Choccy Banana Berry Smoothie
I started drinking smoothies because I wanted to be healthier. Naturally, I assumed that I would have to kick the chocolate habit and stick to a strict larder of fruits and veggies. One day while whipping up some chocolate milk for Callum, I realized that mommy could still have chocolate (of sorts) and stick to the healthier smoothies regimen! That's when the chocolate smoothie was born and although it's included in my 14 Brekkie Smoothies ebook, I first made this smoothie as a lunch replacement. It would make a very good breakfast, however. Especially when you're craving chocolate. A better alternative to a chocolate croissant, for instance.

Ingredients:
For the smoothie


1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup milk
1 tbsp cocoa powder
1 tsp honey
1 tsp rolled oats
1 banana (about 8 frozen banana discs), plus one disc to garnish
3 cubes frozen natural yourt
5 frozen blackberries

All right, let's blitz:

First, tumble in the oats and give them a blitz in the blender.
Add the milk, followed by the vanilla extract and the cocoa powder.
Spoon in the natural yogurt, blackberries and banana drizzle in the honey.
Blitz until smooth and serve with a banana disc on top. (It slowly melts and is so yummy!)

  5. I'm not a huge smoothie drinker, but I do like one now and again. I am however a huge fan of chocolate, so with that being said, I would totally enjoy this smoothie for breakfast or an afternoon snack! It looks so creamy!
