Energy Boosting Shake•
Posted on February 14 2021
Energy shakes are a favourite shake in our household!
I tend to reach for it when I am craving something sweet as it naturally has a sweet and creamy flavour, which is a perfect replacement for the unhealthy sweets.
Due to the banana addition it has a thick and creamy texture, it is a great way to start your day as it gives energy and you won’t feel hunger for a good long while afterwards. Now, I am not saying 'skip breakfast', after all, it is the most important meal of the day! But, if you like me and find you can't stomach brekkie until late morning, if any, then a shake is the perfect addition to the morning.
Benefits of the shake? 100% raw cacao can lower blood pressure & improve circulation. Bananas are high in potassium which is good for your heart health & blood pressure, aids digestion support, supports in reducing pain and fatigue and are a great source of vitamin C. Coconut milk can help support weight loss, contains antioxidants, prevents heart disease, promotes healthy skin & hair and has anti-infammatory properties.
Chocolatey Bananary Energy Boosting Shake
2 bananas - the greener the better!
1 tbsp raw cacao powder
2 tbsp flaxseed
500ml coconut milk (or milk suitable for you)
4 or 5 cubes of ice
OPTIONAL - 1/2 cup of gluten free oats
This recipe is quite simple.... put all of your ingredients into a blender and blend!
You can change the smoothie consistency depending on the ingredients added.
ICE - adding ice will make it more of a milkshake consistency.
OATS - Not all of coeliacs can tollerate oats. The addition of oats to the smoothie make a super 'thick shake' consistency. The smoothie will be still have a thicker milkshake consistency than normal because of the bananas, it is perfectly yummy with or without the oats! Do not feel bad if you need to leave them out.
As always, I love to see what you bake at home and to see photos/hear your feedback. Please share your photos with me by tagging me in on Facebook or Instagram @tmapothecary
