chocolate orange smoothie

Fancy something decadent and comforting on a gloomy autumn day? Then try this delicious smoothy.

 I do tend to use the ‘bung it’ method of food preparation – i.e. just throw ingredients together and adjust until the product is just right. So the ingredients below are approximate, but you can adjust quantities according to taste and the ingredients you have available.

 

 

INGREDIENTS

2 ripe bananas (soft and squishy with brown spots is best)

juice of 2 oranges

1 dessertspoon of raw cacao (you could substitute cocoa powder)

sweetener of choice – agave, honey or 2 dates

*1 heaped dessertspoon of almond butter

*pure water to blend to required consistency (start off with small amount and add more if required)

*alternatively – use almond milk or any other nut milk

DIRECTIONS

> Place all ingredients in a blender and process until smooth

> add more water to get required consistency

Not only is this delicious but it is also very healthy, so you can indulge and feel smug that you nourishing your body at the same time!

So why not give this recipe a go and let me know what you think.
