Just say the words “banana” “cocoa” and “smoothie” in the same sentence, and we’re already perking up.
So, if you’re like us and want a boost before your race your kids off to camp or the pool, then look no further. This simple yet filling smoothie is a great way to get that jump start you're get into the day.
Bananas are a great source of energy-revving carbohydrates and potassium, which invigorates your muscles and gives them the "umph" to contract again and again.
This banana-split-inspired breakfast smoothie also contains fiber from the banana a well as plenty of protein from both tofu and soymilk that will keep your energy level constant, so you don’t experience a sugar crash. It will definitely keep you satisfied until lunchtime.
We certainly love our chocolate, as even the faintest smell has a way of putting smiles on our faces, and this recipe satisfies that sweet tooth. Enjoy!
Slice banana and freeze until firm. (We do this the night before). Blend tofu, soymilk, cocoa and honey in a blender until smooth. With the motor running, add the banana slices through the hole in the lid and continue to puree until smooth.
Drink and enjoy!
