It seems like there is a theme right now in my recipes where I use two particular ingredients: bananas and chocolate, and my many ways in which I have the combo for breakfast! 😉
This recipe came about by some morning creativity when I realized I was out of blueberries, and only had banana to work with for my morning smoothie. Inspired by some spices that I used in a recent Indian feast I cooked, I made a chai-chocolate banana smoothie! It also happened to be on Valentines Day that I did this, so it was a nice love gesture to myself to have a treat for breakfast.
This is what I put in the smoothie:
- 1 banana
- 3 medjool dates
- 2 tbsp raw cacao
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp cardamon
- 1 pinch nutmeg
- about a 1/2 cup organic soy milk (add more or less to get the consistency you want!)
Method: put all the ingredients in the blender, and blend! Add more of the spices, if you like, to get a stronger flavour.
Enjoy dessert for breakfast guilt-free! This is a picture of me starting my day off right! 🙂
