FoodSince changing my diet last year (read more about my gluten and dairy free diet here) I've been meaning to try Boiglan Supergreens powders as they've been recommended to me by a few people. The powders are a super easy way to boost your smoothies, breakfasts or juices with extra nutrients that your body needs. I recently got my hands on a few including the Cacao Boost powder which tastes like chocolate but one 10g serving is equivalent to 14 portions of fruit and vegetables. What?
Healthy Chocolate Chunky Monkey Smoothie
This smoothie tastes extremely decadent but contains only natural wholesome ingredients. It is one of those chuck it all in a blender and enjoy recipes that anyone can do!
You can buy the powders directly from the Bioglan website and from Holland and Barrett. I hope you love this smoothie as much as I do.
What you'll need
One ripe banana
A heaped tsp of pure organic nut butter, I used peanut butter
One cup of almond milk or other dairy free milk
One heaped tsp of the Supergreens Cacao power
Some ice cubes
Pop all the ingredients in the blender keeping the ice to the middle and blend for a minute until smooth and think. Pop some slices of banana on the top to make it look pretty and you're done. I told you it was easy!
This smoothie tasted exactly like a peanut butter milkshake and it didn't even need any extra sweetener. If you like things extra sweet you could add in a little maple syrup but I like it as it is. The ingredients of the powder are pretty impressive too...
Certified Organic Cacao Powder, Pea Protein Isolate 90%, Prebiotic Inulin, Apple Powder, Kale Powder, Spirulina Powder, Chlorella Powder, Bromelain Powder, Chia Ground, Shitake Powder,Wheat Grass Powder, Barley Grass Powder, Flaxseed Powder, Spinach Powder, Broccoli Powder, Camu Camu Powder, clove extract Ground, Natural Chocolate Flavour, Stevia, lactobacillus, bifidobacterium
That's a lot of fruit and veggie goodness!
Let me know if you give this a try. I'd love to hear your thoughts. BTW I totally did lick that peanut butter off the table when I was done photographing this.
