Chocolate walnut smoothie

I am thinking... What better way to start the week than with chocolate? And what if this delicious breakfast also contained some delicious nutrients that are oh so good for you?

I am going to keep this short and sweet.
It has been my go to smoothie during this crazy busy week, takes 1 minute to make and it's like having chocolate ice cream for breakfast. You're welcome.

Maybe keep it in mind for mornings when it is not 2 degrees outside ( she thinks.. Shivering while waiting for her train..).

In addition to pure cacao powder with its antioxidant goodness and magnesium burst to help your nervous system work efficiently, you get healthy fats from walnuts and avocado ( you will not taste it, but it'll make your smoothie super creamy...), a hit of potassium from banana, sweetness and a hand to keep your energy levels steady thanks to cinnamon, and some protein deliciousness from almond butter ( and again, walnuts). Oh, I forgot your 1 of 5 a day with spinach ( my favourite to add to
smoothies as there is no taste).

So what are you waiting for?

Ingredients (serves 1)
1 frozen banana chopped
1 handful spinach
1 tbsp almond butter
1 handful walnuts
2tsp cinnamon
1tbsp protein powder (optional, I use Pulsin' Brown Rice protein)
1tsp vanilla extract
Half ripe avocado
1cup almond milk ( or any other plant milk) 

Pop in your blender and whizz it up!

Top with crushed walnuts if you wish...x

Now grab a spoon and enjoy...

Happy Monday!
