I just had to drop this smoothie recipe very quickly because if you’re a huge fan of chocolate the way I am, then you’re in the right place at the right time with this recipe so take a seat.
I feel like my life is in a whirlwind I barely have a chance to do anything these days, not that I’m complaining but things are changing at a fast pace in my life some of it encompasses some plans for the blog. I want to take things to another level in due time, but as I’m still new to the game and not a season veteran like some of the bloggers I admire I’m going to take things on step at a time.
You may have noticed that I haven’t been posting my usual 3 times a week as of lately, again that’s because I’m busy trying to take things to another level, it’s not always easy making these moves around a full time job, but when there’s a will there’s a way as the proverb goes.
This smoothie is such a delight that I have to gulp this down at least once a week, I especially like to mix in some high quality protein powder and turn this chocolately smoothie into the perfect recovery formula. If you’re a health enthusiast or gym rat then I recommend bulking it up with your favourite protein powder. I’m a hemp girl myself, as its good source of amino acids and lactose friendly.
I paired this with almond milk which is a little different to what I usually do, if you follow my blog you’d know I’m quite partial to coconut milk, but the almond milk taste incredibly awesome, very rich, creamy and most importantly homemade. The sweetness derives from the frozen banana which gives the beverage a lovely bit of thickness might I add – a nice chocolately thickie!
