Choc-PB-Nana Thrive Smoothie

If you love the combination of chocolate, peanut butter, and a small amount of banana then this thrive smoothie is for you! If you prefer to skip the banana due to health reasons, or preferences, and make this fruit-free, then please do YOU! I sometimes skip the banana and the flavors are still superb with the chocolate and peanut butter taking center stage! It’s such a small amount of banana (½ small frozen banana) and as I am always active, I often toss it in.

You won’t taste the greens, or the cauliflower (in true thrive smoothie style), instead, you will be in choc-peanut butter heaven without realizing the nutrient-loaded 5 to thrive smoothie you have just made yourself. Remember what the 5 to thrive are? Protein, healthy fats, fiber, dark leafy greens, and colored cellular carbs (such as non-starchy veg, fruits, nuts, seeds, and seaweed – plant foods with its fiber walls still intact.)

Recipe by Priscilla Soligo Course: Breakfast, Thrive Smoothies

Ingredients

  • 300g 1¼ Cups Unsweetened Almond Milk

  • 50g ½ Frozen Banana, small

  • 45g ½ Cup Frozen Cauliflower Rice

  • 45g 1½ Cups Dark Leafy Greens

  • 26g 1 Heaped Tbsp Peanut Butter

  • 20g Protein powder ( is not the weighted measurement it is the amount of protein)

  • 14g 2 Tbsps Cacao Powder

  • 2 Tbsps Fibers to choose from: Chia (thicker smoothie), or ground flax, or acacia (thinner smoothie & most gentle), or psyllium husk or powder (no more than 1 Tbsp, as it’s super thick – mix with 1 Tbsp of another fiber here), or use a combination. Start with and if you’re still hungry add an extra Tbsp next time. Drink plenty of water when increasing fiber intake and go slow.

Directions

  • In a high speed blender, add in all the liquids.
  • Add in remaining ingredients.
  • Blend all ingredients until well integrated and creamy smooth.

Notes

  • Storage: Smoothies are best consumed immediately after blending to prevent oxidation and for best taste, nutrient density and flavour. I recommend having your ingredients prepped ahead of time and quickly blending before you head out the door if you are taking this on your way to work, or out with you. Thrive smoothies are potable too!
