The ultimate chocolate smoothie
If you feel like a little chocolate therapy, then you need to make this ultimate chocolate smoothie, loaded with superfood goodness and tasting purely delicious. The Healthy Chef Teresa Cutter shares her recipe here.
Made from Naked Chocolat, almond milk, Healthy Chef Protein, banana, avocado and a little honey – a pure, indulgent, chocolaty treat!
What’s great about it?
Bursting with antioxidants, mineral rich cocoa, carob, maca, cinnamon and pure vanilla bean, this potent blend provides sustained energy, supports the endocrine and immune systems and contributes to hormonal balance. My chocolate smoothie makes an amazing recovery drink that is full of essential minerals and protein. Naked Chocolat is rich in cocoa, carob, maca, cinnamon and pure vanilla bean – ingredients that help to provide sustained energy and support the immune system. Almonds are high in magnesium and potassium, which is essential for muscle and nerve function. Boosting your smoothie with Healthy Chef Protein will help to promote recovery, support weight loss and tone lean muscle. For weight loss, it is recommended you get between 80g and 120g of protein per day to aid satiety and repair. Healthy Chef Matcha is high in antioxidants and has the ability to boost your immunity, control your stress and assist in weight loss.
1 banana, frozen and chopped
2 tbsp almond, cashew or coconut butter
1 cup coconut water
1 pinch sea salt
1 tbsp Healthy Chef Protein
1 tbsp Healthy Chef Naked Chocolat
1/4 tsp Matcha Green Tea
Handful of ice
Combine the frozen banana, avocado, nut butter, coconut water, Healthy Chef Protein, Naked Chocolat, Matcha and ice into a good high-speed blender. Blend all the ingredients until creamy and smooth.
