Cacao, Peanut Butter, Banana and Ashwagandha Smoothie
A delicious and creamy smoothie that will satisfy your chocolate craving without any guilt. The name says it all – chocolate, peanut butter and banana are the main flavor components in this smoothie.
Milk (your choice): Our favorite is unsweetened vanilla almond milk, because it is low in calories and sugar. Feel free to use cow’s milk or any non-dairy milk of your choice.
Cacao: Unsweetened BareOrganics cocoa powder adds a rich chocolaty flavor and color to this smoothie. If you want it extra chocolatey, you can throw in a handful of dark chocolate chips or cacao nibs during the last few seconds of blending.
Peanut Butter: Natural salted peanut butter is our favorite. Use whatever peanut butter you have, or swap for another nut/seed butter.
Frozen Bananas: Frozen bananas not only add the banana flavor, but they add a touch of sweetness and they help to make the smoothie a nice thick consistency.
Honey/Maple Syrup/Agave: Depending on the sugar content of your milk product, you might need to sweeten the smoothie just a touch. A drizzle of honey, maple syrup or agave blends in perfectly. Adjust to suit your taste.
Adaptogen: Add a scoop of BareOrganics ashwagandha. An adaptogenic herb believed to support the body's natural response to occasional stress.
Blend to desired consistency.
