Mocha Banana Smoothie

This smoothie is frosty and decadent and packs in a bit of caffeine; you have been warned.

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup (120 ml) unsweetened almond, hemp or rice milk
  • 1/2 cup (120 ml) very strong brewed coffee, cold
  • 1/3 frozen very ripe medium-sized banana, cut into chunks
  • 1 tablespoon natural or Dutch-processed cocoa powder
  • 1 tablespoon natural peanut butter
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds or flax seeds, optional
  • Ice cubes, optional

Preparation:

  1. Place all the ingredients in blender in order listed and blend until smooth. This drink is rich! Pour over ice cubes or blend in some ice cubes if you want to dilute it somewhat and add frostiness. Serve immediately.

Tips

  • To increase prebiotic fiber and hardiness we like to add oats. In this case we put 2 tablespoons of old fashioned rolled oats in the blender carafe with the almond milk and allow them to soak for 10 minutes. Then proceed with recipe as directed.
  • Cocoa, by the way, is a rich source of antioxidants and polyphenols, which are helpful in gut, brain and cardiovascular health. Potassium is a key mineral for digestive health, and bananas, a low FODMAP fruit we eat most everyday are a great source.
