Walnut Cacao Smoothie

This recipe is so good, you'll thank me for sharing it with you. It comes from the new Superfoods 24/7 Cookbook by Jessica Nadel, creator of the food blog Cupcakes and Kale



What I love about this smoothie is that it uses good old plain water to blend it all together. I was skeptical as to how it would taste given this fact, but I was really happy with the end result and make this most mornings when I'm at home. 

Sweet, chocolatey and full of omega-3's and antioxidants - you will absolutely love it!

Walnut Cacao Smoothie
Makes 2





ingredients
25g walnuts
250ml filtered water ( chilled if possible)
1 frozen banana
2 pitted medjool dates
2 tsp cacao powder
1 tablespoon almond butter
2-3 ice cubes

Sprinkle with
1 tsp cacao nibs

method
I literally throw it all in together and blend. Pour into a glass and sprinkle with the cacao nibs.

Jess suggests you first blend the first 4 ingredients and then add the remainder and blend again. See how you go.


For an extra boost add a shot of cooled espresso and blend. 

Enjoy x
