A chocolate treat that’s so healthy, you can enjoy it for breakfast!
What’s your perfect way to the start the day? With breakfast in bed? Reading the newspaper? Enjoying a cup of coffee? Or maybe indulging in some chocolate? While dessert for breakfast might not be your cup of tea. Chocolate can be the perfect way to start your day.
Chocolate!! Mmm, just the word makes me want to devour some. I could eat chocolate every day. While I don’t always give into those chocolate cravings. Sometimes you just need (yes need) a chocolate treat.
Luckily, not all chocolate treats are unhealthy. Some chocolate can be satisfying and even good for you. Chocolate Banana Smoothie is all that and more! Forget about chocolate milkshakes. This smoothie is loaded with good for you ingredients and it tastes great too!
There’s something about smoothies. Whether you enjoy them with a meal, have them on their own, or have one for breakfast, they are always so refreshing and satisfying.
Chocolate Banana Smoothie is no different. It’s thick, creamy and it actually tastes like dessert. Except this dessert tasting drink is so healthy, you can enjoy it for breakfast. I did the other day!!
If you love the combination of chocolate and banana, you’ll love Chocolate Banana Smoothie. With a creamy, velvety flavour, you can sip away and feel like you’re drinking dessert. And with only five ingredients, you can easily whip this up while you’re going about your morning routine.
The creamy base begins with banana. It makes the smoothie incredibly creamy while adding a tasty banana flavour. Bananas are also full of fiber, antioxidants, and they’re heart healthy too.
Next, comes vanilla Greek yogurt. It enhances the banana’s texture and adds a wonderful vanilla flavour. Plus, Greek yogurt is high in protein and it’s full of good-for-you bacteria. If you don’t have greek yogurt, you can use regular (non-Greek) varieties. Your smoothie will simply be a little thinner, which can be delicious too. It will have more of a chocolate milk consistency.
Of course, you’ll also want to add in some classic smoothie favourites, milk and ice, and you have a creamy and refreshing drink that you can sip away all summer long.
Last, but definitely not least, comes the chocolate. Did you know that cocoa powder is actually incredibly healthy? Cocoa powder, which comes from the cocoa bean, is nutritious and actually has a number of health benefits. It is an antioxidant, can reduce the risk of blood clots, lower high blood pressure, boost cognitive performance, and it’s filled with calcium and potassium. Talk about a wonderful reason to indulge in your chocolate craving!
Start your day with chocolate!! And feel good too! Chocolate Banana Smoothie is the perfect excuse for chocolate in the morning. So, indulge in a tasty dose of chocolate.Print
