I love smoothies especially when they are truly good for me. So I am sharing my favorite good for me smoothie. Using Cacao powder adds a yummy chocolate taste plus fiber and proetin, without added sugars!! I also use chocolate stevia, it sweetens and adds chocolate flavor but no sugars!!
Alot of people use protein powders and such to add protein in the smoothie, I use tofu, it thickens the smoothie and adds protien!!
The almond milk, almond meal and nut butter add flavor thickness and nutrition!!
I love chocolate banana flavor so I toss in the banana!! Try it, enjoy it, love it, then VOTE for it!
Step 1: Almond Milk
I like to use 1 cup of unsweetened almond milk! So pour a cup of almond milk into your blender! use less for a thicker smoothie or more for a thinner smoothie!
Step 2: The Banana!
Put a bannana in your blender! dice it, slice it or just toss it in!
Step 3: Nutty!
Add 1/4 cup of almond meal (ground almonds) 2 tablespoons of Cacao Powder (good for you chocolate) 3 tablespoons of peanut butter or any other butter like sunflower or Almond, you could even use Nutella if you want a super chocolate experiance!
Step 4: Stevia
I then add 10 or so drops of chocolate stevia. Using stevia means no added sugars!!
Step 5: Tofu Protein
For added proetin and yummy thickness I cube up an ounce or two of ToFu. Toss it in, toss it in!!
Step 6: Ice If You Please
Some times I ice and some times I don't. If you choose to ice dump 2 cups in the blender and turn it on!! Blend for 3 or 4 min. and brink your yummy good for you smoothie!
