When you don’t have time to make elaborate breakfast recipes, and want to be a little more on the healthy side, a great smoothie recipe is the way to go. Frozen banana chunks balance out the bitter cocoa with their natural sweetness and creamy peanut butter adds some body to this breakfast, while chia seeds offer even more nutritional benefits.
1 Large Frozen Banana
1 Heaping Tbsp. of Cocoa Powder
1 1/2 Tbsp. Creamy Peanut Butter (I used Justin’s Organic Peanut Butter)
1 Tbsp. Chia Seeds
1/4-1/2 Cup Water or Non-Dairy Milk
Place all ingredients in a blender, add more liquid if needed, and puree until smooth. Let still for 3-5 minutes so that the chia seeds are easier for your body to digest and so that you absorb their nutrients better.
