So lovely people, I have been eating ‘cleaner’ in 2014. Having a smoothie every morning with tons of fruits. Today is a lovely sunny Irish Saturday. Boyfriend is mildly hungover and was about to reach for a cup of coffee, while I was flicking through Anya Ladra’s detox book. Quickly I whipped this smoothie together, which is suppose to be an alternative to a cup of coffee because of it’s stimulating properties. It will give you energy! Rob’s words before trying the smoothie ” That’s not going to stop me from having coffee!” After having a sip : ” Hmmm this is delicious…what’s in it again? Can I have some more?”
This is a cacao rich yet very fresh drink . You can drink as much as you fancy without any coffee rush.
- 3 ripe bananas, peeled
- seeds and juice from one passion fruit ( you can do without this )
- 175g / 1 generous cup frozen berries, thawed ( I used a mix of blueberries and raspberries)
- 2 table spoon of cacao powder ( I added a bit more, you can’t go wrong)
- 1 table spoon agave nectar or coconut sugar
- 400ml water
Blend all the ingredients together and enjoy!
Note: If you have never tried coconut sugar give it a go. It tastes like caramel or fudge. And it’s a guilt-free sugar! Yumm! Here is a link from H&B but you can buy it much cheaper in ethnic stores.
Thanks for looking and come back soon! X
