SO this smoothie is to die for (and my kids love it) but it's also awesome left overnight and has become my new favourite breakfast when I do this simply because it reminds me of chocolate yogos that I used to eat as a kid! Remember those? It's just the chia seed content that gives it the 'pudding like' consistency as chia seeds are full of extremely beneficial mucilaginous fibre that absorbs liquid and the longer you leave them, the more they absorb! Full of good fats and very tasty to boot!
Ps. I rarely share it with the kids when it's become like a pudding the next day, they just have to miss out!
Chocolate Smoothie/Pudding recipe - serves 3-4 (or two with leftovers for next day healthy chocolate yogo!)
1.5 large bananas (frozen pieces work best)
2 dessertspoons of peanut butter
2 dessertspoons of coconut oil
2 tablespoons of chia seeds
1 tablespoon cacao powder and 1-2 tablespoons of maple syrup or raw honey to sweeten)
4 cups of almond milk (or your preferred milk)
Whizz in high powered blender, have some for brekkie one day and the rest as chocolate 'yogo' the next day!
Yours In Health,
