Dark Chocolate Smoothie
You are hot and sticky and in no mood to cook. You can't keep driving through the drive through to get those icy coffee drinks, the waistline will not allow it. What to do?
Dark Chocolate Smoothie is your answer.
There is one catch though...there is no chocolate in it.
The addition of blueberries deepens the colour of the shake. The Carob powder in it gives it it's flavour.
HERE IS THE RECIPE:
1 frozen Banana (optional)
Canadian Wild Blueberries ( Frozen of fresh)
2 tsp Carob Powder
1 tsp Chia Seeds
Kale or Spinach, 1/2 cup.
Almond Milk (Vanilla or Original, but unsweetened is best)
You have your greens, fruit, protien all in once refreshing smoothie!
Now if you want to add a little kick, add a tiny bit of instant espresso powder.
You don't have to compromise your health just to stay cool. You CAN have your smoothie and drink it too!
