a healthy rich & creamy chocolate nut shake

Serves 2 

The frozen banana makes this shake rich and creamy.  If you don’t like the taste of banana, half an avocado will work just as well.   The protein from the almond butter leaves you feeling satisfied and full. The maca powder is rich in mineral content and a natural hormone balancer for both men and women. Raw cacao is full of healthy antioxidants.  

If you would like a little chocolate chip crunch in your shake add 2 tablespoons of raw cacao nibs at the end and blitz for 5 – 10 seconds.

ingredients:

1 medium frozen banana

2 Tbsp raw cacao or cocoa powder

2 Tbsp almond butter (or any unsalted nut butter)

1 Tbsp maca powder

1 Tbsp maple syrup (or 2 fresh dates)

1 cup almond milk

tiny pinch of Himalayan salt

preparation:

Place the banana, cacao powder, almond butter, maca powder, maple syrup, almond milk and a pinch of salt in the blender.  Mix on high-speed until you have a smooth consistency.

Pour into 2 glasses, sprinkle with cacao powder and enjoy.
