1 large frozen banana
½ cup frozen cauliflower
1/2 cup frozen courgette
1tbsp ground flaxseeds
1tbsp cacao powder
100ml almond milk
Optional: 1 tbsp almond butter (I prefer to drizzle on top)
Optional: 1 tsp agave nectar/honey
Simply blend all the ingredients and enjoy.
The frozen veg makes the smoothie extra thick and keeps it refreshingly cold for longer!
You can also make this into a great post-work out smoothie by adding natural or chocolate protein powder.
Nutrition tip: Smoothies are a great way to pack more vegetables into your diet. It is said they also allow you to absorb the nutrients more readily, being easier to digest than ‘hard food’. Winning all round.
