Chocolate Banana Smoothie with the Added Benefit of LSA
This decadently rich chocolate banana smoothie has the added benefit of LSA and is one of my breakfast favourites. Perfect if you are craving something sweet and chocolatey.
LSA meal (linseed, sunflower, almond) is a great source of protein, essential vitamins and minerals and helps detoxify the liver. Because linseed and the oil in the almonds are heat-sensitive, store your LSA meal in the fridge.
As for bananas, I like to be frugal about mine. Buy in bulk especially when you can find just ripe bunches in your grocer’s bargain corner. Peel them, break up into bite-sized pieces or slice into 1cm slices and store in a zip-lock bag in the freezer. In fact frozen bananas make a great instant ice cream version of this drink too!
- 1 large ripe banana, peeled
- 1.5 cup milk of choice
- 1 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder or cacao
- 1 tbsp LSA meal
- Break banana into a large blending jug. Add milk, cocoa powder (and your choice of flax seeds or muesli). Blend with a hand blender. Pour into glasses and enjoy.
