Simple, healthy and delicious!
Back to school, back to routine! As parents we’re continually on the go with our children and on top of the day-to-day rush we try to make sure our children start their day with balanced breakfasts, we’re packing healthy lunches and then we’re trying to figure out what the family will have for dinner. It doesn’t help when as soon as we get home the kids instantly start yelling “I’m hungry! Can I have a snaaaack?” At times, it’s just be too much. Right? Well before you let the kids just “grab” something out of the pantry, help satisfy their tummies until dinner time with this quick and easy shake.
In your Nutribullet, Vitamix or any other high powered blender, blend the following ingredients and enjoy!
Nutty Chocolate Dream
- 1/3 cup Almonds or Cashews (soaked overnight)
- 1 small ripe banana
- 1 heaping tbsp of Organic Cacao Powder
- 2 cups of cold water
Recipe Yields 3 servings (Roughly 1 cup each serving).
Feel good treating the whole family to this shake as it’s high in protein, fibre, antioxidants, and an excellent source of magnesium and zinc. It also has a high monounsaturated fat content which helps lower cholesterol levels and keeps your heart healthy. Keep this recipe in mind for a quick breakfast on the run, a snack between meals or freeze it into ice pops and enjoy as a treat. You’ll decrease unhealthy tummy fat, increase energy, and simply feel satisfied! For those getting into a workout routine, this shake is perfect as a post workout pick-me-up. It’ll help replenish those electrolytes, repair muscle tissue and reduce lactic acid build-up. Trust me, this good-for-you shake is so yummy you’ll be making it more often than you think.
