Cacao and Banana Smoothie

This smoothie makes a great breakfast or snack, and takes minutes to prepare. It works best if you peel and freeze the banana, to give it a thicker consistency.

Ingredients:

  • 1/4 cup Nuts (cashews, walnuts, almonds, etc.) 1 tbsp Lecithin granules (optional, not a raw ingredient)
  • 1 rounded tbsp ground raw Cacao Nibs (grind in coffee grinder)
  • 1 tbsp ground raw Cacao Powder 1/4 to 1/2 cup
  • Water as needed
  • 2 large peeled & frozen Bananas, sliced
  • 1/4 to 1/2 cup additional Cold Water or as needed for consistency.

Directions

  1. Grind nuts to a powder in blender
  2. Add lecithin (if using)
  3. Add cacao nibs and powder.
  4. Add enough water to cover blades of blender and blend until smooth.
  5. Add frozen banana slices and just enough water to blend.
  6. Blend until smooth and creamy.
  7. Scrape into a tall glass and drink immediately.
Enjoy!
