I'm going to say this right off the bat, I'm not usually an advocate for smoothies, I would rather people ate the actual food. However, my hubby and I are are both struggling with fatigue and proper nutrition due to a hectic schedule. The past week, breakfast smoothies have saved us. This is a smoothie intended to replace a whole meal. (So don't make this and then eat!). This flavour combination is my hubby's favourite so I thought I would share!
P.S. The photo shows a half empty mason jar. It actually makes more. My hubby went hog wild on the smoothie before I could get the photo done. Can you tell he enjoys it??
1 frozen banana, peeled and cut into pieces
2-3 ice cubes
1 tbsp organic sunflower butter (nothing added!!)
1 tbsp MCT oil
1 tbsp Great Lakes Gelatin Collagen Hydrolysate
3 dates/1-2 tbsp maple syrup (Totally optional, I find the banana adds a lot of sweetness and prefer it without the sweetner)
1 tbsp cocoa powder (find organic fair-trade stuff or use raw cacao powder)
8 oz coconut milk
1. Toss everything in your blender (or bullet!) and blend until smooth!
