exposure.
